Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson are engaged. The “Shark Tank” star and the “Dancing With The Stars” pro, who were paired together during Season 20 of the reality competition show, are getting married after being together for 10 months. Gossip Cop has no doubt their first dance at the wedding will be pretty well choreographed.

The couple confirmed their engagement on Twitter. Herjavec wrote, “I asked …. @kym_johnson,” which she retweeted, along with an emoji of a diamond ring and a note that read, “I said yes @robertherjavec.” The “Shark Tank” popped the question to Johnson with a ring that’s reportedly 6.5-carats. This is Johnson’s first marriage.

As Gossip Cop reported last March, shortly before Herjavec competed on “Dancing With The Stars,” the entrepreneur and his wife Diane Plese began divorce proceedings after being together for 25 years. It was then that Herjavec, a father of three, and Johnson began to grow close.

Herjavec noted right after his season began, “Kym has become a great friend, and it is so much fun to be able to share this experience with her.” But when questioned days later by paparazzi about the nature of their relationship after they were caught kissing outside Greenblatt’s Deli in Los Angeles, the tech mogul said they were “just dancing” pals, adding, “It’s just great to have a friend to go through it with.” They were, however, quietly dating.

Then last June, Star jumped the gun and published a false report that the couple got engaged in Paris after Johnson supposedly proposed to Herjavec. As Gossip Cop noted at the time, a rep for Johnson assured us it was untrue. Now the engagement news is entire true.
