Congratulations! ‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant and Olympian Nastia Liukin got engaged! Her boyfriend, Matt Lombardi, proposed to her on June 1 and she said yes! Click to see her gorgeous ring.
Season 20 of Dancing With The Stars might go down in history as the season of romance. First, Noah Galloway, 33, proposed to his girlfriend on air, and now, Nastia Liukin is engaged! The 25-year old Olympian announced on June 1 that she and hockey player Matthew Lombardi, 33, are getting married!
Nastia won gold in the 2008 Olympics but the former gymnast only has eyes for diamonds, thanks to Matthew. Nastia showed off her huge rock on her twitter account on June 1, adding “So, this just happened.”
That’s a fabulous ring! And the picture looked so romantic! Matthew stood in the background, next to a lovely flower bush. His arms were outstretched, obviously in joy that Nastia said yes!
Matt’s friend and fellow hockey player, Ben Smith, confirmed the engagement, sending his love to the new couple! This is so sweet! Congratulations to Nastia and Matthew!
In Hockey, when one player scores three times in a game, it’s called a hat trick. Now that Nastia and Noah are engaged, will Season 20 score an engagement hat trick with Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson? Sources EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com that the Shark Tank star is so heads-over-heels for his dancing partner that he can’t wait “to make it official.”
Send your congratulations to Nastia and Matthew below, HollywoodLifers!
