right now check out our friends, Maks and PETA. There they are on the cover of "People" after he popped the question. She makes me a better man and that was the crowning moment of a lovely romance. ? PETA and Maks top pros on "Dancing with the stars." Meryl and Maks. Both mirror ball champions. And now they may have everything in common. The dancing duo engaged. With a showstopping proposal. It has been an intense romance. Their first meeting on Broadway in 2009 then began dating in 2012 until their relationship ended suddenly after less than a year together. But that was not their final dance. Maks and PETA reunited in October 2014. They've been together ever since proving one more time it takes two to tango. And there they are right now. Laughing at themselves or laughing at us, one or the other. So, Maks, that proposal was really something. How hard was it to keep it a secret? That was very hard. It was very hard and I'm never going to do it again because even if that -- Well, that's good news. Half my -- well, yeah. Yeah. But half my family found a way to get upset with me not telling them. I'm like that was the whole point of secrets. You can never win. So you fooled your family but PETA, were you fooled? I was, yeah, I completely didn't know what was going on until the last second. I could just see some family members kind of filing towards the front of the stage and some of my friends wouldn't look me in the eye and I was like, what's going on and then it happened and my stomach just dropped and completely shocked and scared and afraid of everything. So as you saw family walking up to the stage, though, was there just a glimpse of a moment? Did you have -- did you go, oh, my gosh, maybe this is happening. I did have a maybe this is happening and I shot it down. I thought, PETA, that's not happening. You have to show us the ring. We heard it took five weeks. Maks designed it. I love it. Close up there. Wow! You don't need a close-up, George. Maks, you're a man of many talents. That's gorgeous. I can't take credit for this. My guys did an amazing job and, you know, it was an awesome process. Like honestly the whole thing was very enjoyable. You know, it wasn't stressful. I said stuff off the cuff as I usually do and for once, there was no controversy so everything worked out. Fantastic. Sweet and nice. This is a loaded question but who -- have you thought about what you'll do for your first dance? We've -- not really but we've been asked that a lot. Oh, you have. We just want to keep that really simple and nothing too crazy. I'm just going on record. This is the biggest record I can go on in saying that I have zero to do with planning anything for the rest of our life together. You are a wise man. Just show up where I'm told. Very smart. Hey. You've learned all the right lines for all of us married men right there. You're absolutely right but what was the moment you knew? I don't know. I don't know. I think -- I think we knew for a while. I think I personally knew when we got back together, you know, this was for a reason that's not just, oh, we missed each other but I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her and, you know, I think every day since then we just got better and stronger and happier and -- I don't know. She makes me a bet are man. I'm not sure who makes you a better person. Don't take it back. Right, I mean you had so many points for that line. Take it from the political grew rue, don't take that back. I think -- I think this is the whole life. For me this is the whole point is that you just get smarter. You say things and much for concise sentences and straight to the point and any chance you get to earn some points, you take the chance. That's for sure. I agree. Maks, PETA, thank you guys. Great to see you so happy. Congratulations. Thank you so much. You can catch PETA on "Dancing with the stars" live tour going on right now.
