She then shared details of the engagement alongside a sweet photo of her and her new fiancé celebrating with an embrace as she showed off her new ring.

"This morning, 9 months and 13 days later, he got down on one knee in the kitchen while I was burning pancakes and asked me to marry him," she captioned the Instagram pic. "Loving him has been the greatest gift of my life. And now I get to do it for life. #HECALLEDDIBS."

Evans, 31, posted the same photo to his Instagram account, writing, "When you know, you know ... she's perfect. #ultimatedibs."

Ballerini then tweeted a close-up of her ring, which is totally jealousy-inducing. "I GET TO MARRY MY AUSSIE," she wrote. "My heart is bursting from loving this human so much. luckiest girl in the world."

The country singer also shared two shots from the engagement with ET, and she looks positively giddy and ecstatic in both! The pair's engagement photos were taken in Nashville, Tennessee (Ballerini is a Knoxville native).
