‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro Karina Smirnoff had a big announcement this weekend: she’s engaged! Here she is showing off her ring at Tao Las Vegas. Check out that rock. Karina is engaged to baseball player Brad Penny.
“He got down on one knee and he opened the box and I said, ‘Thank you’, said Smirnoff of Penny’s Oct. 4 proposal.
Brad couldn’t make it to Vegas this past weekend, but it sounds like he knows how to make it up to her:
The strapping pitcher… sent her a hand-written note in a fortune cookie apologizing for his absence—complete with a stunning Everlon diamond necklace! “I’m marrying a Southern Gentleman,” said Smirnoff, who accepted her fiancé’s proposal following a year-long courtship.
Jewelry has a way of making things better, doesn’t it?
Congratulations to the couple!
