Derek Hough's relationship with former Dancing with the Stars partner and current girlfriend Shannon Elizabeth has been going so well that it had led to Hough -- and his band -- moving into the actress's Hollywood Hills home.
"[Mark Ballas] and I have an apartment, and I'm supposed to be living there," Hough toldPeople in a Tuesday report. "But I live with Shannon at her house, and our three [Almost Amy] bandmates live with Shannon and I."
The band Almost Amy -- which consists of Hough, Ballas, singer Emily Grace, drummer Harry Sullivan and bassist Sam Marder -- had originally moved into Elizabeth's pad temporarily, however, Hough told People that he and Elizabeth had grown used to having them around the house and encouraged them to stay.
"[Elizabeth] was like, 'They can stay here until they find a new place,' and, once they started talking about finding a new place, Shannon and I were like, 'Wait, we're going to miss them when they go,'" Hough said. "And we were like, 'Why don't you just stay here? We'll make rooms up for everyone.'"
"Shannon's rooms are so cluttered," he added. "But she's actually been de-junking all of her rooms so that each of them can have their own room."
In addition to his off-screen domestic bliss, things are also going well for Hough on the dance floor. Hough and his current Dancing with the Stars celebrity partner -- former Rock Star host Brooke Burke -- led the judges' leaderboard for the fourth consecutive performance on Monday, securing the first perfect ten score of the season from judge Len Goodman for their jive.
