Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson: Engaged!
It’s been, what, a good 16 months since Val Chmerkovskiy and Amber Rose broke up? A lot has changed since then.
Valentin has been dating Jenna Johnson, and this Dancing with the Stars power couple has not been shy about how much they love each other.
But now, they’ve made it official — because Val got down on one knee and proposed! Yes, there are pictures.
Jenna Johnson was overwhelmed with joy by Val’s proposal.
She shared the sweet images of that beautiful moment (which we have for you below), captioning them on Instagram.
“I knew the moment I met you,” Jenna writes. “You were the man of my dreams and I wanted to be with you forever.”
That is so beautiful! And, of course, so rare for someone to be right!
“Babychka Мой любовь,” she writes. “Thank you for making my fairytale come true today!”
Note that the part of her caption that is clearly in Cyrillic script — and, you know, Russian — just means “my love.” But context made that pretty clear, anyway.
“Cannot believe I get to call you my FIANCE!!!!” She concludes, ending her post with the tag: “#engaged”
(Take a moment to appreciate how happy she looks!)
Val Chmerkovskiy shared the same sweet photos that Jenna did.
He kept his caption more succinct — short and sweet and to the point.
“I can’t wait to make you my wife,” he wrote.
He followed that line with a tasteful black heart emoji and a golden crown emoji.
(She said yes, folks)
You may have recognized the architecture behind them and figured out that they were in Italy for this photo.
Italy is a favored destination for romantic trips, engagements, and even weddings.
If you didn’t pick up on their location from this photo, that’s okay. Earlier pics that the two have shared make their location a bit more obvious.
They’ve even shared pics from Venice, showing its legendary (but sadly filthy) canals.
Remember, these two have been sparking romance rumors since all the way back in early 2016.
So when Jenna says that she knew that she wanted Val from the moment she laid eyes upon him, it’s not difficult to believe.
When rumors swirled of their relationship last year, they seemed to confirm it by locking lips in an on-screen kiss on Dancing with the Stars.
Fans, who have watched their love blossom on social media, were overjoyed at the news.
They took to the comments, mostly to write variations of “congratulations!”
“I was waiting for this to happen!” one fan posts.
Another writes to Jenna: “you are having the best year!!! congratulations,” surrounding their words with emotional emojis.
“Yaaaaaaaaassssssss!!!!!” another says, summing up their enthusiasmin a single word.
Our heartfelt congratulations go out to Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy.
They’re clearly crazy about each other and they deserve this happiness.
Plenty of people are going to be envious of one or both of them, and that’s honestly pretty normal. They’re both gorgeous, talented, and famous.
We hope that these two incredible dancers enjoy their engagement, whether it turns out to be a lengthy or short one.
Love is amazing.
