The lovely Karina Smirnov, ballroom dance pro on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” celebrated her 36th birthday with a few friends. According to a Jan. 7 post on Wetpaint, the dancer shared her special day with a few friends as well as a few of her past partners.
The party was a apparently a surprise to Smirnov. IN attendance at the shindig which was held this past weekend in honor of her Jan. 2 birthday were previous dance partners Ralph Macchio from season12, Jacoby Jones from season 16 and Gavin DeGraw from season 14. Friend and fellow pro dancer, Anna Trebunskaya, who is currently on maternity leave, also showed up – baby bump and all.
Karina received a stunning cake that she gushed about on Twitter. From the picture she shared, it was hard to tell it was a cake. It looked more like a collection of purses and clothing, vintage, of course.
She thanked her friends and partners for coming out to celebrate with her on her Instagram page where she shared more photos.
Smirnov should be back in the ballroom in March when “Dancing with the Stars” returns for season 18.
