Look who’ll be dancing down the aisle soon!
“Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba, 43, is engaged to her accountant beau of two years, Jesse Sloan, 39.
And how did Sloan pop the question? On live TV!
Sloan surprised Inaba Thursday while she subbed in for Kelly Ripa as guest co-host of “Live! With Regis and Kelly,” when he came out on stage, got down on bended knee, presented a sparkly ring and proposed on the air.
“I struggle to find the words to express what you mean to me,” Sloan said to Inaba as she welled up. “You’re an inspiration. You’re everything to me. Will you marry me?”
“Yes,” an enthusiastic Inaba said. “I will marry you.”
It seems as if the reality judge had some idea that her handsome younger man was The One–Inaba set off some premature engagement alarms in an interview earlier this month – which ironically, she mentioned were false reports … just moments before she actually did become engaged.
“We are planning a summer wedding on the beach,” Inaba told Prevention magazine in March. “We want everyone to jump in the water with us after our vows, so it will have to be someplace warm and tropical.”
