The Band Perry singer Kimberly Perry is engaged to her boyfriend of over a year, MLB star J.P. Arencibia.
The Toronto Blue Jays catcher proposed at Perry’s parents’ home in Tennessee on Monday night, a rep for the band confirmed.
Perry got her dream proposal, admitting that there’s a tree on her family’s 15-acre property that she dreamed of getting proposed under.
“If I get proposed to in this life, I hope it happens underneath this tree,” she told The Tennessean about what she thought when she first saw the tree.
Thinking she was going to dinner with Arencibia and her family, when they called her to go outside by the tree and saw her boyfriend standing underneath it, she knew something was up.
“I saw that and I thought, ‘This is really happening,’” she said. Perry also said she was told to go inside the house and change into a pink dress, finding a letter and a bracelet. “I got to read the letter and get dressed and put on my grandfather’s bracelet,” she said. “I came back out on the front porch and he was standing there and he got down on one knee. It was perfect.”
Perry said of her now-fiance, “I’ve never felt that with anyone before. He’s just a really gentle soul. He balances me for sure.”
Us Weekly notes they plan to tie the knot next summer. Arencibia proposed with a 3.3-karat emerald cut diamond ring.
