Chris Lane is an engaged man. The 34-year-old country singer proposed to his girlfriend and former The Bachelor contestant Lauren Bushnell at her family’s Oregon home.

“I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal,” Chris tells People. “So, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard.”

He continued, “I was initially worried that doing it on Father’s Day might not be the best move, but her dad, Dave, said that it could only add to his Father’s Day and that’s when I decided Sunday, June 16 was the day. Shout out to Lauren’s parents, Dave and Kris, for having the yard in tip-top shape!”

Chris posted a video of the proposal on Youtube, where he began telling Lauren that he wanted to play a song, “Big Big Plans,” which he wrote for her.

“Some of you all know that I’ve been working on a song for Lauren and I just got it back today,” Chris said in the video. “So while we have the cameras here, I want to capture this moment of me playing it for her for the first time.”

Chris begins playing the song and a montage of sweet moments between the couple show on the screen.

She don’t know I got some big big plans / build a little house out on some hand me down land / find a little island where we go to get tan / then we take our kids down there one day / and I know she wouldn’t mind if I / did a little something like find a flight over night to paradise / leave tonight and I’m gonna put a diamond on her hand / she don’t know I got some big big plans,” he sings.

As the song ends, and Lauren and Chris are embraced in a hug, the “Fix” singer takes her out to the backyard and gets down on one knee to propose.

“Baby, you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” Chris said. “And I have to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”

Lauren shook her head yes as the tears flowed.

“Is that a yes?” Chris asked.

“Yes,” said Lauren.

Lauren later took to Instagram to share the news and her excitement.

“I can’t stop smiling 😭 I feel so incredibly blessed that every misstep, mistake and heartache has led me to you,” she wrote alongside a photo of the couple kissing. “I couldn’t be happier to call you mine, forever. The journey was well worth it. Thank you Christopher Eric Lane for softening my heart and making it whole. Never going to stop telling you how much I love you and I will hold onto you forever and ever! Lauren Lane has a nice ring to it 💍.”

She concluded with a P.S. “PS he wrote me a song 😭. I can’t stop listening or looking down at my hand 😍”

And just like that, the two are newly engaged. Congratulations to the happy couple!
