An engagement may soon be in Dancing with the Stars couple Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson‘s future.

Chmerkovskiy, 32, sweetly responded to a tweet about his girlfriend and fellow DWTS pro Johnson, 24, on Tuesday evennig.

“Jenna Johnson though,” a Johnson fan account tweeted alongside a gif of the dancer wearing a red and bedazzled costume and a heart eyes and fire emoji.

In response, Chmerkovskiy tweeted, “I should def put a ring on it,” and added three emojis: eyes, heart eyes and a crown.

His tweet came the same day Johnson joked to Entertainment Tonight — which first spotted Chmerkovskiy’s tweet — about a proposal.

“Time’s a-ticking!” she said. “We’ll see [if engagement is in the cards anytime soon]. We both have very big things happening right now, so we’ll let that ride over … maybe we’ll go to Fiji!”

The couple has been dating off and on for over two years, but their romance has taken a more serious turn in recent months.

In December, Chmerkovskiy told PEOPLE he developed a case of baby fever after his brother Maks welcomed a son, Shai Aleksander, with Peta Murgatroyd in January 2017.

“Unfortunately, she doesn’t,” he joked of Johnson. “No she does, she does. I think she would love to be a mother, but she also has so many incredible things going on in her life and I would feel very selfish to interrupt them for nine months.”

“Definitely soon,” he said of his hopes of starting a family. “Hopefully, right?”

In March, he admitted to Entertainment Tonight that “it’s hard” to watch Johnson hit the ballroom floor with other men. “The type of person I am, I mean, I’m fairly jealous. I mean, look, I have all these emotions, you know.”

“I’m not perfect,” he continued. “But I have to check myself and be fair and say, like … how can I hold this against her if I’m in the same situation? And I would never want to compromise my artistry, you know, because I wouldn’t want to make my significant other feel uncomfortable.”

“This is part of the new chapter in my life,” he added. “It takes some sacrifice to have a healthy relationship. And, you know, you gotta be willing to make those sacrifices and I’m definitely willing to make certain sacrifices to make it work.”
