We can all tell by looking at Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec's wedding photos from their Sunday nuptials that these two are a couple built to last, but Johnson revealed that it took her a while to find "the one." She even admitted that she wasn't quite sure if she would ever get married.

The new Mrs. Herjavec, who turns 40 today, told People that she imagined herself getting married in her 30's after getting engaged in her 20's and calling it off because it didn't feel right. Though Dancing With the Stars is what skyrocketed her to fame, she admits that it did but a damper on her love life.

"I was nonstop working," Johnson told People. "It was difficult to be in a relationship. I thought marriage just wasn't for me."

"I think there's a stigma," Johnson continued. "People look at you if you're not married and they think, poor you, but that wasn't the case. I was really happy with my life. Of course I wanted to share my life with someone but I wasn't ready to settle and be with someone just for the sake of being with someone."

She may have had a rocky love life in the past, but Johnson has no doubt that her romance with Herjavec is "the real thing."

"He's the most incredible person," Johnson gushed. "I feel so lucky to go through life with someone who loves me so much. And I'm glad I waited for Mr. Right!"

Johnson and Herjavec met on the set of Dancing With the Stars and were married at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills last Sunday after about a year of dating. The bride walked down the aisle in a custom Monique Lhuillier ball gown to the tune of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," and the newlyweds performed two dance numbers for their guests. First, they had a traditional first dance to Etta James' "At Last," followed by a group dance with the bridal party to LunchMoney Lewis' "Bills." It was certainly a night to remember!
