Dancing With The Stars Engagement

Posted by ctanglefoot on January 4, 2009

E! News is reporting  Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are looking to perfect their pas de deux.

The Dancing With the Stars pros took the whole ringing in the New Year literally, getting engaged just before the calendar flipped to Jan. 1, a source close to the couple confirms to E! News. Chmerkovsky sealed the deal with a Harry Winston number.

No official comment so far from the hoofers’ respective camps.

The betrothal came between DWTS tour dates in Salt Lake City and Tulsa, Okla.—and a little more than six months after Smirnoff, 30, announced she and former Dancing partner Mario Lopez had ended their two-year relationship.

She and fellow Ukraine native Chmerkovskiy, 28, hooked up shortly thereafter.

Chermkovskiy joined DWTS in season two and last season partnered with Misty May-Treanor. Smirnoff has been on since season three, most recently teaming with Rocco DiSpirito.

Karina and Maksim will not be the first of Dancing With The Stars pros to marry. In September of 2007, Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo tied the knot between season of Dancing With The Stars.

No word on a wedding date, but both are expected back when season eight kicks off March 9.
