He may have had a disappointing week on "Dancing With The Stars," but William Levy has something new to smile about. The Cuban telenovela hunk is on the cover of this week's People Magazine!

In the magazine's cover story (on newsstands now), Levy talks about the warm reception he's gotten from fans on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars." "To come to this country and receive this kind of love from people you don’t even know, it's amazing," the humble actor tells the magazine.

Levy's DWTS partner Cheryl Burke, who says William has "12-pack abs," tells the magazine she's never seen the show's audience get so excited about a contestant. "I have never heard it that loud in there," Burke says. "He's like a rock star!"

The telenovela star, who until recently was best known as Jennifer Lopez's love interest in her "I'm Into You" video, also talked to People about his early years in Cuba before emigrating to the U.S. at the age of 15. "I try to give my kids everything I never had," said the 31-year-old Levy whose son Christopher is 6 and daughter Kailey is 2.

Congratulations to William Levy on his People Magazine cover!
