We guessed it would happen this year, and sure enough, Ciara and Russell Wilson are officially—and finally, after months of rumors—engaged! The Seattle Seahawks quarterback popped the question on an impromptu trip to the Seychelles following Paris Fashion Week. The couple, who have been dating since April 2015, played "travel roulette" with 30 possible destinations all over the world to try and figure out where he was taking her (uh, can we get in on that game, too?). Ciara's rep told People the singer was "shocked when they landed in the Seychelles at the exclusive resort North Island." The island is clearly a popular destination, with super-celebrities like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as well as Victoria and David Beckham having vacationed there in the past.

The R&B singer posted an adorable video to Instagram, showing off her gorgeous ring and her and Wilson's infectious smiles after she said yes. Wilson gushed about the happy occasion on Instagram: "She said Yes!!! Since Day 1 I knew you were the one. No Greater feeling… #TrueLove @Ciara."

According to Ciara's rep, Wilson got down on one knee "at the romantic private 'Honeymoon Beach' located on North Island." Ciara also posted an Instagram showing the happy couple picnicking on the beach right after the proposal with the adorable caption, "I feel complete."

A total girly girl, Jane loves everything about the wedding-planning process, but her favorite part has to be where it all starts: the engagement ring. She's a sucker for all things sparkly, especially in diamond form and sitting on your ring finger. But she can't count out those gorgeous bridal bouquets. They may not be diamonds, but they still hold a serious wow factor.
