Carrie Ann Inaba has ended her engagement to fiance Jesse Sloan, who proposed to her on "LIVE! With Regis and Kelly" in March 2011.

The "Dancing With The Stars" judge's rep confirmed the split to OnTheRedCarpet.com on September 10 and said in a statement, "They decided early in the summer to break off their engagement and have remained friends."

The 44-year-old host has been dating Sloan, 40, for over three years. In October, she told Access Hollywood that they had met on the online dating website eHarmony and were trying to have a baby while planning their wedding.

At the time, Inaba said she was having trouble planning the wedding.

"I don't want to plan. What do I do? The engagement was already publicized. I'm doing (the wedding) private. I want to do backyard and I want to do beach," Inaba said. "But if I go to Hawaii and do the beach, then I have to leave my cats, because you know I'm a crazy cat lady. We have four. We're going to get more."

"Dancing With The Stars" will return for its 15th season on September 24 on ABC.
