Congrats! Cheryl Burke has found her Maid of Honor and it’s none other than her good friend and longtime confidant Leah Remini. On Sunday, Sept. 9, the Dancing With the Stars pro dancer announced the exciting news by posting a selfie of herself, Leah, and her fiancé, Matthew Lawrence, on Instagram.
“She said yes! #MaidOfHonor. So excited to have you be part of such a special time in our lives, @LeahRemini! We’ll be rooting for you at the #Emmys tonight❤,” she captioned the pic of them all smiling.
In early May, Cheryl, 34, and Matthew, 38, got engaged on her birthday and almost immediately after she said yes, Cheryl posted a photo on Instagram to show off her ring. “OMG! So far so good for 34! ?#AMillionTimesYes #ImEngaged #HereComesTheBride,” she wrote alongside the cute snaps of her fiancé giving her a huge kiss on the cheek.
Cheryl is so excited to start her new life with Matthew that she also can’t wait to have kids. In a previous interview with Us Weekly, she opened up about the possibility of soon starting a family with her hubby-to-be.
“I’m not getting any younger. We want kids and all of that, so we’ll see what happens,” she gushed. “We’re going to try maybe for three, but I think right now one healthy one would be great.”
“We really want to do it right. We want to do the steps of being engaged, moving in together, getting married, and having kids,” Cheryl added. “I see Maks [Chmerkovskiy] and Peta [Murgatroyd] with their baby and everyone is having babies right now. So I’m like, ‘It’s time for me to have one!'” Cheryl and Matthew first met through Matthew’s older brother, Joey Lawrence, who appeared as a star on Season 3 of Dancing With the Stars.
