by at .  Updated at .

Deena Nicole Cortese has officially grown up. 

The 29-year-old Jersey Shore star has announced that she and her long-time boyfriend, Christopher Buckner are engaged

The couple were vacationing in Riviera Maya, Mexico, when Buckner decided that the time was right and asked his little guidette to be his one and only. 

In true reality TV star fashion, Deena took to Instagram to show off her bling and say some loving words about her husband-to-be. 

Granted, the ring looks like a huge rock. 

Anyone would want to show that off. 

Have a look below at her posts:

“I always knew I would spend the rest of my life with Christopher,” Cortese captioned.

It sure sounds like Couples Therapy worked a treat for them.

Deena seemed to think the first picture didn't show enough of the ring, so she shared a second image with an even bigger caption.

Surprisingly, she was right.

"I felt like the other pictures didn't show how beautiful the ring was.. The pic on the left was me a little after he proposed after I was finished happy sobbing lol Christopher did such an amazing job picking me out the perfect ring .. It fits my little hand perfectly .. This still all doesn't feel real!!! I love you @cbuckner_ this weekend has been so amazing so far"

If you watch Jersey Shore online, you are probably shocked at the prospect of Deena settling down.

Joining the MTV hit for Season 3 as Snooki's best friend, Deena quickly made her mark on the show and won over a legion of fans who quickly warmed up to her. 

She had a charming personality and managed to be funny without forcing the jokes. 

She really was a blast in a glass. 

In her first episode, she accidentally took her underwear off in from of a very shocked Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino. It made for hilarious TV, but she changed a lot in the final season of the show. 

In subsequent seasons, her drunken behavior reached crazy heights and it even resulted in her being arrested for being drunk in public. 

She definitely followed in the footsteps of Snooki by being arrested.

This was around the time Sammie Giancola and Ronnie Magro were looking out for her. 

Yes, the pair were actually getting along swimmingly in later seasons. 

It was clear she knew the show was coming to a close and tried her best to change the way she carried herself on the show. 

The show ultimately came to an end when it became apparent that most of the core cast were growing up and getting ready for a life away from the shore. 

What do you think about the engagement?
