Karina’s Relationship; Husband Or Boyfriend?
Since Karina just announced her pregnancy, there is a good chance that she is currently dating someone. But since the pro ballroom dancer opted not to disclose the father’s identity, it is not known who the lucky guy is.
However, the last person that was romantically linked to Karina was the reality TV personality, Chad Johnson. The two were together since November of 2016 but went separate ways in February of 2017.

Before Chad, Dancing with the Stars winner was involved with multiple partners throughout the years. She went out with another DWTS dancer Mario Lopez from September 2006 to June 2008 and even got engaged to dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy in 2008 after her split from Mario.
However, the engagement didn't turn into a marriage, and they separated. Her second engagement was with Brad Penny in 2010, but this relationship didn't last long, either, as they broke off the engagement in December 2011.
Moving on from Brad, Karina dated race car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. in 2012 and actor Pablo Schrieber in 2014. But neither of those partners were good enough for Karina.
After two short relationships, Karina got engaged for the third time, and the guy was Jason Adelman. They started dating in 2014 and were engaged by January 2015. However, their engagement period was as short as their dating life, and the couple decided to call off the engagement in March of 2015.
