Dancer Karina Smirnoff may have been recently booted off of Dancing with the Stars (along with partner, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino), but it looks the pro might have another reason to kick up her feet.

"I'm marrying a Southern gentleman," said Karina, who previously dated her season 3 dance partner Mario Lopez for 2 years before splitting and hooking up with fellow dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
As far as why the couple decided to wait a month to reveal their happy news:
"We kept it quiet because my family is in New York and Brad's family is in Oklahoma, so we kind of wanted them to come out and celebrate and be a family first, before we let the cat out of the bag."
(Whether that celebrating was done with vodka is unknown, since no one seems to know if Karina is, in fact, related to the vodka Smirnoffs.)
