Carrie Ann Inaba was subbing for Kelly Ripa on Live! With Regis and Kelly when her boyfriend of two years, Jesse Sloan, popped the question to the Dancing with the Stars judge, 43, on March 31. After telling cohost Regis Philbin earlier in the show that stories of her being engaged weren’t true, the real thing happened when Sloan -- with the lights dimmed and violinists playing -- appeared and got down on one knee to present her with a 2½-carat, D-color, princess-cut diamond solitaire ring in platinum from Rafinity with the couple’s birthstones hidden inside, People.com reported. "I struggle to find the words to express what you mean to me," Sloan, 39, told Inaba. "You're an inspiration. You're everything to me. Will you marry me?" he asked. "Yes," she replied tearfully. "I will marry you."
