Last night’s episode of Dancing With the Stars included more than just the live results and entertaining moves in the ballroom, it also included a surprise marriage proposal.
Dancing pros Sasha Farber and Emma Slater took to the floor for a contemporary number together, but Slater had no idea that her beau had planned to ask her to marry him on live T.V. right after their dance.
Host Tom Bergeron was in on what was going on and set things up for Farber to propose.
“First of all, you guys have great chemistry,” the host began. “And Sasha, I’ve always thought you had the potential to actually host. So I’m going to give the show over to you.”
Slater looked confused for a moment but then was overcome with emotion when she realized what was going on.
Farber got down on one knee and said, “I’ve been meaning to do this for such a long time. I love you so, so much. Will you marry me?”
Slater happily accepted as the crowd cheered and the show’s contestants and fellow dancers joined them on the floor to celebrate.
On Wednesday, Slater took to Instagram and shared video of the sparkler Farber gave her.
It’s 7am here and I am standing in my garden doing this. I can’t believe that’s my finger wearing the second most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!! The sapphire in this literally changes colour in different lights, I’ve never seen anything like it, I’m so unbelievably in love with it! I’ve always been a coloured stone person, and I just can’t believe this is my engagement ring (BTW the first most beautiful thing is also featured in this video ????) @sashafarber1 #EshaEngaged #Sapphire #ILoveMyFiance ????????????????
