As for their own nuptials, the pair, who both live in Nashville, don’t have any plans as of yet.

“We’re excited about getting married,” says Bass, who has three sons: Nathan, 15, Liam 11 and Ensley, 8. “But we’re taking it one day at a time. And honestly, just hanging out with the boys has been a blast. The kids adore Carly.”

Adds his bride-to-be: “I’m equally in love with them! This has been a wild ride. I never expected this but I am so freaking thankful. Everything happened for a reason. I would do [the journey] a thousand times again. Because the next part is going to be bliss.”
