Congratulations are in order for Bear Brown! The Alaskan Bush People star is officially engaged to his model girlfriend, Raiven Adams, and he sweetly popped the question to her with a ring that’s been in her family for years. The Discovery alum even went the extra mile with his proposal, by getting down on one knee in a place where they shared their first kiss.

“Raiven has been my best friend since Noah’s wedding,” Bear, 32, revealed to PEOPLE. “She helped me a lot over the last year and I hope I can always be there for her the way she is for me. I love her. I never thought I’d hear myself say those words, but I do!”

The reality star’s future blushing bride also shared how excited she is to spend the rest of her life with Bear. “It was a perfect moment with just us,” Raiven, 21, said about his thoughtful proposal, which took place on the family’s land in Washington. “He’s such a special person with the biggest heart. I’m so happy to be by his side and share this time with both of our families.”

Just last month, Bear was gushing over how Raiven is “the most awesome and extreme woman” he’s ever met. The ABP star also said she was “the full package,” and the feelings are mutual. Raiven praised his “ability to love unconditionally” and determination to “ensure other people’s happiness.”

The pair first went public with their blossoming romance in July, but they actually met a year prior and began dating exclusively only a few months ago. Raiven and Bear interestingly sparked a connection at his little brother Noah Brown’s wedding to Rhain Brown last summer in Idaho. Raiven and her mother, Kassy, showed up to take photos of the romantic nuptials in August 2018 and the couple later revealed they felt an instant connection.

We can’t wait to see them walk down the aisle!
