Chris Lane is officially off the market!
The I Don’t Know About You singer popped the question to his Bachelor alum girlfriend Lauren Bushnell on Father’s Day, June 16 – which was Sunday, just in case you don’t pay attention to the commercialized Hallmark Holidays.
The singer asked Lauren, his girlfriend since fall of 2017, to marry him in the backyard of her family’s home in Oregon, according to People, with a 3.5-carat, emerald-cut diamond to seal the deal.
A ring that Lauren may or may not have picked out herself.
“Lauren and I went and looked at rings about five months ago just for fun,” Chris tells People. “Watching her try on rings, I learned she loves emerald-cut diamonds, I even heard her say that was the exact kind of ring she wanted. Thankfully she made it pretty easy to pick out!”

I can’t stop smiling 😭 I feel so incredibly blessed that every misstep, mistake and heartache has led me to you. I couldn’t be happier to call you mine, forever. The journey was well worth it. Thank you Christopher Eric Lane for softening my heart and making it whole. Never going to stop telling you how much I love you and I will hold onto you forever and ever! Lauren Lane has a nice ring to it 💍 PS he wrote me a song 😭 I linked in my bio for y’all. I can’t stop listening or looking down at my hand 😍 thanks @people for covering 💕
Chris says the backyard proposal was pretty perfect because Lauren likes things chill.
“I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal,” he says. “So, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard.”
What’s also sweet is the romantic video Chris released as an engagement gift. Check it out below.
So far there’s no date announced for the wedding, but with Lauren being a professional influencer, we’re pretty sure it’ll be beautiful and romantic and sweet and completely Instagram ready.
