Carrie Ann Inaba gets engaged on ‘Regis and Kelly’

“Dancing With the Stars”judge Carrie Ann Inaba got engaged on today’s “Liv

e With Regis and Kelly.” Her boyfriend of two years, accountant Jesse Sloan, walked onto the set and proposed during the show.

Inaba was subbing in as co-host for the vacationing Kelly Ripa. The subject of her potential engagement was a recurring joke during the show — guest Jake Gyllenhaal fake-proposed earlier in the hour. But at the end of the broadcast, Sloan finally came out and did the down-on-one-knee thing.

It’s every girl’s dream come true, really: to receive a marriage proposal while Regis Philbin is leering over your shoulder and saying “Woah” when he sees the ring.

It seems as though Inaba may have had some inkling that this was coming, but nevertheless, a sweet little story. Congratulations to the happy couple. Watch video of the proposal after the jump.
