Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec are already starting to plan their wedding, and revealed that they will be channeling “Dancing With the Stars” during their first dance as husband and wife. The pair, who got engaged Saturday after meeting on the ABC completion show last year, couldn’t help but gush about their engagement and upcoming ceremony while on the red carpet for Elton John’s annual Oscars viewing party.
“When we were on the show last year, the week before we got kicked off, they gave us a song. And it was Etta James’ ‘At Last,” Herjavec told Us Weekly.
His fiancée added that they were supposed to perform to the classic ballad but never got to do it because they were voted off.
“So it will be our first dance as husband and wife I guess,” Johnson said.
The couple also revealed how Herjavec popped the question, and it sounds like his proposal was nothing short of romantic.
“We went to the house and I had rose petals going up to the pool,” the “Shark Tank” star said. “In the pool was a big swan and on the swan was a box. She pulled the swan in, opened the box, and I said, ‘Actually that’s not for you. That’s for me.’” I opened the box and the ring was inside.”
Herjavec, 53, said Johnson, 39, started crying and “doing crazy sounds” when he asked her to marry him, so he asked again. The professional dancer, however, still didn’t respond because she was crying so much.
“I asked a third time and I was like, ‘OK, this is really uncomfortable,’” Herjavec told the outlet.
Obviously, Johnson eventually said yes.
“I'm so happy,” she said. “It was pretty amazing.”
As previously reported, Herjavec popped the question with a 6.5-carat diamond ring and invited their family and friends over to the house to celebrate. The businessman even flew Johnson’s mom in from Australia for the special occasion.
“I still can’t believe that a year after walking into a dancing studio of all places, my life has changed this much,” Herjavec told People following the engagement. “Kym is an incredible woman and I’m just so excited for what the future brings for us.”
