Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson: Engaged!

It’s been, what, a good 16 months since Val Chmerkovskiy and Amber Rose broke up? A lot has changed since then.

Valentin has been dating Jenna Johnson, and this Dancing with the Stars power couple has not been shy about how much they love each other.

But now, they’ve made it official — because Val got down on one knee and proposed! Yes, there are pictures.

Jenna Johnson was overwhelmed with joy by Val’s proposal.

She shared the sweet images of that beautiful moment (which we have for you below), captioning them on Instagram.

“I knew the moment I met you,” Jenna writes. “You were the man of my dreams and I wanted to be with you forever.”

That is so beautiful! And, of course, so rare for someone to be right!

“Babychka Мой любовь,” she writes. “Thank you for making my fairytale come true today!”

Note that the part of her caption that is clearly in Cyrillic script — and, you know, Russian — just means “my love.” But context made that pretty clear, anyway.

“Cannot believe I get to call you my FIANCE!!!!” She concludes, ending her post with the tag: “#engaged”

(Take a moment to appreciate how happy she looks!)

Val Chmerkovskiy shared the same sweet photos that Jenna did.

He kept his caption more succinct — short and sweet and to the point.

“I can’t wait to make you my wife,” he wrote.

He followed that line with a tasteful black heart emoji and a golden crown emoji.

(She said yes, folks)

You may have recognized the architecture behind them and figured out that they were in Italy for this photo.

Italy is a favored destination for romantic trips, engagements, and even weddings.

If you didn’t pick up on their location from this photo, that’s okay. Earlier pics that the two have shared make their location a bit more obvious.

They’ve even shared pics from Venice, showing its legendary (but sadly filthy) canals.

Remember, these two have been sparking romance rumors since all the way back in early 2016.

So when Jenna says that she knew that she wanted Val from the moment she laid eyes upon him, it’s not difficult to believe.

When rumors swirled of their relationship last year, they seemed to confirm it by locking lips in an on-screen kiss on Dancing with the Stars.

Fans, who have watched their love blossom on social media, were overjoyed at the news.

They took to the comments, mostly to write variations of “congratulations!”

“I was waiting for this to happen!” one fan posts.

Another writes to Jenna: “you are having the best year!!! congratulations,” surrounding their words with emotional emojis.

“Yaaaaaaaaassssssss!!!!!” another says, summing up their enthusiasmin a single word.

Our heartfelt congratulations go out to Jenna Johnson and Val Chmerkovskiy.

They’re clearly crazy about each other and they deserve this happiness.

Plenty of people are going to be envious of one or both of them, and that’s honestly pretty normal. They’re both gorgeous, talented, and famous.

We hope that these two incredible dancers enjoy their engagement, whether it turns out to be a lengthy or short one.

Love is amazing.


Dwayne Johnson Feeds His Girlfriend While She Breastfeeds Their Baby

In April, Lauren Hashian gave birth to Dwayne Johnson’s third daughter.

Now that little “pebble,” Tiana Gia, is nearly two months old. Johnson shared a photo of Hashian breastfeeding the precious baby.

But it’s what Johnson himself is doing in the photo that is really getting attention.

Johnson captions the photo that you’re about to see with: “I’ll handle this business.”

The image depicts him feeding his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, while she cradles their two-month-old daughter, Tiana Gia, breastfeeding her.

“Mama @laurenhashianofficial has her hands full nursing/feeding Baby Tia,” Johnson explains. “So I’m feedin’ mama her dinner.”

He continues, stating that to do so is: “my pleasure.”

Johnson says that he has “so much respect to her and all mamas out there holding it down and running things.”

“Just landed,” he says, adding: “And good to get all my girl’s settled in.”

Awwww! This is such a wholesome family photo.

Johnson’s captions aren’t done.

Now, I gotta go satisfy my own appetite,” he announces. “Iron Paradise, here I come.”

He tags: “#EveryoneGetsFed” 

Apolgetically, he adds: “#DaddysGottaGoToWork”

#ChivalryIsToughOnTheKnees,” he admits.

While some might argue that what he was doing deserves a better label than chivalrous, knees grow much less tolerating over time.

This was a cute family photo.

The post received over 5 million likes in the first 24 hours alone.

But why, you wonder, are so many people talking about it? 

One might be tempted to say that this is because Hashian is breastfeeding their daughter, but she’s covered and angled in such a way that no part of her breast is exposed.

(Which is fine — women’s liberation is about showing or concealing as much as you like, not about just shedding clothing no matter your comfort level)

No, what makes this picture so beautiful has less to do with the breastfeeding and more to do with Johnson’s actions.

Even with his busy schedule, he continues to play an active role in his family.

He can’t nurse Tiana himself, but he can certainly be involved. And that’s beautiful.

Last month, Dwayne Johnson penned a beautiful Mother’s Day tribute to Lauren Hashian.

In it, he praised her virtues as a mother, but also as a human being.

She takes on tremendous responsibilities when it comes to his life and the life of their family, from working out the logistics of uprooting their lives to travel with him while he films to taking on added parenting duties to compensate for his work schedule.

He has also praised each of his daughters, lauding them as “strong women” from the moments of their respective births.

Johnson is the sort of high-energy man who cannot contain his excitement about the women he lives — and he would never try to hide that.

Johnson has a tendency to be straightforward with his fans.

Earlier this year, he revealed his depression battle and even his mother’s suicide attempt.

Of course, he has also shared — or potentially overshared — about much lighter subjects.

When DJ Khaled shared that he is what some would call a pillow princess, he got roasted by everyone. Johnson was loud and proud about how enthusiastic he is about performing oral sex.

You know what? We think that by modeling good behavior for his fans and followers, he’s making the world a better place.

Also, he’s just a great dude.
