She may not have won the Mirror Ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars last season…but things are going pretty great for Karina Smirnoff! Star can exclusively reveal that the pro dancer’s boyfriend, Jason Adelman, popped the question over the weekend.
“Karina is thrilled and the two couldn’t be more in love!” an insider reveals. “From the moment they met, Karina has been head over heels.”
Although the couple have been dating less than a year, it seems they just couldn’t wait to tie the knot — Jason got down on one knee Saturday night, in front of friends and family, and they celebrated afterward by dancing together. Later, Jason updated his Facebook page with a new photo of the pair, and his friends confirmed the engagement by leaving congratulatory messages.
Back in 2009, Karina was engaged to fellow Dancing With the Stars pro, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and she also accepted a proposal from baseball player, Brad Penny, in 2011. But, a source explains, “Karina is sure that Jason is the one. He treats her like a queen and is ecstatic that she said yes.”
And with a whirlwind engagement will likely come a fast wedding! In fact, the insider reveals that we can expect these two to tie the knot before the end of the year. “Karina wants to get married as soon as possible and definitely wants it to be a big event,” the pal confirms. “She already has visions of exactly what she wants.”
