Amy Roloff no longer needs to contain her excitement.
The secret is out.
The celebration can begin!
And so can the beautiful ring flaunting...
On Friday evening, hours after Amy and Chris Marek confirmed their engagement, the Little People, Big World posted her own announcement on Instagram -- along with a brand new photo.
Of her smiling face.
And her gorgeous, shiny piece of bling.
:Guess what! I wanted to share with you- I’m engaged!" wrote a very excited Amy, adding on her official account:
"I was so surprised when Chris asked me to marry him. I said YES. I couldn’t be happier and so looking forward to this new part of our life journey together.
"I’m blessed. Love you Chris. I love us."
Amy and Chris have been dating for nearly three years.
The long-time reality star was previously married to Matt Roloff, with whom she still works and often interacts, for about 27 years welcoming four amazing kids into the world together.
Said Amy to People Magazine prior to sharing the huge engagement news on social media herself:
I’m excited, I’m so surprised, I’m thrilled!
I never in a million years thought I’d be getting married again, but I also hoped for it! Now that it’s happening, I couldn’t be happier or more excited.
Amy turned 55 on September 17 and Chris proposed a day later, as a belated and very special birthday gift.
Rarely one to speak to the media, he also got a few words in with People, telling the publication yesterday:
"I was very nervous! It had to be a heart shaped diamond because I knew that’s what Amy wanted."
There had been speculation for months about these two getting engaged, partly because they have been together for so long and partly because they just seem so happy together.
Rarely do a few days go by without Amy posting some image online of her and Marek smiling up a storm together.
Just about a month ago, we heard rumors of Roloff pushing Marek to propose, but it doesn't sound like there was any real pressure placed on him here.
He simply found the woman of his dreams and figured it was about time to pop the question.
This news merely adds to what ought to be a VERY exciting next several months for this famous family:
- Tori Roloff is expecting a girl in November.
- Audrey Roloff is expecting a boy in January.
- And now a wedding will take place at some point in the near future as well.
No public word yet from any other Roloff on this engagement, but allow us to jump in and simply say the following:
