Peta Murgatroyd's close friend Rumer Willis, winner of last season's mirror ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars, shared her excitement for the happy couple.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy's brother Val was Rumer Willis's partner on DWTS. He shared his congrats to his brother and fiancee via social media, too.

"I love the two of you with all my heart. you have my brothers loyalty, heart. his one and only for the rest of his life. you're family now and that makes you my sister, the second most important woman in my life. what's mine is yours. Forever and always. Petachka your team got numbers now ??? #trapqueenfolife #famovereverything @petamurgatroyd @maksimc," he wrote on the photo Maksim Chmerkovskiy posted to announce the engagement.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy told Us Weekly he has known he wanted to marry Peta Murgatroyd for a very long time.

“I kind of knew a couple of years ago,” he said immediately following his proposal. “But it’s a process. With this family, the hardest part of the process was to keep it a secret...this was definitely the best decision I ever made.”

Now that one of the Chmerkovskiy brothers is off the market, how much longer might it be before Val finds himself a wife, too?

Congratulations are likely making the rounds to Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd from family members, friends, and fans from all over the globe.
