“I knew Jenna was the one when I saw how close she is with her family and how she interacts with her nieces and nephews,” Chmerkovskiy, 32, gushed to Us. “Family is everything to me and I can’t wait for us to build one together.”
Johnson, 24, revealed on Thursday, June 14, that Chmerkovskiy popped the question during the duo’s trip to Venice, Italy. Jewelry company Jacob&Co confirmed to Us that he proposed with a cushion cut diamond ring with a halo around it.
“I knew the moment I met you, you were the man of my dreams and I wanted to be with you forever,” she wrote on Instagram. “Babychka Мой любовь thank you for making my fairytale come true today! Cannot believe I get to call you my FIANCÉ!!!! #engaged.”
Chmerkovskiy also shared the moment on Instagram, simply writing, “I can’t wait to make you my wife ♥.”
After the couple ended their on-again, off-again relationship in 2016, Johnson and Chmerkovskiy reconciled in 2017. The So You Think You Can Dance alum told Us Weekly in May that she can’t wait to start a family with her man.
“You know, [Val] never grew up with kids. And so all of a sudden, this baby plops into their lives and he’s like, ‘What do I do?’ But it’s been awesome,” she gushed about his brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd’s 17-month-old son, Shai. “It’s great to have training. He needs to learn how to change a diaper. That’s going to be a for-sure thing. But it’s so cute. He’s such a good uncle and he loves [Shai] so much.”
