Bristol Palin and Sgt. Dakota Meyer are reveling in the excitement of their engagement, but before he proposed, Palin had no clue that what would begin as a Rascal Flatts concert would turn into the most exciting night of her life!
The 24-year-old revealed on her website that he proposed right after the leader singer, Gary LeVox, dedicated one of the band's hit songs to the couple.
"He's so romantic! He asked me to marry him at a Rascal Flatts concert," she wrote. "The lead singer, Gary LeVox, dedicated 'Bless the Broken Road' to us, and then Dakota got down on one knee and proposed!"
The 24-year-old uploaded a video to Instagram of LeVox announcing the band's dedication while onstage in Las Vegas, captioning the clip, "So thankful to have this on video @brady_melin."
Palin and her 26-year-old war hero fiancé posted their big news on social media Saturday, revealing, "She said yes" and showing off her gorgeous halo, cushion-cut bling! This will be a first marriage for both Palin and Meyer, but Palin previously had been engaged to Levi Johnston, the father of her 6-year-old son, Tripp.
Meyer continued to be unable to contain his happiness, telling NBC News, "For the first time in a long-time, I am truly happy and looking forward to living each day for the rest of my life with Bristol. I feel like Bristol and Tripp have given me a new lease on life, and I can hardly wait to share it with them."
It's unclear when Palin and Meyer began dating, as the confirmation of their relationship came from the news of their engagement! But mom Sarah Palin has posted pictures of the two lovebirds on Instagram over the past couple of months. The twosome met while on set of the politician's show, Amazing America.
In 2009, Meyer, then a 21-year-old corporal, saved the lives of 36 men in Afghanistan when he defied orders after he and his team were attacked by Taliban fighters for six hours. He also retrieved the bodies of his comrades who were killed in the attack. He was wounded by shrapnel. In 2011, he became the first living marine to receive the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War. President Barack Obama presented it to him. He now serves in the Marine Corps Inactive Ready Reserve.
