Today PEOPLE Magazine broke the news that Chris Lane and Lauren Bushnell of “Bachelor” fame are engaged!! They were celebrating Father’s Day at Bushnell’s parents’ home in Oregon when he popped the question. Lane had been working on a song for her called “Big, Big Plans” which happens to be all about the proposal.

He played the song and then got down on one knee with a gorgeous emerald-cut diamond. The groom to be just happened to step in some fresh dog poop in his bare feet just as he was about to go through with the proposal, he told PEOPLE. “Even though I felt pretty confident I was going to get the ‘Yes,’ I’ve never been that nervous,” he continued. “When I got to the third verse of the song and knew it was time, I pretty much blacked out. The next thing I knew, she said ‘yes’ and the nerves just lifted! It’s an explosion of excitement, pure joy, and love.” Bushnell & Lane started dating back in the fall after a long friendship. They made it official in November, debuting their relationship at the BMI Country Awards.

These two seem to be a match made in heaven and we are so excited to see the future music this happiness is going to bring the talented musician. Take a listen to the song and watch the touching and emotional proposal above.

Congrats to Chris & Lauren – the future Mr. & Mrs. Lane!!
