(NEW YORK ) -- Carrie Ann Inaba has a new dance partner for life. The Dancing with the Stars judge got engaged while guest hosting Live! with Regis and Kelly Thursday morning. At the end of the episode, her boyfriend of two years, Jesse Sloan, walked onto the set while the lights dimmed and violinists began to play. The 39-year-old Sloan popped the question and the 43-year-old Inaba, tearing up, happily accepted.
The timing of the proposal was rather ironic, since earlier in the episode, Inaba told Regis Philbin there was no truth to rumors she was engaged.
