A former “Dancing With the Stars” duo is now engaged, as pro Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec of “Shark Tank” are planning to get hitched. Kym and Robert were partners in Season 20 last year and the sparks flew as soon as they first met. What’s the scoop on their engagement?
As People reported, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson got engaged recently and the “Shark Tank” star gave the “Dancing With the Stars” pro a 6.5-carat ring in the process. They had a fun party right after the engagement with friends, and both Kym’s mom was there from Australia and her former “DWTS” contestant Carson Kressley was there too.
Herjavec, 53, and Johnson, 39, first connected right about a year ago as they were partnered for Season 20 of “Dancing With the Stars.” They share that they developed a strong friendship first, but “DWTS” viewers knew that there was more than just friendship between the two.
As People broke the news, the former “Dancing With the Stars” duo shared the news with fans via Twitter. Herjavec teased that he asked Kym, with a link to the story, and she tweeted that she said yes. This will be Kym’s first marriage and Robert’s second.
