Fans encourage 'Dancing with the Stars' winner Derek Hough to propose to his long-term girlfriend after he posted a romantic tribute for her on Valentine's day.

Derek Hough and his girlfriend, Hayley Erbert, are considered one of the dance world's favorite couple, so it is only natural that after Val Chmerkovskiy and Julianne Hough got hitched, that fans are waiting for another wedding from their "Dancing with the Stars" castmates.

Derek might not be rushing down the aisle anytime soon, but he is certainly keeping the love alive in his relationship with a sweet Valentine's day tribute. 


In the Instagram post, he wished his "sleepy woman" a happy "love day," in which the two struck the sweetest pose while kissing on a mountain top.

Derek and Hayley are used to traveling to all parts of the world, from Europe to Asia. However, for their "love day" post, the couple kept it local and shared an old picture of them spending time in the mountains of Moab, Utah. The adorable picture had one fan pushing him to pop the question to Hayley.

It is reported, they started dating in 2015 shortly after meeting on "Dancing with the Stars," where they performed together to Ed Sheeran's song, "Thinking out Loud." Tired of seeing all the picture-perfect moments without a ring insight, one fan said:

"Uuugh, so tired of waiting for the engagement pics, ask her already."


Showing his love for all the special moments they have captured in pictures, Derek couldn't keep his Valentine's day present to himself. Showing it off to his followers, he shared:

"Obviously this is a personal gift but it's just too creative not to share. These are the gifts that you know took a lot of time and effort to make. Which makes it feel even more special."


With all the questions concerning his future with his girlfriend, Derek told ET in 2018 that he wants to prepare for marriage, he explained:

"Do I feel pressured getting married? No, you know what, I don't, actually. I'm building a house right now. I feel like I've been building it for 25 years now. It's taken a long time.

With marriage on the horizon for Derek, his sister Julianne is having less luck in her marriage with Brooks Laich. 

Reports have been speculating that the couple has been dealt with a bit of a rough patch in their relationship, and are on the verge of divorce. However, they are trying to work through their issues.
