We gotta pop some bubbly for Draya Michele.

The reality star and Mint Swimwear designer has been swooped off the market after her beau Orlando Scandrick put a ring on it. Yep, E! News confirms that the Basketball Wives LA star is engaged.

Draya shares that the Dallas Cowboys cornerback popped the question Thursday evening over drinks at Arclight Cinemas in Sherman Oaks. And apparently, he was pretty nervous.

"He told me to dress casual and we ended up going to where we had our first date," Michele told People, who first broke the news. "He was acting so weird and so nervous. When he walked up to the bar he tripped and fell over some chairs! I was thinking 'What in the world is wrong with him?'"


Once he got down on one knee, Draya realized what was happening and said she began hysterically laughing and crying at the same time.

The 28-year-old athlete presented the 30-year-old beauty with a cushion-cut diamond weighing in at a little over 6 carats, designed by Jasons of Beverly Hills. "It's more than beautiful," she said, "more than I expected."

Fans of the show may remember that these two have had their fair share of ups and downs. In fact, this surprise comes on the heels of the duo taking a break, but apparently, they both realized that they're much better off together.

"I knew I was going to say yes to him whether he asked me now or four months ago. He's the first man to make me want to be different and be mature."

As for the wedding planning, Draya says she's in "no rush" and is "going to soak this time in and have fun!"

Congratulations to the two lovebirds!
