Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke are fueling speculation that they may be cha-cha-cha-ing their way into a new love connection.

The 32-year-old Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver had recently given 25-year-old Burke a big diamond ring, but on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the two joked their way out of romance-related questions.

When Ellen asks if they are a couple, Burke says, "We're not going to put labels on anything."

Ochocinco adds, "I've been with her for seven weeks, for nine hours a day, every single day. I think I've spent more time then the average married couple with her. We fight and fuss. I'm like, this is what marriage must be like. So I remember the Beyonce song Put a Ring On It, so that's where the ring comes in."

So what is Cheryl expecting as a gift from her mega-rich dancing partner/rumored boyfriend? She tells Ellen, "I'm waiting for my Bentley next week."

Already sounding like a married couple to us!
