‘Dancing With The Stars’ Judge Carrie Ann Inaba Gets Engaged On ‘Live’

Written by Michael Lambarde on Apr. 01, 2011

Carrie Ann Inaba, who was filling in for Regis Philbin’s co-host Kelly Rippa this morning on Live! with Regis and Kelly was shocked on live television Thursday morning when her boyfriend, Jesse Sloan, of two years popped the most emotional question to her on Thursday.

Sloan came out to propose when Philbin and Inaba introduced a “viewer letter” where a “viewer” watching at home asked how the two would suggest that he proposed to his girlfriend. Sloan then came out on the stage, got on one knee and popped the question to the Dancing with the Stars judge during the middle of the show.

Philbin reacted by saying, “whoa” and Inaba was genuinely surprised on the show. After she recovered from shock, Inaba, of course, said “yes” to his proposal. She added, “I will marry you… You tricked me!” Inaba currently works as one of three judges on the long-running popular ABC reality series along with Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.
