Miss America 2016 is on her way to becoming a Mrs! On Sunday, last year's winner of the Miss America pageant, Betty Cantrell, may have had to hand over her sparkly tiara to the newly-crowned winner, Savvy Shields, but in our opinion Cantrell made off with an even better piece of bling — an engagement ring! The former Miss America just announced her engagement to boyfriend, Spencer Maxwell, and her ring is bound to score a perfect ten from the judges.
This weekend was certainly happily hectic for Cantrell. Not only did she pass on her crown to Miss America 2017 during Sunday night's pageant, but she also announced her to-be-wedded status the very same night! The beauty queen took to Instagram to share her new sparkler, posting a princess-worthy photo (see below) of herself cuddled up to her hubby-to-be, crown and all.
"And now finally I can say my Fiancé!" Cantrell captioned the sweet snapshot. "To the man who let me be Miss America for a year, to the man who is moving to Nashville with me to help me achieve my dreams as a country music singer, to the man who so selflessly lets me shine, to the man who never gave up on me... to the love of my life. Forever and always, your dreams are my dreams. I love you Spinny." We're crying big, Miss America-esque tears over here!
And then because she knows what the people want, Cantrell also posted a close-up shot of her new engagement ring — a megawatt cushion-cut diamond sitting pretty on a simple silver band. "Because I'm OBSESSED!!!!!" the pageant winner wrote beside the perfect pic. Us too, Cantrell!

According to Hollywood Life, the to-be-wedded twosome met in March of 2015, just six months before Cantrell was crowned Miss America 2016. So what do you think, Cantrell? Is that bridal bling better than that Miss America crown?
