Amalia and Shaun have been dating for two years, and he popped the question in December, but the couple decided to wait a while before making their engagement public.

“I’m very fond of the West Coast and it’s where he and I met. So, for me it was very special,” Sarie quoted her as saying.

The couple’s parents helped them celebrate the special moment.

“He is my dream. In every respect.”
