Shirtless Maksim Chmerkovskiy Kisses Fiancee Peta Murgatroyd in Sexy Ocean Snap

It's midnight somewhere! Maksim Chmerkovskiy and fiancée Peta Murgatroyd shared an early New Year's Eve kiss on Thursday, December 31, while vacationing together in St. Maarten.

Murgatroyd, 29, posted a photo of the sweet moment via Instagram. In the pic, her hunky (and shirtless) husband-to-be, 35, dips her low as they lock lips in the shallow waters of the ocean.

"I'm not sure how 2016 can top this incredible year…but it's an amazing feeling knowing the best is yet to come baby," she captioned the shot, adding the hashtags #grateful and #lifeisgood.

The Dancing With the Stars pros, who first dated and broke up back in 2012 and 2013, got engaged in Miami on December 5. But Chmerkovskiy told Us he knew he wanted to marry her "a couple of years ago."

"This was definitely the best decision I ever made," he told Us of proposing.

Murgatroyd was similarly effusive about her Ukrainian beau. "I can't tell you how happy I am," she gushed to Us exclusively after he popped the question. "I was completely shocked. I'm just overwhelmed with it all right now."
