The One Tree Hill alum, 39, shared the exciting news on her Instagram page Tuesday, posting a picture of now-fiancé Grant Hughes getting down on one knee as he proposed to her on a boat during their getaway at Lake Como in Italy.

"So it turns out that being your favorite person's favorite person is the actual best feeling on planet Earth 💫 #YES," she captioned the sweet photo.

"Thank you to @comoclassicboats and @bottega53 for helping my favorite human plan the most incredible, moving surprise of my life," she continued. "My heart. It bursts."

In his own engagement post, Hughes wrote: "She is my forever Favorite. This is my favorite. And our life is that we're building because she said 'Yes' is already my favorite. I am SO EXCITED to do life with you, my love."

Bush was first spotted with Hughes in May 2020. In photos posted by E! News at the time, the pair held hands as they walked through Malibu together.

The day before their engagement, Bush posted pictures of Hughes on her Instagram, documenting a boat ride they took while touring Italy.

"DREAM*BOAT / 💫," she captioned the Monday post, which included some pictures of her as well as solo shots of her beau and a selfie. "Thoughtful travel, advised by @jessicamalatyrivera. Thoughtful fashion that's #peopleandplanet inclusive by @aguabyaguabendita + @fashionkind_ 🌎."

On Tuesday, Bush shared another solo picture of Hughes within an Instagram post featuring snaps from their trip. She included the hashtag "Happy Girl."

Throughout their relationship, FocusMotion co-founder Hughes has provided glimpses into their romance on his own Instagram page.

In January, Hughes chose to "recognize the moments of 2020 that were more durable than others" through a series of photos, some of which included Bush.
