What a happy Mother’s Day indeed it is for Cassandra Ferguson! The Season 18 Bachelor beauty and single mom tells Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that she is engaged, as of this morning, to Detroit Pistons player Rodney Stuckey!

“He proposed!” she gushes to us about her happy Sunday news. “This morning, he made me breakfast in bed and wrote me a letter. Super simple and sweet, which is how he is. And a great Mother’s Day gift!”

Cass recently revealed that she and Rodney, the father of her 2-year-old son, Trey, got back together just a few weeks ago. At the time we talked to the 22-year-old former Pistons dancer and make-up artist in late April, she said her fingers were crossed for a proposal in the near future. “I would love something romantic, obviously, but I could care less if it’s simple or extravagant,” she confided.

Cass posted a picture of her beautiful engagement ring on Instagram, captioning the shot "Yes, I'm engaged!"

After appearing on Juan Pablo Galavis’s season of The Bachelor, she dated around a bit before getting back together with her ex. The two just took a trip together to Miami to celebrate the NBA player’s 28th birthday, and for Cassandra to find out whether things were heading in the direction she was hoping. Sounds like she got just what she wanted!

The beautiful and sweet Cassandra joins fellow “special one” (single mom, to those of us who aren’t Juan Pablo) Renée Oteri, who got engaged to her former love, Bracy Maynard, in late February, and eloped on March 20. We’ll see if Mama Cass follows in her show pal’s footsteps with the quick turnaround on a wedding!

Congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple and their darling son, Trey!
