She was stunned when she walked down a beach path lined with flower petals and flickering candles and found El Moussa waiting beneath two "kissing" palm trees that have grown into each other, making them appear as if they are sharing a smooch.

Dressed in a tuxedo, the HGTV star got down on one knee in the sand and asked for Young's hand in marriage. The father of two revealed that in preparation for the big moment, he secretly drove to Running Springs, CA, to ask her parents for their blessing, which they gave.

As for the sparkler, the Flip or Flop star chose an eight carat, colorless, emerald-cut diamond. "The diamond is perfect all the way around, just like Heather," El Moussa told PEOPLE of his selection. "I also picked this ring because 8 is a lucky number."

The supermodel, now 67, told PEOPLE on July 15, "just finding the love of my life at this point in my life has been amazing."

The 70-year-old financier, who lives with Johnson in Rancho Mirage, California, popped the question while they were attending an event in Palm Springs with their extended family.

"My older sister Sheilah was there and she said to Brian, 'I didn't hear you give my sister an answer when she asked you to marry her,'" Johnson recalled. "And he said, 'I have answered her. I have asked her to marry me. And she said, No. Besides that - I don't have a ring.'"

With that, Johnson said, "Brian's 88-year-old mother took off her wedding ring and passed it down the table till it got to Brian and he got down on one knee. I was sobbing uncontrollably and he said 'Will you marry me?' and I said yes!"

Maillian put the ring on Johnson's finger and when Johnson took it off to give back to his mom, her soon-to-be mother-in-law told her: "You can keep it on until the rest of the day!"

After they became engaged, Johnson said laughing, "I was like how the heck did that happen? I was saying I'm never going to get married again." (She was previously married to real estate agent Billy Potter and later music producer Danny Sims, father of their daughter Anansa.)

In lieu of a ring of her own, Johnson instead said, "Brian, I don't know how to say this but I don't want a diamond ring, let's buy a house instead."

And that exactly what they did.

Adam Chance and Sami Matarante.

When the Home Free singer's initial proposal plans were derailed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), he had to get creative - and he ultimately found an even more romantic plan B.

Chance originally planned to pop the question in Paris, where the group was supposed to play a show on March 15.

"March 17 was our two-year anniversary, so I just decided to go for it," he told PEOPLE of proposing while social distancing at home instead. "We were wearing onesies, and she thought we were about to record something goofy for Instagram - but I got down on one knee instead. I couldn't wait. It was the best decision I've ever made."

"I think I blacked out while it was happening - thankfully he had the sense to film it - but I do remember one of the first things he said, after I said 'yes,' was that he was sorry it wasn't more grandiose," Matarante said of the special moment. "Sure, Paris would have been a beautiful, magical place to get engaged … But at home, in our comfies, just felt so much more like us to me."

The video footage of their engagement is featured at the end of the group's new music video for their cover of Jason Isbell's "Cover Me Up."

The country singer/songwriter and her boyfriend of two years got engaged on May 2 while social distancing in Georgia together.

The "Good Lord" singer's older sister Ashlin helped with the romantic proposal, decorating a canoe with flowers for the couple to take a romantic boat ride. Once they got to the middle of the lake, Graham, 28, got down on one knee and presented the 23-year-old singer a ring made of wildflowers.

The pair plan to design her ring when jewelers resume business after the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.

Anderson announced their engagement on social media, sharing photos of the proposal and writing, "TURNS OUT MY MAN CATCHES MORE THAN FISH Ring brought to you by Tyler's beautiful mind, jewelers being closed, corona and wildflower stems."

Burrell met Claxton, who works in ad sales marketing at Univision, in 2018 through the dating app Bumble. Claxton popped the question in April in her hometown of Cazenovia, New York, where the two are currently isolating with Burrell's family.

"My mom and Stuart got together and made a plan where he and I were going to have a date night," Burrell told PEOPLE. "She set up a beautiful table in her apartment and we just planned a dinner for the two of us. We were having a nice time, and Stuart then starts saying, 'Oh, this is a good song to put on a playlist for our wedding reception.' And I'm like, 'Okay, sure. But why are we talking about that now?' "

"We started talking about family and just how nice it was to be here with everyone, so I sort of started getting weepy already," she added. "Then Stuart pulls a ring out of his pants pocket and I was like, 'Oh my gosh, I can't believe this is even happening.' "
