    Michelle Kosinski knows the right questions to ask, but this time, it was the NBC News correspondent who was asked one life-changing question.

    Kosinski announced her engagement today after Kimbell Duncan—a 48-year-old retired investment banker who runs the Rush Foundation to find efficient ways of stopping the spread of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa—popped the question during their getaway.

    And Duncan was a man with a plan.

    A source tells E! News that Duncan swept Kosinski away with a surprise trip to the thousand-year old castle fortress village of Eze, along the Mediterranean. While enjoying the view on Saturday, Duncan went up behind her and whispered the question in her ear with a round-cut classic Harry Winston diamond in hand.

    "He is unbelievably romantic," the source said of Duncan, who is a widower and single dad to twin 4-year-olds, adding that Kosinski was "stunned" and refers to her fiancé as "kindest man" she has ever dated.

    "Thank you so very very much everyone! Your sweet wishes are incredibly kind. We are excited! Xo," Kosinski wrote on her Facebook.

    There is no set date for the ceremony yet, but the source tells E! News that the "wedding date is probably soon," because Duncan's son wants the pair to get married "before punkin time." (So cute!)

    Congratulations to the couple!

    (E! Online and NBC News are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
