Once Chris and Lauren fell head over heels for each other, it was game over. “I can’t stop smiling,” the former flight attendant wrote via Instagram confirming their engagement in June 2019 after just a few months of dating. “I feel so incredibly blessed that every misstep, mistake and heartache has led me to you. I couldn’t be happier to call you mine forever. The journey was well worth it.”
Chris opened up about popping the question shortly after she said yes. “I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal … so I decided to keep it pretty casual,” the “Hold You Tight” singer told People at the time. “I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought, I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard. … I was initially worried that doing it on Father’s Day might not be the best move, but her dad, Dave, said that it could only add to his Father’s Day and that’s when I decided Sunday, June 16, was the day.”
