Sorry, ladies! Million Dollar Listing New York star Ryan Serhant is off the market!

The handsome real estate broker, 30, proposed to girlfriend Emilia Bechrakis, 29, early Sunday morning, Ryan confirmed exclusively to E! News Monday. But the Bravo hunk didn't just get down on one knee to pop the question—he shut down Times Square!

"No one has ever done something like this. But I'm only going to propose once in my life, so I wanted to make sure that I did something special," Ryan told E! News exclusively.

So, the Million Dollar Listing New York star worked tirelessly with the Times Square Alliance and the NYC Mayor's Office to shut down Times Square for an entire hour at 7 a.m. Sunday.

"It worked!" the groom-to-be gushed of his over-the-top proposal plan. "This is the most incredible day! Words really can't describe what I'm feeling."

As for the bride-to-be? "This was a complete surprise," the future Mrs. Serhant told E! News. "I was not expecting this at all. He's really outdone himself!"

And he didn't just outdo himself with the proposal. He also shocked his bride-to-be with a stunning custom-made radiant-cut diamond.

The proposal was filmed by Bravo for the upcoming fourth season of Million Dollar Listing New York.
