"Dancing with the Stars"’s Karina Smirnoff is back on her feet again as far as finding her true soul mate is concerned.

The 32-year-old dancing queen is now engaged to major league baseball pitcher Brad Penny, Smirnoff told People magazine yesterday.

In actuality, the couple was engaged as far back as early October. "We kept it quiet because my family is in New York and Brad's family is in Oklahoma so we kind of wanted them to come out and celebrate and be a family first before we let the cat out of the bag," Smirnoff said.

Smirnoff held a 4.5-carat Asscher Cut diamond engagement ring at an anniversary party for Tao Las Vegas.

According to People, Smirnoff and Penny started dating in October of last year. The two met through their pal, UFC warrior Chuck Liddell. Smirnoff was previously engaged to "Dancing with the Stars" colleague Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

“I’m marrying a Southern gentlemen,” Smirnoff said about Penny.
