Dancing with the Stars professionals get engaged during live show

Professional dancer Sasha Farber proposed to his girlfriend Emma Slater live on U.S. show Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night (04Oct16).
The dancing duo performed a routine together to Bruno Mars’ Just the Way You Are on the results show episode, and once they had finished their dance, Sasha took Emma’s hands and said, “Babe, I wanted to do this for such a long, long time,” before getting down on one knee to cheers from the audience.
He took a jewellery box from his pocket and said, “I love you so much. Will you marry me?” as he presented it to a shocked Emma, who managed to say “Yes” through her giggles. They then hugged and kissed and were joined by other professionals on the dance floor as streamers were launched and a message reading “She said YES!” appeared onscreen at the back of the floor.
“Sasha just proposed to Emma and thankfully she said yes because we didn’t have graphics for the other option,” co-host Tim Bergeron joked.
The couple had been friends for two years and began dating in 2011 and Emma recently told reporters she “would like to” get engaged soon and had been “hinting pretty heavily”.
During the results show, both Vanilla Ice and Babyface were sent home during the season’s first double elimination, but they both maintained a positive outlook while on air, with Babyface saying, “It’s been an amazing experience” and the Ice Ice Baby star adding, “Dancing makes you happy and this is just a happy experience. I’m honoured to be here.”
