Carrie Ann Inaba's boyfriend Jesse Sloan proposed to her on live television yesterday (31st March 2011).
The choreographer became engaged while appearing on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' yesterday after her boyfriend presented her with a 2 and a half carat diamond cut ring, reports People Magazine.Midway through Inaba's interview on the talk show, Jake Gyllenhaal brought out an engagement ring which he said he had found in Carrie Ann's dressing room. Shortly afterwards, the studio lights dimmed as Sloan walked onto the set and said, "I've struggled to find the words to express what you mean to me. You're an inspiration, you're beautiful, you're wonderful, you're everything to me. Will you marry me?", to which Carrie Ann replied, "Yes. I will marry you...You tricked me!". Ann Mangini, of Santa Monica's Rafinity Jewellers, says Jesse bought the princess cut diamond ring several months ago, adding, "He had a very clear idea of ring style and diamond cut: princess cut in a clean platinum mounting. Since the ring was so very simple, for a little flair I suggested we set both his and Carrie Ann's birthstones hidden on the inside of the ring. It's a Rafinity signature detail and a way to symbolically join the happy couple".
Carrie Ann Inaba, a judge on the hit reality show Dancing With The Stars, was previously in a relationship with the former 'So You Think You Can Dance' contestant ARTEM CHIGVINTSEV.
