Dancing with the Stars has produced many couples over the past 24 seasons, and while some of them didn’t last, there have been many who’ve stayed together for the long haul! Among these few long lasting couples are Russian-born, Australian dancer Sasha Farber and British dance choreographer, Emma Slater. These two have been together for nearly six years and fans even got to watch them get engaged during a live episode of Dancing with the Stars! Although they haven’t set a date, a wedding is in their near future, so here’s a look at 8 things you didn’t know about Emma Slater and Sasha Farber’s relationship!

8. How Did They Meet?

Sasha and Emma met the same way many of the other Dancing with the Stars pros met — while working on the show Burn the Floor. They started dating in 2011, two years after they first met and one year after they were both cast on the popular dance competition show. Farber and Slater have now known each other for eight years and been together for nearly six years (not including their brief break up). According to Farber, he knew Slater was the one only “three or four months” after they first met.

7. The Proposal

Sasha Farber proposed to longtime girlfriend Emma Slater on October 4th, 2016 during an episode of Dancing with the Stars! The whole thing was totally emotional and touching as Tom Bergeron handed the show over to Farber and he said, “Babe, I’ve wanted to do this for such a long time. I love you so, so much.” He got down on one knee and, of course, she said yes! The big screen behind them quickly flashed, “She said yes!” and the whole audience erupted with joy. Farber said he came up with the idea of proposing on live television because it was the perfect way to share the moment with their families who couldn’t be there. “Her parents are away in England, my parents are in Australia, our families are all around the world and they’ll get to see this,” he said.
