Until recently, Sean Lowe was running around in secret with not one but two women!
Much as he did with Giudici, Lowe had to keep his relationship with Murgatroyd quiet until The Bachelor finale aired on March 11, as ABC producers didn’t want to take the spotlight away from the dating show.
“We had to be very secretive. We had to dance in locations away from all the other dancers so that paparazzi couldn’t take pictures,” Lowe, 29, told PEOPLE at Monday’s premiere.
Murgatroyd, 26, said it wasn’t easy to keep her mouth shut. “It was kind of hard to keep it a secret,” the Australian dancer said. “We couldn’t say a word.”
