The couple have been together for almost three years and Bryan popped the question on Wednesday while they were hiking in Big Sur, California.
“I have never in my life seen him so nervous. I’ve been by him when he’s gone out for WrestleMania and some really big things,” Bella revealed. “He got really, really nervous and he started talking about how long we’ve been together. He got down on one knee and compared our love. He said he’ll love me forever like the ocean goes on.”
Bryan says he was biding his time to pop the question in order to have that perfect moment. “I’ve had the ring for a long time. Just trying to find the moment that fits,” Bryan said. “A moment that’s worthy of Brie.”
Bella says she is targeting a wedding date for between April and June of next year.
Shortly after the report surfaced on EOnline.com, Bryan issued the following message on Twitter.
