NEW YORK, April 2 (UPI) -- U.S. performer Carrie Ann Inaba of "Dancing with the Stars" says her fiance proposed to her on live television to share the event with their far-flung families.

Inaba was filling in for Kelly Ripa Thursday on "Live! With Regis and Kelly" when boyfriend Jesse Sloan appeared on the set with a diamond ring and popped the question on bended knee.
