‘Dancing With The Stars’ Carrie Ann Inaba Gets Surprise On-Air Proposal

It’s one thing to get proposed to on a jumbo-tron in a baseball game, and it’s another when you get proposed to on one of national television’s most watched morning shows! Lucky Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba got the latter.

While subbing for Kelly Ripa on Live With Regis and Kelly this morning, Carrie Ann was surprised on-air by boyfriend of two years, Jesse Sloan, when he proposed to her, asking for her hand in marriage.

Earlier in the show 43-year-old Carrie Ann had joked about then-false internet rumors that Jesse had put a ring on it, and guest Jake Gyllenhaal even presented her with a mock ring.

The happy NEWLY ENGAGED couple! But in the show’s final minutes, all of that changed. Regis pretended to answer a viewer’s question on how best to propose to his girlfriend. The lighting crew set the mood as violinists ushered in Jesse, who told Carrie Ann how beautiful and inspiring she was to him. After he finally worked up the nerve, he asked, “Will you marry me?”

Carrie Ann joyfully responded, “Yes! I will marry you!” and showed off her new 2.5-carat Rafinity princess-cut ring to the audience.
