Kym Johnson Flashes 6.5 Carat Diamond Ring After Announcing Her Engagement to Robert Herjavec

Another Dancing with the Stars pro is set to walk down the aisle! Kym Johnson is engaged to Shark Tank star and her partner from season twenty of the hit ABC celebrity dancing reality show, Robert Herjavec.

Kym excitedly confirmed the engagement on Instagram, captioning a photo of her with her new fiancé, saying, “I never thought a year ago I’d meet someone who would change my life completely! I’m the luckiest girl in the world because last night the love of my life @robert_herjavec asked me to marry him and I said yes!”

Not many were surprised when the couple partnered up off-screen shortly before the start of the season last March. Dancing with the Stars has a well-known history of real romances sparking between its dancing duos as they spend long hours in the studio to create chemistry onstage. However, Kym and Robert are among the few that survived off-camera and went the distance.

Robert said he knew right away that Kym was special. He told People magazine, “I still can’t believe that a year after walking into a dance studio of all places, my life has changed this much. Kym is an incredible woman and I’m just so excited for what the future brings for us.” The 53-year-old Canadian businessman proposed with a stunning 6.5-carat diamond ring and the couple celebrated shortly after with family and friends.

The 39-year-old Australian dancing pro has been engaged once before to cricket player Shane Watson, though the wedding was eventually called off. Robert has been separated from his wife Diane Plese since July 2014 and the two have three children together, Caprice, Skye and Brendan.

Though Kym and Robert finished sixth place on DWTS, they brought real heat to the show, even capping off one of their performances with a surprise kiss. We can’t wait to see what they have planned for the wedding dance!
