The two have reportedly known each other for 15 years. They have been recently spending time together on tour and the betrothal came between DWTS gigs in Salt Lake City and Tulsa, Okla.

The announcement comes six months after Smirnoff and former partner Mario Lopez ended their two-year relationship.
