The 27-year-old surprised his girlfriend of three years when he took a knee at the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy, presenting his bride-to-be with a pear-shaped diamond engagement ring 2.5 carats. Although Maeva first showed off her ring exclusively to HELLO! In May, the pregnant TV star has now shared personal photos from their getaway, including close-ups of her James-designed rock.

“The best day of my life,” she captioned a series of snaps, tagging Portofino. In the first photo, she raised her left hand admiring the ring against the backdrop of stunning sea views from the balcony of their hotel room.

It wasn’t long before fans of the couple shared their thoughts in the comments section, with plenty of gushing about her ring. “A big congratulations, absolutely beautiful ring!!!” wrote one, and another remarked, “Wow this ring is beautiful. Looks like my diamond shape. He picked xx well.”

A third added: ‘What a ring capper’, while a fourth commented: ‘Beautiful ring for a beautiful woman, congratulations to you both on your engagement and the baby news.’

Another photo showed Maeva sitting on James’ lap as he kissed her on the cheek with the fountain behind them moments after she said “Yes!” The special moment was probably a shock for Maeva since he had refused her proposal on Made in Chelsea a few weeks earlier.

A exclusive HELLO! video revealed the moment James popped the question as Maeva made a wish as she tossed a coin into the Trevi Fountain with her eyes closed.

“Are you kidding me?” you could hear him ask James after opening his eyes.

“I made my wish which was, ‘I really hope James proposes to me soon,'” she recalled. “And then I opened my eyes and there he was on one knee. I was like, ‘Wow, this is it! Is this real?’ It was all I ever wanted.”

“I feel like I have everything I ever wanted – it’s that secure feeling that she’s my wife, forever,” James said. “I feel protected. Being engaged to the man of my dreams is incredible. It’s a different love, it’s stronger, it’s deeper. I feel safe,” added Maeva .
