Penny, who is the starting pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, asked Smirnoff to marry him after a taping of Dancing With The Stars last month. "I was in the middle of the show and had no clue what was cooking behind my back," Smirnoff tells Us Weekly. "The dinner meeting was set up at a restaurant in Malibu. When [my manager and I] got there, it was completely empty. She excused herself to take a call and while I was sitting there alone, Brad came in."

"I had crazy hair and black lipstick on and was just concerned about looking like the Bride of Frankenstein," she continued. "Even after Brad got down to one knee and opened the box with the ring, it still didn't register." Karina added, "I'm the happiest I've ever been and Brad is the sole reason for that." Aww!
