Maci Bookout recently revealed that she was desperate for Taylor McKinney to propose — and she finally got her wish!
Bookout revealed she is engaged with a joyous Instagram post that showed the happy couple just moments after McKinney popped the question.
"We were on Venice Beach!" Bookout revealed in an exclusive interview with MTV News immediately after the proposal. "He (and MTV) had told me that I was going to do an interview for MTV.com, which turned out to be a complete trick just to get me to the beach for him to ask me.
"When he asked me to marry him, I was in complete shock," she continued. "I couldn’t believe that it was actually happening, and to be honest, I couldn’t believe that he had pulled it off without me figuring it out…because I usually know everything!
"I honestly don’t think it has actually ’hit’ me yet," Bookout said. "But I am very excited and feel super blessed that I get to marry Taylor. He’s an amazing man and dad."
Bookout’s children Bentley and Jayde were on hand for the big moment and at least one couldn’t be happier.
"He was shocked and emotional," she revealed of Bentley’s reaction. "He actually teared up a little bit — I think his exact words were that he was just so happy that T-Money was finally going to be his stepdad.
"Jayde was pumped considering she is only eight months old," she joked. "She has no idea what’s really going on.
"Taylor has asked Bentley to be his ’mini’ best man, and Bentley agreed. Not sure he is aware of the responsibilities of a best man, but I’m sure he will do just fine! Jayde will definitely have a part in our wedding too — it’s just a matter of figuring it out considering she is still so young. I am excited to have them share this day with us."
The couple is still deciding on details like a wedding date, but we’ll keep you posted!
