“I’m so happy beyond words,” the 32-year-old singer gushed. “We were vacationing in Europe. We had just gone to Greece and ended up coming back to Paris, and I was surprised with my parents showing up in Paris. I didn’t know. There was some trickery going on.”

Bailon lived every girl’s dream when Houghton, 45, popped the question in front of the Eiffel Tower.

“It was honestly just magical,” she said. “My parents being there was so special to me. They actually were celebrating 20 years of marriage, and I thought originally that we were just celebrating them, and then obviously when the surprise happened, I was super excited and super happy."

"I can't wait," she added.

Bailon and her fiance dated for just six months before getting engaged, but she explained that they had a solid friendship before Houghton put a ring on it. “We were friends for three years before!” the Cheetah Girls alum said. “I think that makes a big difference. Being older, you kind of know what you want. I think when you're younger, you have to date around -- kind of see what you like, what you don't."

“I’m gonna be 33 this year,” she continued. “I knew exactly what I wanted, and he is everything I wanted and more. He's awesome. He is my best friend. I think that makes such a big difference."

On the day of her engagement, Bailon shared a video of her diamond sparker with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

"You. Me. Oui," she captioned the Instagram video.

You. Me. Oui.
