Val proposed to Jenna while they were vacationing in Venice, Italy. His proposal took by her complete surprise but she was elated in the end.
They are engaged! Val Chmerkovskiy went down on one knee and popped the big question to his longtime girlfriend, Jenna Johnson. The two had been spending some quality time together in Venice, Italy when Val took her by surprise and asked her to marry him with a gorgeous looking wedding ring. Jenna did not waste a single minute and quickly responded with a yes.
Jenna took to Twitter to announce the good news and share her joy with her fans. “#ENGAGED @iamValC.” she captioned the two pictures which showed the moment Val went down on his knee to ask the question and the other which showed the moment Jenna said yes. Val was also not behind when it came to sharing the good news with his fans. He took the same picture to Instagram and wrote, " I can’t wait to make you my wife ♥👑.”
Speaking to People, Val could not stop gushing about his fiancee. “My life has changed because of [her,]” he said. “And I find myself to be the best version of myself that I’ve ever been. She’s awesome.” The Dancing with the Stars pros dated on and off in 2015. In July 2017, the couple gave rise to speculations that they have got back together after photos surfaced of them getting cozy at his brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s nuptials to dancer Peta Murgatroyd.
Jenna also shared her excitement on Instagram as she wrote, " I knew the moment I met you, you were the man of my dreams and I wanted to be with you forever. Babychka Мой любовь thank you for making my fairytale come true today! Cannot believe I get to call you my FIANCÉ!!!! #engaged.” Speaking to US Weekly last month Jenna hinted that marriage had been a topic on the table for the pair.
“We have [talked about the next steps],” she said in the interview. “I think our past few months have been a little crazy … So we kind of just discussed, ‘Let’s just get through these next few months and then we’ll kind of figure it out.’” At the same time, Jenna confessed that the pair does plan on having kids and has been looking forward to the time when they will have their own.
“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. “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.” Val has also echoed the same thoughts. “I think she would love to be a mother,” he said. “But she also has so many incredible things going on in her life and I would feel very selfish to interrupt them for nine months. But definitely soon, hopefully."
