It's always a wonderful day in the Bahamas, but on Boxing Day, it was especially beautiful. DJ Ruckus proposed (in the most adorable way) to his Victoria's Secret-model-girlfriend Shanina Shaik in the Bahamas on December 26th. The DJ popped the question on a secluded private island, while vacationing there with his main squeeze.
Shaik announced her engagement on Instagram, with an intimate beach-selfie of Ruckus' arm wrapped around her, and the (hard to miss!) hexagonal diamond engagement ring in the midst. The scene looked picture-perfect, from what we can tell from her Instagram feed.
Even though it seemed like he pulled the deed off solo on the beach, there were several celebrity hands that were involved in the proposal plot, making sure that the main event went off without a hitch. Lenny Kravitz offered up his private island for the proposal, People reports, and none other than Denzel Washington, a friend of DJ Ruckus, brought the engagement ring safely and securely to the island over the holiday. Talk about first-class, door-to-door service.
Ruckus, who proposed to Shaik during their day at the beach, also had his personal jeweler, Lorraine Schwartz, create two backup rings for his bride-to-be to choose — in case his lucky lady didn't like the ring he had originally picked. Decisions, decisions! The Australian bride-to-be ended up selecting the gold hexagonal diamond ring, which was encrusted with diamonds and amethysts (her February birthstone) in the shape of their initials on the opposite side, according to Vogue. With such a thoughtful, gorgeous engagement ring option like the one she's sporting, it was probably hard to even look at the other two rings — but we're sure they were all stunning.
After the proposal, the happy couple celebrated with their friends and family on the island, partaking in events which included dancing the night away and Facetiming with actor Tyrese Gibson and deejay Rev Run to share the special news. Either way you slice it, Ruckus' planning and execution set the bar pretty high for 2016 as far as proposal planning goes — we're thinking he definitely deserves to be in the running for best celebrity proposal of 2015!
