Dancing With The Stars' Karina Smirnoff is engaged to boyfriend Brad Penny, who Karina calls a "Southern Gentleman."
The couple actually got engaged over a month ago, but Karina said they "kept it quiet because my family is in New York and Brad's family is in Oklahoma so we kind of wanted them to come out and celebrate and be a family first before we let the cat out of the bag."
Karina says that Brad and her manager had planned an elaborate proposal:
"We went to this restaurant and [my manager] got on her phone and said 'this guy is killing me,' and got up and walked away. Then Brad walked in and it still didn't register. He got down on one knee and he opened the box and I said, 'Thank you'. I honestly didn't expect it."
Karina attended Tao Las Vegas's five-year anniversary party Saturday night and showed off her new 4.5 carat Asscher Cut diamond engagement ring.
Whoa!! Get it gurl!
Congrats to the happy couple!
