It’s a very special Christmas for Kacey Musgraves.
The country star got engaged to musician Ruston Kelly on Saturday, with Kelly popping the question in Musgraves’ childhood bedroom.
“I didn’t say yes … I said HELL YESSSS!! Last night the best man I’ve ever met got down on one knee in my little pink childhood home,” Musgraves, 28, wrote alongside an Instagram photo of her sparkling engagement ring in front of a Christmas tree. She also shared an ecstatic photo taken by friend and photographer Kelly Christine.
I didn't say yes…I said HELL YESSSS!! Last night, the best man I've ever met got down on one knee in my little pink childhood home..in the same room I played with my ponies and barbies and asked me the easiest question I've ever been asked. ❤ I finally know what everyone means when they say "you just know".
“In the same room I played with my ponies and barbies and asked me the easiest question I’ve ever been asked. I finally know what everyone means when they say, ‘You just know.’ ”
The two became linked earlier this year and have kept their relationship private. The A Very Kacey Christmas singer was previously linked to musician Misa Arriaga.
Kelly also gushed about the engagement in an Instagram photo showing Musgraves’ ring-bearing finger.
“I have never met a more incredible partner and woman,” he wrote. “Last night I became the luckiest, proudest and happiest man ever. I asked the brightest light in my life to marry me.”
We had just been at my parent's house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in this little, old country house I grew up in that I now have. We came back to that house afterwards and he had somehow pulled off having my sister + brother in-law sneak off and completely decorate my childhood bedroom in the most nostalgic and perfect Christmas decorations. I was bewildered and confused when I saw it all and turned around and the song "Two For The Road" by Henry Mancini started playing (this song is so emotional and sweet..it's one of my favorites..you have to go listen) and he was on his knee with a baby pink velvet ring box and the sparkliest thing I've ever seen! 💖Then my sister busted in and captured it all with her camera. It was so beyond special. Of all the places in the world I've gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the house that completely made me who I am.
What a moment that will forever be one of the happiest I've ever experienced. And it wouldn't of been possible without @kellychristinesutton + her amazing 📷skills, and @canaanadam helping me out. Happy to call them future sibs in law. And Kacey, I love you. Thank you for it all. Two for the road. MERRY CHRISTMAS
