Congratulations are in order for Karina Smirnoff – and that’s just what she got from her Dancing with the Stars season 11 costars on Monday night.

The pro is recently engaged to her baseball player fiancé Brad Penny.

“Congratulations, Karina,” Mark Ballas told PEOPLE after performing double dances with partner Bristol Palin on Monday’s show. “We love you. I’m happy for you. I hope you make it to the aisle this time, baby.”

Other stars – like Kyle Massey and Margaret Cho – suggested ideas for the perfect engagement gift for Smirnoff, who was eliminated from the show along with partner Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino on Oct. 12.

“I’m going to get her The Situation’s new book,” Massey said.

“Maybe The Situation’s vodka – Devotion, I think it’s called,” Cho said. “It’s got protein in it.”

When it comes to these types of gifts, NFL star Kurt Warner suggested “something practical,” to which his partner Anna Trebunskaya added, “like a mixer.”
