Team Sharkaroo shippers rejoice, because Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson are engaged, according to a Feb. 27 People exclusive. The winsome duo also confirmed the happy news themselves with a pair of adorable back to back tweets that saw the “Shark Tank” star write “I asked…” and the 39-year old “Dancing with the Stars” pro respond with “I said yes.”
Per the People report, Herjavec presented Johnson with a 6.5-carat sparkler. The two then celebrated their engagement with a group of friends and family, including Johnson’s mother, who flew in from Australia for the occasion.
Herjavec, 53, and Johnson first met when they were paired up for the 20th season of “DWTS” during the spring of 2015. Although they didn’t win the mirror ball trophy –that honor went to actress Rumer Willis and Valentin Chmerkovskiy– Herjavec and Johnson’s sweet romance quickly gave them favored status with fans. They dated for 10 months and shared travels around the world before Herjavec popped the question. Herjavec was previously married to Diane Plese. It will be Johnson’s first marriage.
Herjavec and Johnson are far from the only “Dancing with the Stars” alums to find luck in love in recent times. Witney Carson, who won the season 19 title with actor Alfonso Ribeiro, married long-time boyfriend Carson McAllister on Jan. 1, just half a year after pro Lindsay Arnold tied the knot with her own high school sweetheart, Sam Cusick. In the proposals-department, ballroom favorite Maksim Chmerkovskiy popped the question to long-time on again, off again girlfriend Peta Murgatroyd on Dec. 5, and Mark Ballas became engaged to singer BC Jean over Thanksgiving week.
