Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd Engaged (PHOTOS)

Congratulations to Dancing with the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd, who got engaged last night.

The proposal took place on the the dance floor during a performance of “Sway” at the Olympia Theater in Miami, in front of the audience and fellow cast members.

Maksim told Peta, “I’m in love with you, and I will be in love with you for the rest of my life…will you marry me?” and of course, she said yes!

I kind of knew a couple of years ago,” Maksim told Us, immediately following the proposal. “But it’s a process. With this family, the hardest part of the process was to keep it a secret. …this was definitely the best decision I ever made.”

“The thing is, Peta’s been part of the family for so long, it was a natural thing, but it was [also] an overdue thing,” Val Chmerkovskiy, Maksim’s younger brother said. “We were all waiting for it. But I think when it happens it’s fairly surreal and it’s beautiful.”

“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Peta told Us. “I was completely shocked. I’m just overwhelmed with it all right now.”

Check out photos posted by the happy couple, Maks and Peta, and a short video of the special moment.
