Maksim Chmerkovskiy aka Mad Max of "Dancing with the Stars" has been tamed by love! The dancing pro dished to People magazine about his engagement to Karina Smirnoff...
Chmerkovskiy got down on one knee on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas and surprised his little lady with a three-karat Harry Winston platinum and diamond engagement ring tucked inside of a Louis Vuitton bag. Smirnoff says, "He is such a softie. The way he proposed was so romantic."
The two say they've known each other since their days as competitive ballroom dancers, but started dating just four months ago. Max told People, "I'm in love and so is she. Everything is beautiful."
