Chris Lane is off the market! The singer popped the question to his girlfriend, Bachelor alum Lauren Bushnell, on Sunday (June 16th) in her family's backyard in Oregon.

Chris told People.com, “I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal, so I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard.”

Chris admits there was one mishap during the proposal. He said, “As I was about to propose . . . I stepped in fresh dog poop with my bare feet. Not at all how I planned it out in my head!”

Once things got back on track, Chris played a song he wrote for Lauren called “Big Big Plans" which includes the lyrics, "Right now we’re back in her hometown / and I’m down on one knee.”

The engagement ring is a 3.5 carat, emerald-cut diamond.

Chris and Lauren began dating last fall. They made their first public appearance together during the BMI Country Awards in Nashville back in November.
