"So... can you guess what my big announcement is?" Danica wrote when posting the news — and the ring photo shown below — on Facebook. "Yes, my amazing boyfriend Scott and I are engaged! (This is the guy that Valentin Chmerkovskiy did a shout-out to on Dancing with the Stars!) I'm wishing all of you the happiness and joy that I feel right now!"
The 39-year-old actress and math book author has son, Draco, nearly 4, from her first marriage to Mike Verta. They were together from 2009 to 2012.
Just yesterday, Good Morning America posted a story featuring a Wonder Years reunion, including Danica, to celebrate the show's DVD being available for pre-order. Also yesterday, Danica posted a pic catching up with one of her Season 18 buddies, pro Sharna Burgess. Last week, Danica meet up with Val's previous celeb partner, Elizabeth Berkley, and shared a pic. "Playdate with @elizberkley and our toddlers...," Danica wrote, "and not talking about @iamvalc at all. Nope, not one bit. ;) xo." And not too long before that she shared a pic with her fellow Season 18 alum (and nostalgia TV star) Candace Cameron Bure, writing, "With @candacecbure watching @MarkBallas kick a** singing on stage! #longliveDWTS19 :)"
Danica is definitely invested in the DWTS family, which is just how we like it! And since Scott will be part of her family, he's pretty much part of ours too. Take good care of Winnie, buddy — or Kevin Arnold (and Val) will come after you!
