Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson have had a whirlwind romance since meeting on ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ so of course they had to have an elaborate engagement! How exactly did Robert pop the question? We have EXCLUSIVE details right here!
Proposals don’t necessarily have to be spectacular, but Robert Herjavec, 53, certainly wanted his to be! When he asked his Dancing With The Stars love, Kym Johnson, 39, to marry him on Feb. 27, he involved a swan to get the job done. Clearly the over-the-top proposal was perfect, because the two can’t stop gushing over their engagement! Get the full story straight from Robert!
“We went to the house and I had rose petals going up to the pool. In the pool was a big swan and on the swan was a box,” Robert told HollywoodLife.com at Elton John’s Oscar viewing party. “She pulled the swan in, opened the box, and I said, ‘Actually that’s not for you. That’s for me.’ And I opened the box and the ring was inside. And I said, ‘Will you marry me?'”
Aww! Of course, this left Kym speechless, so it took a few minutes for her to give her answer. “She started crying and doing crazy sounds,” Robert continued. “And then I asked again and she started crying and doing crazy sounds. And I asked a third time and I was like, ‘OK this is really uncomfortable.'”
Apparently the swan made things a little overwhelming for Kym! Or maybe it was the fact that Robert had enlisted 30 of their closest friends and family members — including Kym’s mom all the way from Australia — that made Kym so tongue-tied. Either way, she was able to finally respond with an excited “Yes,” and the engagement celebration began!
The happy couple have been together since April 2015, just a couple of months after being paired as partners on DWTS. They didn’t confirm their relationship until September, but obviously sparks have been majorly flying since their first meeting and they couldn’t wait to take things to the next level!
Robert said in January that he and Kym had been talking marriage for quite some time, and he had actually suggested that Kym should be the one to propose since it’s a leap year. But Robert admitted that he couldn’t wait for Kym any longer and he had to take initiative! Looks like things certainly worked out for him, and we couldn’t be happier for the two of them!
