Cincinatti Bengals star wide receiver Chad Ocho Cinco is obviously fond of his Dancing With The Stars partner Cheryl Burke.

So much so, he put a $10,000 ring designed by Jason The Jeweler on her finger as a show of appreciation for all the hard work she’s put in.

Known for his eccentric ways and elaborate touchdown celebrations, Chad gave the ring to Cheryl on one knee.

He told UsMagazine, “she has to deal with me nine hours a day. It’s like a marriage, so why not give marriage gifts? I don’t spend time with anyone like this — ever!”

For her part, Cheryl seems to be in shock.

She Told ETOnline, “I fainted a little. A little concussion. [He] gave it to me in the trailer on one knee. And it’s on my ring finger.”

“Not even any of my boyfriends have given me anything like this!”

When asked if there was a future romance in the making Cheryl says, “You never know.”
