Val Chmerkovskiy Asked Jenna Johnson's Dad For Her Hand in Marriage

Val Chmerkovskiy went all traditional with his proposal to longtime love Jenna Johnson.

Speaking with ET, the adorable couple opened up about their recent engagement which happened during a spontaneous moment in Venice, Italy during a getaway.

“I asked her father, obviously that was a huge thing,” Val revealed “With our tour we were in Utah probably beginning of May and so it was a month before I proposed. So about a month, a little more than that.”

“I was shocked because I’m very traditional and so he knew that talking to my dad was really important and he was very adamant about doing it in person,” she added. “And so the first thing I actually said to him was, ‘Did you ask my dad?’ And he was like, ‘Yes, of course!’”

As for their actual wedding plans, Val and Jenna are considering a very small wedding, or just eloping altogether.

“I just want to put it out there right now for all my friends. ‘You’re not invited. You’re not invited and don’t take it personally,’” Val says, joking. “We’ve been talking budgets. We’ve been talking 2018. We’re talking like, I celebrate you every day. Why do we need to pay extra for another meal?”

Jenna added, “At this point I would love to elope because wedding planning is stressful.”

Val Chmerkovskiy Was Really Adam & Jenna's Biggest Fan

Adam Rippon and Jenna Johnson stole our hearts on the all athletes season of Dancing With The Stars.

But even we weren’t as big of fans of the duo as Jenna‘s boyfriend Val Chmerkovskiy. Even though he was on tour most of the season, he was sure to give Adam some advice.

Val was so helpful. He was like, ‘Go out there. You never want to look back at your videos and be like, ‘I could have been just a little bit more. I could have given a little bit more,” Adam told Us Weekly. “It was advice that I took with me all throughout the whole competition. I can tell he loves Jenna so much. And I felt that he wanted it for Jenna so badly and that he was going to help me in any way that he could. I’m so grateful.”
