The dance pro is set to wed girlfriend BC Jean
Another Dancing with the Stars wedding is on the horizon!
Dance pro Mark Ballas is engaged to girlfriend and bandmate BC Jean (née Brittney Jean Carlson), PEOPLE has confirmed.
Ballas, 29, originally told the happy news to Access Hollywood, describing how he took inspiration for the romantic proposal – which happened the day before Thanksgiving! – from one of their band’s songs, “Roses and Violets.”
Ballas said he lined the driveway of their Los Angeles home with roses and violets (which took him “forever” to get since they were out of season), and decorated the inside of the house in a Woodstock theme, outfitted in vintage rugs and “posters of all her favorite bands everywhere.”
The dance pro then used the fact that their home was under construction to lure her over: “Our manager for our group called and said, ‘Look, there’s been a bit of a thing at the house, you need to go confirm something. Mark can’t get over there.’ She said, ‘Yeah, no problem,'” Ballas explained.
“When she got in there I froze. My heart was pounding. I was cool as a cucumber all day. I’ve been on stages my whole life, and when she walked in the room I was thought, ‘Whoa, here we go.’ So we kind of just held each other for a minute, and then I did the [one-knee] drop, I popped the question, she said yes. Everything went to plan and the way the house was decorated – it was just absolutely incredible.”
Friends and family of the couple were also on site to congratulate them and celebrate the happy day.
“All our best friends [and] family – they were all hiding upstairs in our bedroom and she had no idea,” Mark said. “It was absolutely perfect.”
The two-time Mirrorball champion has been dating BC Jean, 28, since 2012. The couple formed their own group, Alexander Jean, and recently performed at the Viper Room in Los Angeles.

Ballas isn’t the only member of the Dancing with the Stars family that is getting hitched. Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently popped the question to fellow pro Peta Murgatroyd during the Dec. 5 performance of Sway: A Dance Trilogy in Miami.
