Well, Jason Kennedy has finally listened to everyone—he put a ring on it!

E! News has exclusively learned that our very own entertainment co-host and his girlfriend Lauren Scruggs are engaged. We've learned the surprise proposal happened in the fashion blogger's hometown of Dallas tonight in front of close friends and family.

Scruggs walked out to her balcony that overlooked a field where Kennedy had spelled out "Will you marry me" with candles, and when she went down to be with him, he presented the blond beauty with a Jennifer Meyer diamond.

"It's a blur but I can't stop smiling. She told me I couldn't surprise her, but I got her good. This is the best night of my life," Jason tells us.

Kennedy began dating the 25-year-old Still Lolo author—who was injured in a propeller accident in December 2011 that left her with a prosthetic arm and removed her left eye—in early summer of last year, and while they kept their romance private in the early stages, it's nearly impossible for the twosome to not flaunt their adorable love for each other now.

Aside from their numerous aww-worthy Instagram shots together (from beach pics to sweet Valentine's snapshots), the E! News co-host gushed about his lady during an interview with Glamour magazine.

"I'll admit it, being a so-called good boy has paid off for me. I've got my dream job. And I've found my dream girl," he told the magazine sweetly.

It's pretty clear...nice guys finish last win the race.
