Drew Scott and Linda Phan first crossed paths during a Toronto Fashion Week event in 2010 where Phan was dressed as the "fashion police." "She was wearing a big cop badge and giving out tickets for 'bad fashion,'" Scott told PEOPLE. "I saw her and thought, 'Oh, she's attractive!' She also had this great personality."

They exchanged numbers and a few months later decided to meet up, an event which Phan described as "the longest first date ever." After eating sushi and stopping for hot chocolate, Scott innocently (and unwarrantedly) invited himself along to a karaoke party that Phan was to attend. Although she was surprised at his persistence, it paid off the moment "he picked up the microphone."

Phan soon went to work for Drew and twin brother Jonathan's production company, Scott Brothers Entertainment, and now serves as the creative director. In 2012, she moved in with the HGTV stars in their Las Vegas pad. "People were always like, 'Isn't that weird?' But there's an ease to it," Phan told PEOPLE. "You wake up and you go to work. It's nice and really convenient to be able to have meetings with the people you live with."

After six years of dating, Scott popped the question with an elaborate proposal at Toronto's Piano Piano restaurant. A Dr. Seuss cake, a recording of the Property Brothers star singing Train's "Marry Me," a surprise after party and, of course, a custom ring were all included. "I've never met another woman like her, and once you do, you want to be with her forever," he told PEOPLE.

Scott and Phan made over every square inch of the 5-bedroom, 4-bath home — and even added a few new ones. With help from contractor Jonathan, they tackled every imaginable decor faux-pas, from "shag carpet no one even wanted to touch," to poodle wallpaper, said Scott. The pair were thrilled with the sophisticated final result. "It feels like we're on a honeymoon staycation—and the wedding hasn't even happened yet!" Scott told HGTV Magazine.

"We are still floating on clouds… today couldn't have been more magical," the couple exclusively told PEOPLE. "Surrounded by so many loved ones in such a beautiful place was unreal. We are very, very lucky. Friends, family, amazing food, blue skies and being even more in love than ever before — what more could we ask for?"

Three years later, the couple shared that they actually made it official prior to the Italy nuptials in Nashville — in a hot tub!

"Cat's out of the bag, everyone. Linda's pregnant!" Scott shared on the Dec. 21, 2021, episode of the couple's podcast, At Home.

The HGTV host and the podcast producer have often spoken about their hopes to start a family since tying the knot in 2018. After a two-year fertility journey that included IUI and IVF treatments, they finally received good news in August and are preparing to welcome a little one in May 2022.

They shared their wish that being open about their own road to parenthood might help others. "It has been an adventure to get here! We know we're not alone in this experience and that everyone's is filled with unique challenges along the way," they wrote in a complementary Instagram post. "We hope as we grow through this, that even one of you reading this can also feel a little less lonely in whatever path you're on!"
