"Dancing with the Stars'" Cheryl Burke Is Engaged to Matthew Lawrence: "Here Comes the Bride"
The dancer revealed the happy news on Instagram on Thursday night.
Congratulations are in order for Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence!
Set against the light of the sunset, Burke covered half of her face with her ring finger as Lawrence kissed her on the cheek. The proposal comes on her 34th birthday.
The dancer shared several photos of herself with Lawrence, her happiness showing through in each one as she continued to give a close-up view of her diamond engagement ring.
The actor is best known for his roles in Boy Meets World, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Brotherly Love.
Before Lawrence proposed, Burke was excited to share her birthday celebrations on her Instagram Story, including a Cuisinart which she received as an early birthday gift.
They initially met in 2006 through Joey Lawrence, Matthew's brother and a contestant on the third season of DWTS. The couple first started dating in February 2007 and were in a year-long relationship before calling it quits in February 2008.
"When we first dated, we were both young and immature, and I was so new to this world," she said of why the relationship didn't work the first time around. "Now we are both adults and feel balanced."
"He's such a great guy. He's so normal, considering we're in this crazy business," she said of Lawrence. "It's so nice to be able to come home to him and turn Netflix on and order Postmates. He's someone I definitely do see spending the rest of my life with."
The happy news comes after a sad time for the dancer with her father, Stephen Louis Burke, passing away in March.
Burke stepped away from social media following the news of his death but shared a touching Instagram tribute on him later on.
"Dad, if I had one more chance to have you here with me today, I would do things differently," she captioned the sweet shot on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. "Every day I would tell you how much I love you. I miss you so much already."
