“Dancing With the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba received a surprise proposal from her boyfriend Jesse Sloane on live television today! Check out the video below.
Carrie Ann Inaba, 43, burst into tears when her boyfriend Jesse Sloane, 38, got down on one knee to propose while she was filling in for Kelly Ripa on “Live! with Regis and Kelly”.
Regis Philbin knew about the proposal and read a letter from a “viewer” who wanted to ask his girlfriend of two years to marry him, but was unsure just how to do it.
At that time, Jesse walked on to the set carrying a giant princess-cut engagement ring, as the show’s lights dimmed and a violinists played.
Sloane said, “I struggle to find the words to express what you mean to me. You’re an inspiration. You’re everything to me. Will you marry me?”
Carrie Ann was overcome with emotion and replied, “Yes. I will marry you.”
Inaba never guessed she’d be leaving today’s show engaged. She said, “I’m shocked. I should have thought something was up.”
