"Dancing With The Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba agreed to stand in for Kelly Ripa on Thursday's episode of "Live With Regis and Kelly" and was surprised on-air by a proposal.

Inaba's boyfriend of two years, Jesse Sloan asked for the 43 year old's hand in marriage while Regis offered advice to a fake letter, asking how one should propose to their girlfriend.

As Regis answered, the lighting crew dimmed the lights and violinists began playing. Sloan told Inaba that she was an inspiration to him and finally proposed.

"Yes! I will marry you!" Inaba told her new fiance.

Earlier in the show, Inaba denied reports that she was engaged, showing the audience her bare ring finger. Jake Gyllenhaal, who was a guest on the show then appeared with a fake ring, attempting to woo the "DWTS" judge, but by the end of the show, there was a 2.5 carat Rafinity princess-cut ring on that finger.
