Bristol Palin has announced she is engaged to Dakota Meyer, a 26-year-old marine that was awarded the Medal of Honor.
Briston, the 24-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, shared her exciting news and posted a sweet photo announcing her engagement.
Bristol posted a cute photo, captioning the picture, “Truly the luckiest girl in the world, cannot wait to marry this man!!!!'”
The mother-of-one then uploaded a picture of her engagement ring and wrote a piece on her Patheos blog, stating, “Last night, Sgt Dakota Meyer proposed and I said yes!”
Bristol wrote, “Dakota came to Alaska to film Amazing America with my mom last year. He met Tripp during that time, and I’ve seen him in a few places where our paths have crossed since. He’s visited us in Alaska, and I’ve visited his wonderful family in Kentucky. He’s wonderful with Tripp and I’m so proud to be marrying him.
“He’s so romantic! He asked me to marry him at a Rascal Flatts concert. The lead singer, Gary LeVox, dedicated ‘Bless the Broken Road’ to us, and then Dakota got down on one knee and proposed! It’s amazing to see what happens when you place everything in life in God’s hands. He really is good and His plans are so much greater than our own.”
Kentucky native Meyer, who served in the Marines for four years, also shared his excitement on social media, saying: ‘I’m definitely the luckiest guy ever to be able to spend the rest of my life with [Bristol] .’
The couple have recently started positing pictures together.
Last week she shared a photo as they played in the snow with her six-year-old son Tripp, who she had with her former fiancé Levi Johnson when she was just 17.
Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2011 after repeatedly charging into a kill zone during a 2009 ambush in Kunar Province, Afghanistan in search of four of his missing soldiers.
He was able to rescue 36 troops and kill eight Taliban attackers despite being shot in the arms.
