Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan have been dating for about three years, but we were still stunned when the pair got engaged last week. In a new interview, Dove dished all about what caught her by surprise about the proposal – and their new status as "engaged couple."
"We were both very clear with each other that it was like, 'I know you're my person. You know you're my person. There's nobody else,'" Dove told People about their relationship. "But I knew he wanted to get married young – he had told me that. He was like, 'That's what I want as my life plan.'"
But when it came to the actual proposal, Dove shared that Ryan hadn't been hinting at all, and he surprised her with it! Similarly, she said that she didn't expect being "engaged" to change any part of their relationship, and has already noticed a shift.
"Because we already knew we wanted to get married one day, I didn't expect it to change anything," she said. "But 'fiancé' and 'boyfriend and girlfriend' is worlds apart. I literally feel like I've never been so calm before. I feel rooted to the ground. I feel good."
We're so happy for the couple!
