Carrie Ann Inaba’s man put a ring on it! The Dancing With the Stars judge got the shock of a lifetime last week when her boyfriend got on bended knee to propose live on the air while she was guest co-hosting LIVE! With Regis and Kelly. Of course she accepted with an emphatic “Yes!” While filling in for the vacationing Kelly Ripa, Regis launched the surprise by reading a “viewer” letter looking to propose to his girlfriend of two years, but unsure of just how to go about it. Who was that viewer? Carrie Ann’s beau, Jesse Sloan, who came out from backstage carrying a 2 1/2 carat diamond stunner to seal the deal. Jewelry experts say that the ring features a dazzling princess cut and a solitaire center diamond – with both Carrie Ann and her fiance’s birthstones hidden inside the ring’s platinum band. Estimated price tag? $70,000. Later on the show, LIVE! guests Jake Gyllenhaal and Howie Mandel joined the happy couple for a champagne toast.
Just last month she gushed to Prevention magazine that after two years of dating, she and Jesse were talking about a summer wedding on the beach. “We want everyone to jump in the water with us after our vows!” Speaking of dazzling, she’s just that in these glam oversized Marc by Marc Jacobs shades, available in five frame/lens color combos. –rpuccia
