The 23-year-old baseball pro, on his end, shared video of the proposal, writing a lengthy caption about how much he loves his bride-to-be.

"So I’ll start with the obvious: I love you," he began. "I love you intensely, passionately, & also at times, recklessly. I make decisions on the spur of the moment (i mean look at how our relationship has gone up to this point). I’m a very non traditional type of person and I know I’ve found my match in you when it comes to that especially."

"Our relationship probably doesn’t make sense to many people for a sh*t ton of reasons, but we’re not doing it for them. We know this is forever. Why would we wait? Lol," he continued. "You literally stayed by my side when I felt I had lost my mind. You stayed by my side for these seemingly random changes of my life. You stayed when often times I didn’t deserve it. You’ve loved me for ME from day one."

You literally stayed by my side when I felt I had lost my mind. You stayed by my side for these seemingly random changes of my life. You stayed when often times I didn’t deserve it. You’ve loved me for ME from day one. Completely unselfishly. You’re undeniably the spark that reignited my fire. You’re deserving of much more than just this moment but this one just felt particularly magical. I’m incredibly humbled by the love that you give and I only hope I can portray a fraction of the love and light that you carry with you. I’ll never have enough words to tell you how much I love you, but I promise to always show you. But for now, I’ll finish this how I started: I love you. SO MUCH. @vanessamorgan

Kopech previously dated Kim Zolciak-Biermann's daughter, Brielle Biermann, until they broke up in March 2018. Morgan and Kopech began dating months after, with the actress sharing one of the first photos of her and the athlete in July 2018.

"Back in Vancouver for the next 10 months for season 3 of Riverdale! Best part? Getting to explore this beautiful place🇨🇦🚁," she captioned the pic.
