Less than a month after Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad alum Michael Stagliano told us he was planning on asking his girlfriend Emily Tuchscherer to marry him, she said yes. The blue-eyed crooner already had Emily’s dad’s stamp of approval when he got down on bended knee at her parents’ Wisconsin home. "Yup! I'm engaged. Happy face," Michael tweeted, with the above photo.
Michael met Emily, a 28-year-old banker living in Chicago, just eight months before popping the question — and only a few weeks before canoodling with Rachel Truehart during Bachelor Pad 3 filming. When you know, you know! Back in January, Michael gushed to us about Emily, knowing full well he planned to make her his wife. “She’s the best thing that ever happened in my whole life,” he told us.
As for the blissful nuptials? Michael revealed they’ll most likely marry in the Midwest, because their families are both from there. Michael’s twin brother, Stephen, will serve as best man, while his wife, former Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas, will be one of Emily’s bridesmaids.
The only other wedding detail Michael’s confident he has locked in? A dance party. “All the Stagliano weddings, they’re all dance parties,” Michael explained. “ We dance hard. That will definitely be involved in the wedding.”
Michael’s first ABC ex girlfriend, former Bachelorette Jillian Harris, took to Twitter to congratulate the happy couple. “What!!!? Congrats!!! Yahoo!” Jilly tweeted. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
