Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd Engaged – Watch Proposal Video!
At one point during the performance, Chmerkovskiy dropped down to a knee, presented Murgatroyd with a diamond engagement ring, and said, “I’m in love with you, and I want to be in love with you for the rest of my life.” Murgatroyd, of course, said, “Yes.” That prompted the entire audience to applaud the newly engaged couple.
Chmerkovskiy even posted the proposal on Instagram, along with a caption that noted, “She said ‘yes'” (see above). Chmerkovskiy’s brother Val later shared a sweet message on Instagam read, “I love the two of you with all my heart… You’re family now and that makes you my sister, the second most important woman in my life. What’s mine is yours. Forever and always.”
