Brad Penny's wife Karina Smirnoff

UPDATE: 10/18/2011: Ah, the ol' conflicting schedules....
Brad Penny and Karina Smirnoff have 'postponed' their pending wedding, according to sources speaking to People and Us Weekly. The couple was scheduled to be married January 21, 2012, but based on their current position at the top of the Dancing With The Stars leaderboard, it's likely that Karina could be dancing late into 2011 in her pursuit of the mirror trophy. Penny just wrapped up his 2011 season with the Detroit Tigers, falling in game 6 of the ALCS to the Texas Rangers.
Karina tells People Magazine that planning a wedding is simply not possible while competing on DWTS, and she wants to take her time and enjoy both experiences.
Karina's dance partner, JR Martinez offers his help, saying "I want to be one of the bridesmaids."

The two have been dating since 2009 after being introduced by mutual friend, Chuck Liddell. They got engaged on October 4, 2010 (the day after Brad Penny and the Cardinals wrapped up their 2010 season).

Karina is best known as one of the professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars (or in her case this year, Dancing with The Situation, which is not the same as Dancing with a Star). The repeated World Champion Ballroom dancer has also been paired with "stars," Mario Lopez, Billy Ray Cyrus, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Mario, Rocco DiSpirito, Steve Wozniak, and Aaron Carter in seasons past.
