Maks Chmerkovskiy can't even enjoy his mirror-ball trophy win because everyone is still speculating about his dating life. Even he is getting sick of all of the rumors.

On Friday, he tweeted out a message from India, where he is working as a guest judge on that country's version of Dancing With the Stars.

Over the last several weeks, the media has been gossiping about his possible involvement with his DWTS partner Meryl Davis, his former girlfriend Kate Upton and newly single Jennifer Lopez. He just wants to be single and have fun right now.

However, there's one thing he's ready to do — be a father. In a recent interview with Social Life Magazine, Chmerkovskiy said, "I raised so many children at the studio that I am ready to create one of my own. I am ready to have a family now. I need an outlet. I have so much I want to give, and I need someone to give it to."

There will probably be women lining up to share that family life with the bad boy of the ABC competition show. He's been a fan favorite ever since he joined the show back in 2006.

One thing his future lady will need to understand is his relationship with his "extremely tight family."

Chmerkovksiy told the magazine, "My brother, Valentin, shares a place with me in L.A., and my mom and dad come to the West Coast to visit me often. I am very close with my dad: we are best friends."

Hopefully, his fans are taking note of the qualities he is looking for in a future mate — lots of babies and family time.
