Bristol Palin is engaged!
Bristol and her beau, Sgt. Dakota Meyer, shared the exciting news on social media.
Meyer, a former U.S. Marine and a recipient of the U.S. Medal of Honor, posted a sweet Instagram pic with the caption, "I'm definitely the luckiest guy ever to be able to spend the rest of my life with @bsmp2 #shesaidyes."
Palin took to Instagram too, sharing kissing pics and photos of her giant cushion-cut diamond engagement ring. She wrote, "Truly the luckiest girl in the world, cannot wait to marry this man!!!!"
Bristol's mom, former Gov. Sarah Palin, shared more details on her Facebook page. "Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country – like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients – has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them. They met last year when he was in Alaska to film an episode of “Amazing America,” and even then it was noticed that just as we like to describe Bristol as “an old soul” wise beyond her years, the same also applies to Dakota."
She continued, "Rascal Flatts dedicated a perfect song to them last night during their concert as Dakota proposed; it sums it up best: 'Every long lost dream led me to where you are... they were like Northern stars pointing me on my way into your loving arms. This much I know is true – that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you.'”
