ETonline EXCLUSIVE: 'DWTS' Pros Sasha Farber and Emma Slater Dish on Epic Live Proposal:
Tuesday's Dancing With the Stars results show was especially magical for pro dancers Sasha Farber and Emma Slater, who got engaged after Farber popped the question in front of the audience on live TV.
While the moment couldn't have gone any smoother, that didn't mean Farber wasn't nervous about the public proposal.
"I was dying, I'm not gonna lie," the 33-year-old Australian dancer told ET's Angelique Jackson backstage after the show. "Usually I'm like, running around and having fun backstage but I was just in the corner [before proposing]."
“I touched my hands and they were sweating, and I was like, 'Oh my god, I've still got to do this dance. And then I've got this in my pocket, what if it falls out?'" he added. "I didn't know what to expect."
The sweet moment came just after Farber and Slater, who have been dating for over five years, finished a passionate contemporary dance routine as the show came back from a commercial break. However, Slater said she had a feeling something was about to happen before Farber even opened his mouth.
"As soon as [our dance] was over, I felt his energy get even worse, like even more nervous than when we danced, and I thought that was really strange." Slater, 27, explained to ET. "I turned to Sasha and he turned to me, and I was like, 'Ahh!' He didn't even say one word and I think I started to hyperventilate and do all that really like, ugly crying stuff, which I'm sure I'm going to regret, but it was the best day of my life!"
