Sad news for Noah Galloway and Jamie Boyd, who memorably got engaged on live television during an episode of Dancing With the Stars.

On Monday, the 33-year-old former DWTS contestant and Iraq War veteran revealed that the two have called off their engagement.

"After long and careful consideration we've decided to end our engagement," Galloway Instagrammed alongside a selfie of the two on the beach. "We love each other deeply and we're confident we will remain friends. While we wanted to share this with you, we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."

Galloway, a double amputee who rose to fame after he appeared on the November 2014 cover of Men's Health magazine -- the first reader to be selected for the magazine's cover -- proposed to Boyd during the May 11 episode of DWTS. Boyd also famously surprised the solider earlier in the season when she came home early from Army Reserve training to see him.

"I was very nervous, ya know?" Galloway admitted to ET following the romantic proposal. "About what I was going to say, and if I [would have] time. Because it's in the middle of a show, so you gotta get it done, and you're limited on what you can do. And there's all those people in there."

"And she could have said no! That would have been horrible," he added.
