“Dancing With the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba tells Access Hollywood she met her fiance Jesse Sloan in an unusual way – on eHarmony.com. The 43-year-old Inaba says that she had been dating all these younger guys and it was time for a change.
“[Jesse] was the one [eHarmony] sent me. It just felt familiar,” says Carrie Ann. “In his picture, I felt like I already knew him. He took a risk because he didn’t know what I looked like or anything.”
The reason he didn’t know what Carrie Ann looked like is because her profile didn’t feature a picture or her name, which is understandable since she’s a famous face. But eventually she decided to reveal her identity.
“A few months later, I finally sent a picture. [It was] me in Hawaii with no makeup. We finally went out [on] a supervised date. We went over to my friend’s house. It was awesome!” says Carrie Ann.
The pair have been engaged since March, but wedding bells are not ringing just yet. Carrie Ann says there’s no hurry and in fact, they are trying for a baby instead.
“Trying for a baby, absolutely. Whichever comes first is fine. We don’t have to be married to have the baby. My age at 43, I have to get moving on the baby. The wedding can come later,” says Carrie Ann.
Good for Carrie Ann for admitting she used eHarmony. Online dating is becoming increasingly popular and we don’t think people who use it have anything to be embarrassed about.
