Miss USA Nia Sanchez will be soon be a Miss no more! The pageant winner is set to marry her boyfriend of more than a year, actor Daniel Booko.

Booko revealed the engagement — which happened this past Saturday in New York City — on Instagram with the photo above. Next to the adorable snap, he wrote: "We're engaged!! Ahhhh! Can't wait to spend forever with my love and best friend @realniasanchez @missusa!! #bestnightever #TheBookos"

For the proposal, Booko went all out. The 21 & Over actor secretly flew to New York City, where Sanchez currently resides, and rented out the Suite Royal at the NoMad Hotel. Then, Booko decorated the 700 square foot private terrace with the works: Candles and a plethora of flowers to set the scene for the most important question of his life.

"She's thinking she's going to an event with friends...[and] I will be there looking all dapper in a suit decorated with candles and flowers and the whole thing and have her come over — just her and I to have an intimate moment — then get down on one knee and propose, then pop champagne and celebrate," he told Rumor Fix before he popped the question.

The proposal isn't the only thing for which Booko pulled out all of the stops. In the snap, we can also see Sanchez's stunning sparkler, a platinum, two-carat engagement ring, which, E! News reports that he co-designed with INTA Gems and Diamonds, the same company that helps to craft all of the crowns for the Miss California competition. The best part, though, are the hidden red, white, and blue gems inside of the ring, to commemorate her recent win.
