“We thought we were going to be canceled,” Heidi joked.

Charli – whose dance videos have helped her rack up 146.4m followers on TikTok and 49m on Instagram – might have a bit of an edge over her mum, as she was a competitive dancer for more than 10 years before to start his career on social networks in 2019.

She has also danced with some of the DWTS pros before.

The beauty performed a Dirty Dancing routine with Derek Hough and his sister Julianne on their show, Step Into…The Movies earlier this year.

In an interview with HollywoodLife last year, Hough championed having Charli featured on DWTS: “I think it would be really cool to see one of the D’Amelio sisters there.” Charli is a really talented dancer and she obviously crushes it in content, the TikTok world. I think she would be really good.

Charli and her mom are no strangers to working together, as two stars of The D’Amelio Show docuseries, along with Charli’s dad Marc and sister Dixie.

The duo have also occasionally danced together on Charli’s popular TikToks.

Along with her blossoming career, the young star’s love life also seems to be doing well, as she is currently dating Travis Barker’s 18-year-old son Landon.

The duo arrived hand-in-hand in August at a Kylie cosmetics product launch event at Ulta Beauty Westwood in Los Angeles.

The lovebirds first sparked romance rumors after leaving sister Dixie’s debut album launch party together, and again when eagle-eyed fans noticed they had recently been tattooed by the same tattoo artist.

In July, Charli gushed about her new boyfriend: “He’s just so sweet,” she told Entertainment Tonight at a party hosted by Fanatics for MLB All-Star Week.

During her latest interview, she also revealed how she really feels about her love life going public.

“I think for a long time it was really hard, but now I’m living life first and thinking about what people are going to say afterwards,” she said.

Charli previously had a teenage romance with fellow TikTok star Lil Huddy aka Chase Hudson from late 2019 to early 2020.

Her dating rumors with Landon took off last month when they were seen dating from one of Travis’ concerts.
