'DWTS' Pros Emma Slater & Sasha Farber Got Engaged ... on Live TV ... & O. M. G.

Emma Slater and Sasha Farber engaged

This week has been one filled with romance and love. Seriously. Whether cupid is equipped with fairy dust or his handy bow and arrow, he's definitely brightened up the week for a handful of lovebirds. And some of those lovebirds include Dancing with the Stars pros Emma Slater and Sasha Farber.

After being eliminated from the show last week along with dance partner Rick Perry, Slater joined her boyfriend and costar Farber for what she thought was simply a contemporary dance routine on this week's episode. Much to her surprise (and ours) it turned out to be an elaborate proposal, as Farber dropped to one knee and professed his love -- with the cameras rolling.

He told his longtime girlfriend, "I've wanted to do this for such a long time. I love you so, so much." And then asked, "Will you marry me?" In an exclusive interview with E!, he confessed that he had been nervous before going on stage (for reasons other than the actual dance):

I touched my hands and they were sweating, and I was like, 'Oh my god, I've still got to do this dance. And then I've got this in my pocket, what if it falls out?' I didn't know what to expect.

The two had been dating for some time and even split at one point in 2014. But since then they've obviously reconciled -- making for a beautiful love story. The sweetest part? Sasha went the old-fashioned route and asked for Emma's dad's blessing before asking for her hand in marriage.

Since the proposal, Slater has posted multiple times to her social media expressing her excitement over being engaged (and we can't blame her with a rock like that):

I can't believe that's my finger wearing the second most beautiful thing I've ever seen!! The sapphire in this laterally changes colour in different lights, I've never seen anything like it. I'm so unbelievably in love with it!

You have to know there's genuine emotion behind her excitement, especially given that she was the one to pick out her engagement ring. So while she probably had a hint or two that she'd be answering the big question soon (aside from the nervous vibes she was getting fro her partner that night), this sweet proposal definitely did not seem staged.

Really, the ring was every bit as magical as the moment -- and we simply can't stop swooning. These two are living proof that anything that's meant to be will be. So cheers to the newly engaged couple!

Kisses with my favorite person @sashafarber1 â�¤ï¸ï¿½
