Ali Fedotowsky is getting hitched! The former Bachelorette star announced that her longtime boyfriend Kevin Manno proposed to her earlier this week and she accepted. Ali, who starred as the ‘Bachelorette’ back in 2010, posted photos of her enormous engagement ring to her Instagram account on Thursday, and wrote about the proposal on her blog, AliLuvs.com.
“So excited to share that Kevin asked me to be his wife and I said YES!!! No actually, I screamed yes. Ha!” she wrote. “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.”
Photos from the proposal day showed that Kevin provided plenty of champagne and red roses for Ali to celebrate the engagement, reminiscent of her time on ‘The Bachelorette.’ (The Ashley hopes Kevin hired ol’ Kasey Kahl to serenade Ali with this unforgettable ditty during the proposal!)
This is the second engagement for Ali. She was previously engaged to Roberto Martinez, the man she chose on her season of ‘The Bachelorette.’ They made it longer than most of the franchise’s couples (18 months!) before breaking off their engagement in November 2012.
Ali and Kevin, who works as a radio host, have been dating for over a year, and are currently living together (with their adorable doggie, Owen!) in Los Angeles. They met in Chicago when Ali was working on the show 1st Look.
She recently quit her job at E! News and has yet to announce her next career move.
The couple has not announced a wedding date yet.
