Hoda explained what exactly went down during the big night. She said, "We went to our usual vacation, we ended up having a little dinner on the beach, and I was like, we were done with the dinner, I was eating the churros, licking the bottom of the bowl and he was like, 'I have something else I would like to say,' and he said some beautiful things, and he got down on one knee, and said, 'Would you be my wife,' and I said...'YES!'"
