It appears Maddie Ziegler may have started dating. The 14-year-old “Dance Moms” alum has sparked rumors she’s in a relationship with Australian teen Jack Kelly after posting a shot of them cozying up together in a bathroom.

Maddie took a moment away from her Australian dance tour with sister Mackenzie Ziegler on Wednesday evening to post a photo with Jack. The image shows Jack posing with his arm wrapped around Maddie’s neck as she snaps the picture. Maddie did not explain the image to her 8.7 million followers, only including a heart emoji in the caption. Jack posted the same image and emoji to his Instagram page.

This isn’t the first time Maddie has shared a photo of her and Jack. On Wednesday, she also posted a snap her, Jack and another male enjoying a game of bowling.

Maddie, nor her mother and former “Dance Moms” co-star Melissa Gisoni, who joined her daughters on tour, hasn’t addressed the dating rumors. So, just who is Jack Kelly? It’s entirely possible Jack and Maddie are just simply friends. After all, Maddie has made it clear her trip down under, which concludes Thursday, was made better with help from her pals and one of those pals could very well be Jack.

No matter Maddie’s relationship status, the film star appears more concerned about business. After sparking the dating rumors Maddie took to Instagram to announce a call for fans to submit requests for a limited edition T-shirt, which will be added to her Maddie Style collection. “A graphic tee is a lot to say a lot without saying a word,” Maddie said. “What would your shirt say?”

Maddie has also been promoting her upcoming film “Ballerina” (also known as “Leap!”) as of late. In the animated flick she voice the character of Camille, a prima ballerina with perfect technique. The movie hits the U.S. on March 3.
