Is DWTS' Val Chmerkovskiy Thinking About Marriage?
There may be another Dancing with the Stars wedding soon if Jenna Johnson has anything to say about it. The Dancing with the Stars pro recently joked to Entertainment Tonight that "time's a-ticking" for her boyfriend and fellow DWTS alum dancer Val Chmerkovskiy to propose — and he seems more than casually interested in putting a ring on it.
We know Chmerkovskiy is more than casually thinking about a proposal because he's not staying quiet about it. He recently quote-tweeted a GIF of Johnson in her ballroom dress, writing, "I should def put a ring on it" with three emojis: eyeballs, heart eyes and a crown. It's just another example of his gushing about Johnson on social media since the couple rekindled their on-again, off-again romance last summer — and we love it.
Another great example of Chmerkovskiy's public pronouncements of adoration involves this super sweet video he edited and then posted on Instagram for her birthday on April 12.
Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?
The couple has spent a lot of time apart recently while Johnson has been filming a mini-season of DWTS and Chmerkovskiy has been on a national tour with his brother and sister-in-law, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd.
Johnson admitted that the time might not be right for an engagement when she spoke to Entertainment Tonight, but she also answered in the affirmative when Lauren Zima said that Chmerkovskiy is the guy for her. “We’ll see," Johnson said. "We both have very big things happening right now, so we’ll let that ride over… maybe we’ll go to Fiji!”
People revealed on Tuesday that Johnson and her dance partner, Adam Rippon, have plans to double date once his boyfriend flies out from his current home in Helsinki, Finland. Although Chmerkovskiy told ET that he sometimes gets jealous of Johnson's dance partners, she told People that he's been nothing but supportive — even helping Rippon perfect shapes and techniques she couldn't teach as well.
“He’s flown out for the past two shows, and I know he’s so proud of Adam and wants to see us go all the way,” Johnson said. “It’s so nice for a male contestant to see a male professional dance. It’s just so helpful to see certain shapes that maybe a girl can’t show as well.”
In December, Chmerkovskiy told People that he's "the best version of [himself]" when he's with Johnson and admitted that he had babies on the brain... but he wants to do things "old century style" and get married first. So, when's the engagement announcement coming? We're all holding our breath.
