For Mikala Thomas, Joe Torgerson is certainly the one! The MTV duo—who starred on different seasons of Are You the One?—announced their engagement on Instagram Feb. 15.

Joe posted a photo of himself holding hands with Mikala as they enjoyed a few cocktails and she blissfully stared at her ring, with the future groom writing, "You're stuck with me now."

The bride-to-be also gave fans a closer look at her sparkly new accessory—which appears to feature a giant solitaire diamond set on a gold band—by sharing a picture of herself resting her hand on him during their beach vacation. She captioned the sweet snapshot, "Best friends forever."
