Victoria’s Secret Angel Lais Ribeiro and her NBA player Joakim Noah are engaged!

The couple got engaged while at Burning Man — her “favorite place in the world” — the model, 28, announced on Instagram Saturday.

“I’m a bit late for Burning Man pics and of course I didn’t touch my phone for 5 days and I don’t have a single pic but thanks to my Bff @jeromeduran he captured one of the best moments in my life!” shared Ribeiro, who is mom to 11-year-old son Alexandre.

“[Noah] surprised me at my fav place in the world and proposed 💍,” she said. “And I couldn’t be happier! We are getting married guys👰💍😍💃🏽.”

In the photo, she and Noah, 34, lock in an embrace under a tent — seemingly after Ribeiro said “yes.” The model was ready for Burning Man in a mesh neon-green skirt and pasties to match.

Noah commented on Ribeiro’s post to tell her he always has her back.
