Sorry folks, Maksim Chmerkovskiy is officially off the market.

Chmerkovskiy proposed to his former fellow “Dancing With the Stars” pro Peta Murgatroyd during a performance Saturday night at the Olympia Theater in Miami.

A member of the audience captured some video of the moment. Chmerkovskiy told his lady, “I’m in love with you, and I will be in love with you for the rest of my life.”

He later posted a picture on Instagram of himself down on one knee with the captions, “She said yes.”

The pair were first rumored to be a couple in 2012.

Murgatroyd posted a photo of the two of them kissing and her wearing what appears to be her new engagement ring with the caption, “I said yes!!!!!! You have my heart forever my love. Love always wins @maksimc.”

His brother, current “DWTS” pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy, expressed his delight on Instagram, saying, “I love the two of you with all my heart.”

Maksim Chmerkovskiy announced his retirement from “Dancing With the Stars” in 2014 following his first win. He and his partner, Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis, were awarded the mirror ball trophy that season.

He ended his engagement to fellow pro Karina Smirnoff in 2009.
