"Although I said that this isn't a proposal, I want to ask you something," Keven asked the E! News correspondent on air. "Will you make me the happiest man on Earth?" When the shock wore off, Maria said yes to her filmmaker beau after he promised her, "This is not a joke," according to E! News.

He continued: "I love you so much and this show's meant so much to both of us. … Why not make it official now? Will you honey? Will you accept?"

Kevin proposed to his ladylove with a custom made ring by French jeweler Jean Dousset, who worked closely with Keven to create the "one of a kind" ring of Maria's dreams. "I am truly flattered to have been included to create this ring, 19 years in the making," Jean told E! News. "Keven chose to add personal elements to the ring by including a Signature Stone hidden underneath. The choice of color and origin of the stone adds thoughtful detail only he and Maria will know and see."

Bonus, the rings also includes a round, brilliant-cut center stone set in the jeweler's Seamless Halo and adorned with 220 intricately set brilliant-cut diamonds.
