Elle King is a bride to be! The 31-year-old singer revealed on Friday that she and her boyfriend, Dan Tooker, are engaged after a year of dating. King posted a slideshow on her Instagram filled with photos of their engagement, sharing that she had planned on proposing to the tattoo artist while they celebrated their one-year anniversary in New Mexico.
"Today is our 1 year anniversary. We rode horses up a mountain to go gold panning. I had a ring in my pocket and I was going to toss it in the gold pan and propose to @tattooker ... but of course, my soulmate beat me to the punch and proposed to me the exact same way," she shared. "So I immediately got down on my knee too. I love you Daniel. 1 year down, forever to go. I said Yes by the way and so did he! ❤️💍💫❤️"
The "Ex’s & Oh’s” singer also showed off her stunning engagement ring in an Instagram Story video.
Booker, on his end, wrote, "I found something more precious and beautiful. I proposed after finding the ring in the pan and my sole mate [sic] of course had the same plan. She had a ring too for me. I love you so much and couldn’t imagine eternity with anyone else. I love you forever and more @elleking."
ET spoke with King about her relationship with Tooker this past July. At the time, King confessed that this had been "the most time" she's ever spent with a partner, admitting that there had been "a lot of testing moments" during quarantine. "It can 100% break a relationship," she shared, "but for us, it just made us stronger."
"Honestly, it's amazing that we're still in a relationship," she joked. "My dad [Rob Schneider], on Father's Day, brought up a really great point. He was like, 'Elle, you were married and you never spent this much time with him.'"
