Because Mariah is engaged!!!

Did we trick you?

Did you think that Kody was adding yet another wife to his arsenal, or that perhaps Meri had had enough and found another man?

Sorry, it's nothing that dramatic.

But it sure is adorable!

Mariah Brown Kissed by Audrey Kriss

Mariah is the only child of Meri and Kody -- Meri was unable to have anymore children.

A couple of years ago, Mariah told her family that she was gay, and although they struggled with the news a bit at first, they've become very accepting.

They even liked Audrey the first time Mariah brought her home to meet them, which was nice, because she was definitely nervous about it.

It's also nice that they like her since, you know, they're getting married.

The two ladies met while attending Westminster College in Salt Lake City, and Mariah has said that she had a crush on Audrey before she even came out.

They moved to Chicago together last year, and they really do seem to be ridiculously in love.

And at the Women's March last month in Washington D.C., Mariah popped the question.

She gave an interview to People about the big news, and she explained that she chose to the location because "We had just started dating when we came for the first time two years ago and it was such a special time for us that I wanted to propose there."

She said that she "can't exactly pinpoint" the moment she knew Audrey was the one, "but it was pretty early on."

"There are a lot of things about Audge that I am so in love with and I knew that I wanted to love those things for the rest of my life," she gushed.

"She made me a better person and continues to make me a better person."

As for the big moment itself, Mariah recounted that "We were in the middle of where everyone was marching and I was trying to get the ring out of my pocket, where it was stuck."

"I think Audrey was fixing her hair, but I just got down on one kneww and said some sweet things that neither of us can really remember because we were so caught up in the moment."

After that, "She was really sweet and started crying and I was crying and then I put the ring on her, got up and gave her a kiss and someone around us goes 'Did she say yes?'"

"And she totally hadn't yet!"

"Then she said 'I do! I do!" and then realized that was the wrong thing to say and then said 'Yes!'", Mariah continued.

"She's such a sweetheart. The ring is absolutely perfect, if I do say so myself."

It's been about a month since they got engaged, so how are things going now?

"Our friends and family have all been so excited for us!" Mariah said.

"I actually think my dad almost cried! He really likes Audrey."

"All of our friends have been so sweet and offering to help and our families are obviously excited to share their input," she added.

Speaking of family, Meri has been very vocal with her excitement about the engagement.

She shared Mariah's interview on Facebook and along with it, she wrote "You guys, have you heard?"

"I am SO excited for my girls (even though they hate being referred to as my girls lol!) Mariah Brown and Audrey Kriss!!"

"Wishing them all the best forever and always!!" she finished.

Robyn, Kody's fourth wife, tweeted "We are so excited! We love them both so much and they are a wonderful couple."

Kody and his other two wives, Janelle and Christine, haven't publicly commented on the news yet, but we hope they're just as excited.

Congratulations, Mariah and Audrey!
