Love, 32, proposed to Bock while they were out for dinner celebrating her 33rd birthday. One day prior to his engagement post, Love shared a stunning shot of his fiancé and wrote: "Like fine wine. Happiest birthday Katie. Sending so much love your way. 🍷🍷🍷."

Love isn't the only one who has a way with words. The blonde beauty often offers a glimpse into her relationship with her handsome hunk. In September, Bock paid a touching tribute to her soon-to-be hubby for his birthday.

"Your humor makes me cry laugh regularly, your thoughtfulness is beyond anything I’ve ever known," the model captioned the photo of her hugging Love from behind. "Your generosity is without expectation, your work ethic is aspirational and your patience for teaching me rap lyrics is remarkable."
