We’ve got some major news, Big Brother fans: Season 15 standout Aaryn Gries — who stirred up drama with some controversial statements — is now engaged! The former reality star’s boyfriend, Nick Williams, popped the question yesterday, August 4, at the Robbins Brothers jewelry store in Houston, and she said yes.


According to TooFab, Nick told Aaryn she could pick any ring she wanted and the pair ended up walking out with a 1.6 carat ring. Not too shabby, girlfriend! The next stop for the pair was taking an adorable selfie, writing, “Guess it’s my turn y’all! #WeAreEngaged!”

Aaryn’s Big Brother family has been tweeting their support ever since she announced the big news on Twitter. Big Brother 15 winner Andy Herren along with pals Amanda Zuckerman and GinaMarie Zimmerman have all reached out and offered their congrats.

“Thank You so much everyone,” Aaryn tweeted before heading to a celebratory dinner at The Melting Pot with her sweetie. “Your kind words are overwhelming us with love! XOXO #LoveYall.” Clearly the 23-year-old is still in shock. “Still can’t believe it! I’m usually planning other people’s weddings and helping other women find their wedding gown,” she wrote. “You mean to tell me it’s really my turn!? #MindBlown.”

Congrats, Aaryn and Nick! How about a wedding in the Big Brother backyard?
