Pretty sure Nev Schulman is having the most exciting month ever. The host of MTV's series Catfish, which follows the journey of couples who have formed online relationships without having met in person, is not only expecting his first child, but also getting married! Schulman announced his engagement to his pregnant girlfriend Laura Perlongo Sunday night with some seriously impressive engagement ring selfies (below) that show off her gorgeous diamond ring.

Less than two weeks after the couple announced they were expecting their first child together, People reports, Schulman broke the news of their new engagement status on social media with photos highlighting Perlongo's new bridal bling, which appears to be round-cut diamond engulfed by a platinum swirl band.

"We're enraged!!!" Schulman, 31, jokingly captioned the selfie. Then on Monday, he followed up the playful pic with a more sentimental Instagram, which shows the totally in love couple cuddling. "Seriously though, couldn't be more in love with this nugget," he captioned the too-cute photo. "So excited to spend my life with you."

The five-month-pregnant Perlongo, 30, also made an Instagram announcement of her own, sharing a picture of her ring-adorned hand feeding Schulman what appears to be flower petals (not deli meat like we originally thought). "It's all v serious now," she wrote.

Following that meaty snap, the mom-to-be posted another Instagram expressing her excitement over the news, but this time with a totally nude photo (save for the flower petals) that shows off her engagement ring AND pregnancy belly. "Looking through photos from this whirlwind weekend when it finally dawned on me that I'm 5 months pregnant and engaged to the love of my life/best friend/twin clown/source of daily inspiration and so perfectly obnoxiously happy and blessed and giddy," Perlongo, who works in creative advertising, said. "So before I explode into tiny doves I wanted to share with the world what I looked like days before that explosion happens (for forensics etc) Out of breath. Out of words. Out of rose petals but never out of love. Completely floored. I love you endlessly @nevschulman." Followed by a slew of super cute emojis.

When the pair broke their pregnancy news earlier this month, they also confirmed that they were expecting a baby girl with a photo of a sonogram. "Words [can't] capture the excitement and joy I feel about becoming a father," Schulman wrote. "I am so in love with you Laura and thank you for giving me this incredible gift. You inspire and excite me every day."

Perlongo wrote in her blog that the pregnancy was unplanned but wasn't "a complete accident." She said, "We had talked about wanting kids."
