‘Dancing with the Stars’ Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Are Engaged
Love is alive in well on the set of DWTS!
Maksim Chmerkovskiy proposed to girlfriend Peta Murgatroyd onstage Saturday evening (Dec. 5, 2015) at the Sway: A Dance Trilogy show in Miami. “She said ‘yes,'” the former Dancing with the Stars pro wrote on Instagram alongside a photo from the beautiful proposal.
In the snap, Chmerkovskiy can be seen kneeling before his love on a stage, holding a ring in one hand and a microphone in the other. Other dancers can be seen cheering and clapping behind them as Murgatroyd covers her mouth in shock. “I’m in love with you, and I want to be in love with you for the rest of my life,” he reportedly said before getting on his knees.
Peta later posted a photo to her own Instagram, writing: “I said yes!!!!!! 💍 You have my heart forever my love. Love always wins,” alongside of photo her she, Maks, and her ring.
Maks’ brother Val wrote his own heartfelt post on social media moments after the show ended. “I love the two of you will all my heart. You have my brothers loyalty, heart. His one and only for the rest of his life,” he wrote. “You’re family now and that makes you my sister, the second most important woman in my life. What’s mine is yours. Forever and always.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
