It’s wedding bells for former “Dancing With The Stars” partners.

Australian dancer Kym Johnson showed off the 6.5-carat engagement ring Canadian tech mogul Robert Herjavec gave her to photographers outside Elton John’s Oscars party in West Hollywood on Sunday.

The reality TV alums confirmed their celebratory news the day before.

The couple’s “insane chemistry” sparked dating rumours last year, which followed the pair for months after they met on season 20 of the hit ABC show.

But it was all platonic at the beginning, Johnson explained in an interview back in January.

“We got to know each other on a friendship level. That developed into something else. We're both each other's number one fans, and have respect for each other,” she told People at the time.

On Sunday, she called herself “the luckiest girl in the world” after Herjavec proposed.


According to HollywoodLife, rose petals lined a path to a pool where a “big swan” carried a box holding the ring. Johnson pulled the swan in and opened the box, to read a message asking, “Will you marry me?”

The pair began dating 10 months ago, shortly after Herjavec separated from his wife of 25 years, Diane Plese.

Herjavec, a former “Dragons' Den” judge, has appeared on “Shark Tank” since 2009. And on Saturday, he couldn’t contain his excitement looking ahead to life together with his fiancée.

“Kym is an incredible woman and I'm just so excited for what the future brings for us,” he said.
