She found her dream suitor, at last! Ali Fedotowsky and her radio host boyfriend, Kevin Manno, are engaged, the former Bachelorette announced via Instagram on Thursday, Sept. 3.
"9.2.15 #MrsManno @kevinmanno," Fedotowsky, 30, shared with her followers, alongside a picture of her new fiancé and huge diamond ring. She elaborated with more details on her blog, Ali Luvs.
"So excited to share that Kevin asked me to be his wife and I said YES!!! No actually, I screamed yes. Ha!" she gushed about the big moment. "He proposed yesterday and we had the most beautiful, magical day with our closest friends and can't wait to celebrate with family back home. Love, the future Mrs. Manno."
Her fiance also proudly tweeted about the engagement on Thursday.
I put a ring on it. @AliFedotowsky

He also posted the news via Instagram.
Fedotowsky has been waiting for the ring for quite some time. At an event last May, both the former E! News personality and Manno chatted with Us about their future together. "We haven't talked about it too much," Manno said at the time, while his bubbly girlfriend jokingly responded: "Yeah, what's going on with that Kevin?"
"We feel very strongly that we're in this for the long haul," Fedotowsky continued on a more serious note. "You know… I heard Kelly Rowland say the other day, 'I don't care about the ring so much because I got the guy,' and that's sort of how I feel."
This is Fedotowsky's second engagement. As witnessed on national television, the former Facebook employee got engaged to Roberto Martinez in the finale of her Bachelorette season back in 2010. The two moved in together, but broke off their engagement in November 2011. (Fedotowsky and Martinez briefly reunited in December 2012 for a steamy fling at Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum's wedding.)
Turning the page after her engagement saga, Fedotowsky confirmed to Us last May that she was happily dating Manno. She confessed it was weird describing Manno as her "boyfriend" at the time.
"I feel like I'm in sixth grade saying that," she said with a laugh. "I don't know why, but I do."
As for their love story and how they met? "We've been friends for a while, actually," Fedotowsky explained to Us. "We met in Chicago through a producer on my show, so we've been friends for a while and he moved to L.A. for work," she went on. "We're seeing how things are going."
