Dancing With The Stars Pro Brandon Armstrong Is Engaged To Brylee Ivers

Season 30 of Dancing With the Stars was incredible. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore entered the ballroom ready to slay. Kenya was insanely competitive, but she had no prior dance experience. She was paired with DWTS pro Brandon Armstrong.

Twirl asked Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne for some tips. Erika was part of the cast on Season 24 and her partner was Gleb Savchenko. Sadly, Twirl and Brandon were sent home during the Halloween show when their Argentine tango failed to impress.

According to Meaww.com, Brandon joined DWTS during Season 24 as a troupe member. He was promoted to the role of dance pro on Season 27.

People reported that Brandon popped the question to girlfriend Brylee Ivers on March 7, 2022 in Utah. The couple met on Instagram and began seeing each other early in 2021. “I downloaded an app that’s similar to Tinder but for our Church to be funny. I was scrolling through and saw her, but I was too embarrassed to message her,” Brandon admitted. “So, I DM’ed her on Instagram instead and she ghosted me.”

“I was trying to be cool,” Brylee said. For a month the duo exchanged messages, then finally had their first date at The Cheesecake Factory. Excellent choice. “I was nervous. But I just remember was how easy the conversation was,” the pro dancer stated.

Brandon, who is currently finishing the final part of The Dancing with the Stars: Live! Tour, was planning the proposal “for a couple months.”

Brylee is big on memories. So, I was thinking, what if I made a movie trailer that she could keep forever?” Brandon commented. “One of the first times we had a deep conversation was outside a movie theater.” Brylee said, “It was the first time he told me he loved me.” This sounds like the sweetest proposal ever.

“I wasn’t nervous about anything except her thinking it was incredible. I wanted it to be perfect, as representative of what we’ve done so far, everything we stand for,” Brandon explained. “I wanted it to be big and bright. But I’m not a good talker and crier. I started crying when the trailer came out and I knew I was screwed.”

He continued, “All of our best friends and family were there, and I walked her down to the front, told her I loved her and can’t wait to start a family with her. I’m just so excited for our future together!”

Brylee loves her 3.5 carat circle diamond ring with a diamond and gold band. “It’s perfect,” Brylee said of her new rock.

Brandon and Brylee are keeping their wedding details under wraps, but they can’t wait to celebrate with their family and close friends. “We just want to celebrate something that’s positive and happy. We want it to be classic and timeless,” Brandon remarked.

So, what is the happy couple most looking forward to? Brandon stated, “We’re excited to start a family. Just being able to have a life partner is something I look forward to. My focus is Brylee,” he added.

Brandon shared a photo from the proposal on Instagram with the caption, “I made a good decision a while back to ask you on a date…made the BEST decision of my life asking you to be my wife last night! I love you forever bry!”

Brandon’s DWTS family showered the couple with love in the comments. Sasha Farber wrote, “Yesssssss congratulations to you both.”

Sharna Burgess  commented, “AHHHHHHHHHHHH!! I love this.” Peta Murgatroyd wrote, “this makes me very happy! Congrats babe! Can’t wait to meet Bry!” And Alan Bersten posted, “Let’s fricken go!!!!!”

Best wishes to Brylee and Brandon!
