Carrie Ann Inaba got more than she bargained for when she agreed to sub for Kelly Ripa on today's episode of 'Live With Regis and Kelly' -- 2.5 carats more, to be exact.

The 'Dancing With the Stars' judge was surprised on-air by her boyfriend of two years, Jesse Sloan, when he asked for her hand in marriage.

Earlier in the show, Inaba, 43, denied reports that she was engaged, showing off her bare ring finger to the audience.

In the show's final minutes, all of that changed. The lighting crew set the mood as violinists ushered in the would-be groom, who told told Inaba how beautiful and inspiring she was to him, finally working up the nerve to ask, "Will you marry me?"
