Bachelor alum Madison Prewett is engaged!

The former Bachelor contestant got engaged to boyfriend Grant Troutt on Sunday evening. The couple got engaged just eight months after meeting, and the engagement occurred just a few days before the pair’s nine-month anniversary.

Troutt, a speaker and minister to athletes and churches, planned a special proposal at The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

“Grant was waiting for me and led me out to the beach, where he had candles and flowers and a Bible with my new name on it,” Prewett shared with PEOPLE. “And the ring of my dreams!”

Prewett also shared that she “had no idea the proposal was coming” and that Troutt’s “plans changed multiple times” before he settled on his final idea.

“He actually was supposed to come with me and my friends to Florida but he got sick and wasn’t able to make it,” she explains. “I thought we were celebrating one of our friend’s birthdays. I was told we were taking birthday pictures on the beach and when I came down, my best friend led me into the bathroom where my mom and sisters were with the dress I wanted to get engaged in.”

“In that moment, I knew,” she shared.

Fans first met Prewett on the set of Peter Weber’s Bachelor season in 2020. She was runner-up to Hannah Ann Sluss, but did briefly reconcile with Weber after he ended his engagement to Sluss.
