That Mirrorball's got nothin' on this ring! Dancing With the Stars alum Nastia Liukin showed off some shiny new bling on Monday, June 1, when she revealed that she's engaged to boyfriend Matthew Lombardi

The Olympic gold medalist, 25, shared a picture of her massive diamond engagement ring on Twitter, writing, "So this just happened…" The pic features a close-up shot of her left hand, with her overjoyed fiancé in the background.

"Matt proposed in Boston last night with a beautiful ring he designed himself," the bride-to-be tells Us Weekly. "He told me we were going to celebrate together, and to my surprise, my parents, best friend, and his family and best friend were waiting there to celebrate with us. We are both so excited for our future together."

Lombardi, 27, is the co-founder of the team-building platform Venture Up. According to his Twitter account, he graduated from Boston College, where he was a member of the hockey team. 

Liukin, meanwhile, is a student at New York University. She also recently co-founded her own agency, the Shine Agency, with Liz Ballard.

"I've worked with several agents over my career, none of whom represented who I was or brought projects to the table that really reflected me as a person, opportunities that I could be passionate about," she told Us Weekly after her DWTS elimination last month. "We have joined forces and hope to represent people that we really believe have stories to tell and brands to build."
