Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence are engaged!

The Dancing With the Stars pro celebrated her 34th birthday on Thursday and got one of the sweetest gifts from Lawrence, who popped the question with a gorgeous ring.

Burke took to Instagram on Thursday to announce the news with a super cute snapshot of her new sparkler.

"OMG! So far so good for 34!" Burke wrote, alongside an engagement ring emoji. "#amilliontimesyes #imengaged."

In the slideshow of beautiful photos, all lit by the setting sun, Burke is seen excitedly covering her mouth in shocked excitement with her ring hand, while Lawrence plants a sweet kiss on her cheek. She also shared additional photos showing her new ring in even closer detail.

A rep for Burke tells ET that the dancer "was totally surprised" by the proposal. "The diamond has special meaning, as it’s the same diamond that Cheryl’s late father, Steve Burke, gave to her mother," the rep shared. "Matthew, with the help of his mother Donna, Cheryl’s mother Sherri and XIV Karats in Beverly Hills had the stone reset and added more diamonds to create the ring he proposed to Cheryl with."

ET has learned that the ring is a two-carat diamond set in 18kt white gold.

Designer Caryn Alpert from XIV told ET that Lawrence “wanted the ring to be classy, elegant and magnificent, just like Cheryl,” and added a personal touch to the ring, inscribing a message on the inside for his bride-to-be.


“After looking through many different silhouettes, he selected the perfect 18kt white gold double halo ring on a single band because it echoed the sentimentality of their connection,” Alpert added. “Two lives becoming one with a forever family heirloom at the core being encircled and protected by two beautiful halos."

Congrats to the happy couple!

While the pair had previously dated for two years, from 2006 to 2008, they recently rekindled their romance last year.

The couple made their first public appearance since reigniting their romance at the 25th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, last month, where they stopped to chat with ET about how happy they were about being together again.

"It's really great because we are happy, which is such a refreshing thing in a relationship, you know, just for it to be great and everybody be happy," Burke shared.
