“Mr.& Mrs. Chmerkovskiy 04~ 13~ 2019, ” Johnson posted on Instagram Saturday.

In June, Chmerkovskiy proposed to Johnson in Venice, Italy, where he got down on one knee and popped the question with a diamond sparkler. Chmerkovskiy previously worked with Jacob Arabo of Jacob& Co to design Johnson’s rectangular cushion-cut diamond ring and secretly maintained it in his backpack during the journey so Johnson couldn’t find it.

As for his decision to propose in the Italian city, Chmerkovskiy told PEOPLE that he’s known since he was a teen that one day he would get down on one knee there.

“When I was 17, I visited Venice for the first time and thought it was the most romantic place in the world. I promised myself then that the next time I would come back to Venice was to propose to the woman I’d want to spend the rest of my life with, ” Chmerkovskiy told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Fifteen years later I kept my word. It was perfect.”

Chmerkovskiy added of Johnson, “My life has changed because of and I find myself to be the best version of myself that I’ve ever been. She’s awesome.”
