Shortly after the news broke, Young sat down for an interview with People magazine and revealed that she couldn’t be happier with her decision. “I fall more in love every day,” she told the mag. “I was fortunate enough to grow up in a family with a healthy marriage and I thought, I’m not going to give up until I have that. He’s my person. And I didn’t know I could love at this level.”
She continued, “Nayte and I always had an undeniable connection. I thought, ‘I’m in trouble!’ But even when I was falling in love, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t infatuation.” Listen up, Bachelorette alums.
Nayte proposed with a stunning engagement ring from Neil Lane, which features a pear-shaped diamond, two tapered baguette gems and a sparkly halo. “It was the best-case scenario, but it was also terrifying,” he told People. “I had a conversation with Michelle, and I was like, ‘I want you to know I’m scared.’ But at the end of the day, I’ve never been so aligned with how I feel about somebody. When I closed my eyes and thought about the future, I saw her next to me.”
Congratulations to the happy couple! If you need us, we’ll be adding Young’s engagement ring to our Pinterest board.
