Actress Ashley Blaine Featherson gets what she wants! The "Dear White People" star announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Darroll Jenkins over the weekend with an envious ring selfie and later revealed that she manifested the relationship milestone.

"My Love. My Legacy. My Light. My Life. Forever & A Day Isn’t Long Enough," wrote the Netflix star on Instagram, showing off her round-cut diamond ring set on a platinum diamond pavé band. Designed by family-owned jeweler RF Collection, the rock is 3.53-carats total and estimated to be worth nearly $40,000, per owner Roy Froindlich.

She closed off the caption with "#JenkinsBash 2021" alluding that the nuptials are already in the works for next year—and the couple already decided on a hashtag for the big day!

After sharing the obligatory ring pic, Featherson then posted an image depicting exactly how the romantic moment went down. In fitting California fashion, Jenkins proposed at sunset while the couple was horseback riding on the beach in Santa Barbara—don't worry we're just as jealous! The actress described the engagement as "The Most Precious Moment Of My Life."

She continued, "Walking Into This New Phase Of Life With You Is A GOD DREAM! I Know That What Ever Life May Throw Our Way We Will Be Just Fine Because We Have Each Other & God At The Center. D, You Are The Love Of My Life. The Thought, Care & LOVE implemented so flawlessly in order for us to have one of the best days of our lives is a memory that will ALWAYS bring me to tears. I Thank God For You. Always Have. Always Will. 10 Summers. LOOK AT US NOW."

Once the newly-engaged couple finished their intimate celebration on the beach, the couple then celebrated with family and friends at 1 Hotel West Hollywood. Following the festivities, the actress shared a 2020 manifestation board that she created in September 2019, which featured an image of an engagement ring.
