“I’m keeping you forever and always,” the 27-year-old captioned a series of eight photos, quoting Shania Twain‘s “Forever and for Always.” “We will be together all of our days Wanna wake up every morning to your sweet face… Always.”

The photos from the sweet moment on Friday, May 31, show the couple on a rooftop sprinkled with white petals as Gottschalk, 29, gets down on one knee to pop the question.

Gates, who met her future husband on season 4 of The Bachelor spinoff in 2017, had hinted at engagement plans last July after moving from Arkansas to Dallas to be with him.

“I’m really obsessed with Adam. I’m just really happy to be with him,” she said during an appearance on “The Morning Toast.” “I really do feel, like, butterflies talking about him. He at first was, like, so obsessed with me, and now I’m so obsessed with him. I’m calling him from work, like, ‘When are you coming home? Are you home yet? Can you come home early?'”

An insider close to the pair also told Us Weekly that an engagement was on the cards. “It just seems like the next step because things are going so smoothly,” the source told Us last June, adding that “both of their families fully support their relationship.”
