Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are all smiles as they arrive at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ Winter Wonderland Ball held at Avalon on Saturday night (December 12) in Hollywood, Calif.
The newly engaged couple joined Amy Purdy at the event, which supports the “Band Together For Kids” holiday campaign that brings attention to the importance of urgently needed donations to children’s hospitals.
“I have a big circle of people that I’ve accumulated over the years that are now her friends and her family, and if you say just the closest few, [that would be] like 50 people, so I decided not to say anything to anybody. No mom, no dad,” Maks confessed about not telling anyone what he was doing — except for brother Val.
Val added, “I found out [Maks was proposing] a half an hour before he did that. During intermission of our show [Sway A Dance Trilogy], he started showing me the ring, and I bugged out.”
FYI: Peta wore Hayley Paige.
