carrie ann inaba engaged Carrie Ann Inaba shows off her (large) engagement ringCarrie Ann Inaba got engaged on national TV Thursday, and now having seen the ring fianc� Jesse Sloan gave her, we have to echo the sentiments of Regis Philbin: Whoa.

Sloan proposed to Inaba on Thursday’s (March 31) “Live with Regis and Kelly,” which the “Dancing With the Stars” judge was guest-hosting. Reege set the scene and looked over Inaba’s shoulder as Sloan took a knee and popped the question.

Inaba shared a picture of the ring on Twitter a little while after the show, and we’re suitably impressed, because it’s a big’un. According to Us Weekly, Sloan gave her a 2 1/2-carat princess-cut diamond, with his and her birthstones embedded in the platinum band. Well done, Mr. Sloan.

In case you missed it, here’s the video of Sloan’s “Live” proposal.
