The Angels are singing! Victoria’s Secret Angel Josephine Skriver is engaged after her longtime boyfriend and singer Alexander DeLeon, AKA Bohnes, popped the question under the Northern Lights. The model took to Instagram to share photos from the proposal, as well as her excitement over her new bride-to-be status.

“I SAID HELL-FREAKIN’-YES!!!! I’M ENGAGED,” Skriver began her caption, sharing five images of the proposal, the stunning scenery, and that epic engagement ring.

According to the caption, on November 23, DeLeon had them driven to see the Northern Lights in Finland and cross that item off his now-fiancée's bucket list. “He had a bonfire built for me on top of the middle of a frozen lake deep in Scandinavia completed with the full moon shining on our backs and hot cocoa to keep us warm!?!? Like.. is he crazy?!???” she wrote, in awe of the romantic gesture.

“For the first time in both of our lives we got to see the northern lights decide to show their dance across the starry night!!” the model continued. “It was a full moon... it was on the 23rd (23 is my lucky number).. and the same day as his song 'Aurora Borealis,' which was the first song he EVER wrote about me, came out to the world!”

“Sometimes the universe just chooses to leave you speechless!!!” she wrote. “That was when @bohnes looked over at me. When he got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever.. I have never been more sure about anything in my life. You are my biggest adventure. My fairytale come true. My soulmate. My best friend. The love of my life. So of course it was 1millionxYES!!!”

DeLeon, a man of fewer words, posted a single shot of his bride-to-be with the caption, “forever.” His photo gives us a good look at the gorgeous double band sparkler he gifted the model. The engagement ring appears to be an emerald-cut diamond set on two diamond encrusted bands—a ring just as epic as the scenery.

As expected, the congratulatory comments are currently flooding in from the couple’s celebrity friends. Fellow models (and potential bridesmaids?!) Sara Sampaio and Jasmine Tookes both reshared Skriver’s post with well wishes.

Skriver and DeLeon started dating in 2013, according to the Daily Mail, and when they aren’t traveling, they consider Nashville home, where they recently redesigned their first house together.
