EXCLUSIVE: Kym Johnson Says She's Done With 'Dancing With the Stars' After Marrying Robert Herjavec

Kym Johnson is leaving Dancing With the Stars on a high note.

ET caught up with the 40-year-old pro dancer on Monday at the Television Academy's Performers Peer Group Celebration in Los Angeles along with her new husband, Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec, where she said she isn't returning to the hit ABC show.

"I love the show and I love to still be part of it but, you know, I still want to hang up my dance shoes and what a way to end," Johnson told ET when asked if she's appearing on the new season. "It's like, 'thank you, Dancing With the Stars."

However, the fan favorite – who's also a judge on the Australian version of the show -- said she still might be appearing on the DWTS: All Access online show. Johnson started appearing on the DWTS in 2006, and has won the coveted mirror ball trophy twice -- in season 9 with Donny Osmond, and season 12 with NFL pro Hines Ward. She sat out season 10 and took a break after season 16, making a return four seasons later, when she was partnered with Herjavec.

Hilariously, it's actually 53-year-old Herjavec who's eager to get back into the ballroom. The businessman was paired with Johnson for season 20 -- when sparks obviously flew between the two. They ended up finishing in sixth place.

"I am going to go back and dance with somebody else so I can win the mirror ball this time," he joked about being "distracted." "I blame you Kym. Yeah, if you weren't there I would of won."

Johnson and Herjavec tied the knot last month, and are obviously still sporting that newlywed glow. The cute couple enjoyed an amazing honeymoon in Bora Bora, and Johnson is still getting used to her new title as "Mrs."

"It's funny that it does feel different in some ways, but it's still the same you know?" Johnson mused. "I still think we are on a high back from the honeymoon. It was just the best having all of our family and friends in town for the wedding and then going away. It has just been the most incredible kind of month."
