It’s a happy day for Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec! The two lovebirds, who met as partners on season 20 of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ are finally engaged! Congratulations, you two!
Yay! Dancing with the Stars pro Kym Johnson, 39, and her longtime love, Shark Tank bigwig Robert Herjavec, 53, are engaged! Robert popped the question on February 27 with a insanely fabulous, 6.5 carat diamond ring, and surprised her with one hell of an engagement party, according to PEOPLE magazine! Can you imagine? This is the first time a DWTS pro has gotten engaged to a contestant, and we think that’s incredibly romantic! Click through for the proposal details!
Robert got down on one knee and proposed to Kym with that amazing sparkler, and took her home, surprising her with 30 of her closest friends and family! Among those included Kym’s mom, who came all the way from Australia to celebrate! Smooth, Robert. Their Dancing with the Stars season 20 castmates were there to give their best wishes, too, as well as Kym’s close friend Carson Kressley. How lovely!

“To celebrate tonight with our family and friends, and my mom who flew in from Australia, wow – I’m just overwhelmed and so happy,” Kym told PEOPLE. “He’s a wonderful man and I’m so lucky.” Robert was equally overwhelmed with love for his new fiancée, gushing too the mag about his girl.
“I still can’t believe that a year after walking into a dance studio of all places, my life has changed this much,” Robert said. “Kym is an incredible woman and I’m just so excited for what the future brings for us.” This is so adorable! He’s so excited to get married, and finally be able to spend the rest of his life with Kym. Robert and Kym started dating in April 2015, after being paired up on Dancing with the Stars. This is the first time a pro has gotten engaged to a contestant; can you believe it? It was a match made in heaven! Robert has joked publicly about getting engaged, and it was clear that he was bashful, and excited about going through with it!
“Here’s the great thing, it’s a leap year,” Herjavec said in January. “On a leap year, the custom is for the women to ask.” Love it! Robert really couldn’t wait for that to happen, though, could he? He and Kym have been talking about getting engaged for quite some time, apparently. He joked to her that he didn’t mind what kind of wine they served at their wedding: “Any wine is fine. I’m not picky. As long as you’re there.” Aww. This will be Kym’s first marriage, and Robert’s second. He has three kids with his ex-wife.
