“Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba got engaged to her boyfriend on live TV this morning.
Inaba, who was guest hosting “Live! With Regis and Kelly,” got the surprise of her life when Philbin read a viewer’s email asking for suggestions on how to propose to his girlfriend.
The viewer turned out to be Inaba’s beau Jesse Sloan who came out from backstage carrying a 2.5-carat princess-cut diamond engagement ring by Raffinity.
“I struggle to find the words to express what you mean to me,” Sloan said to Inaba. “You’re an inspiration. You’re everything to me. Will you marry me?” he asked.
“Yes,” said Inaba, wiping away a tear, “I will marry you.”
Inaba, who denied engagement rumors last month, has said they would like to get married on the beach this summer.
