After kissing a few frogs, The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock is engaged.
According to Life and Style, the proposal, filmed for the final episode, which airs on Aug. 5, took place on top of Dow’s Hill at the Verandah Resort & Spa.
Her winning man reportedly got down on one knee and proposed with a cushion-cut 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond and platinum engagement ring worth $75,000.
"She's over the moon!" a friend told the magazine. "Desiree believes she made the right choice."
Sources close to the show tells EnStars the couple have been seeing each other every few weeks since filming ended.
"The two have been meeting in secret, spending time together in secluded locations," the source told EnStars. "The locations are changed every time to avoid tipping off the media and revealing the winner."
After Monday night's hometown dates on The Bachelorette 2013, Desiree narrowed down her suitors to three. During the rose ceremony, Zak was eliminated, leaving Brooks, Chris and Drew to compete to win Desiree's heart.
The Bachelorette airs Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
