Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are engaged.

After three months of dating, the couple announced their engagement via Instagram overnight. Blac, 27, shared the first photo of her ring, writing, "YES!...!...!" Rob, 29, later shared a picture of his bride-to-be flashing her rock while holding a stack of dollar bills. Blac and Rob celebrated their engagement at the L.A. gentlemen's club Ace of Diamonds, as she had been hired to host a party prior to Rob popping the question. No modern engagement would be complete without a Snapchat story, of course. In one of the videos Blac shared with her fans, she and Rob were grinning from ear to ear as they listened to Kanye West's "Highlights" in the car, in which his brother-in-law, 38, raps, "Blac Chyna f---king Rob helped him with the weight."

Three sources close to Blac confirmed the engagement to E! News Tuesday. "They are so happy," an insider said. "Chyna's been texting her friends how excited she is!" Rob had asked Blac's family for their permission before proposing, two sources add. Her mom, Tokyo Toni, gushed about the engagement via Instagram Tuesday, writing, "Chy and Rob are my favorite two people in the world. They both have shown strength diversity and triumph. These kids are fabulous and both are great role models to young old or children. I have so much respect for this couple and all attached." As for a wedding date, Tokyo played coy, telling her followers, "To be continued."

According to one source, Rob bought the ring a week or so ago. "They were serious from the time they started dating," the source says. "He knew he wanted to marry her."

Blac's BFF, Amber Rose, gave the couple a shout-out on Instagram Tuesday, writing, "Congratulations to my Family @blacchyna and @robkardashian!!! Pease don't let nothing or no one tear u guys apart! I never seen my sis so happy and I couldn't be more happy for her! Sometimes we find love in the strangest places Lol God Bless you 2! Now let's get this wedding together so y'all can start making some babies #TrueLove #putaringonitsouknowitsreal #BlacRob."


Though it seems to be a happy time for the twosome, some fans were quick to question whether the engagement is real, and if so, whether it will last. After all, Blac has played into engagement rumors with Rob before. Together since January, this will be the first marriage for both Blac and Rob. The Lashed salon owner was previously engaged to Tyga, with whom she has a 3-year-old son, King Cairo Stevenson.
