"It's so funny because I'm officially at the kids table," he told ET’s Cameron Mathison. "I'm at like the singles kids table. It's fine because I get the mac and cheese and pizza. You know they're putting a lot of pressure on me, especially my mom. Mom has been like. 'Well, it's your turn now.'"
When Cameron joked that "love is in the air" and that Val needs to step up his romance game, the 29-year-old dancer couldn't help but agree.
"I wish, man," he said. "I love to love. I just have to find somebody to love."
Peta, 29, was also at the rehearsal and chimed in, telling ET that she's on the lookout for a soulmate for her soon-to-be brother-in-law. "I'm searching," she explained. "I'm putting out fillers everywhere."
Val's not sure if he trusts Peta's matchmaking skills, as blind dates haven't been very successful for him in the past. "I have never hooked up with somebody and it working out," Val confessed. "Never. That whole blind date, friend of a friend thing never works out, and then I stop being friends with the friend. So it's always awkward."
Following Maksim's proposal to Peta on stage at the Sway: A Dance Trilogy show in Miami, Florida last weekend, Val took to Instagram to share a photo accompanied by a sweet congratulatory note to the couple.
"You have my brothers loyalty, heart, his one and only for the rest of his life," he wrote. "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," he continued.
On Saturday, ET caught up with the newly engaged couple at the Children's Miracle Network Winter Wonderland Ball at Avalon nightclub in Hollywood, California, where they couldn't stop gushing over the proposal and wedding plans.
Maksim, 35, told ET that no one knew of his proposal plans, not even his mom or dad!
"I have a big circle of people that I've accumulated over the years that are now her friends and her family, and if you say just the closest few, [that would be] like 50 people, so I decided not to say anything to anybody. No mom, no dad," he explained.
