Karina Smirnoff & Brad PennyWith her exotic good looks and busy lifestyle as a successful professional dancer on 'Dancing With the Stars,' it's no surprise Karina Smirnoff has found true love.

Earlier this month, the Ukrainian-born Smirnoff announced her engagement to St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Brad Penny.

"Karina fell in love with Brad because he treats her like a lady, likes to laugh and even with a middle American, down-to-earth manner, he has seen the world through sports," a source close to Smirnoff tells PopEater. "He is different from other guys she has dated."
