The star of reality show “Chrisley Knows Best,” formerly filmed in metro Atlanta, is engaged to professional hockey player Nic Kerdiles. 

The athlete popped the question last Christmas Eve in front of Chrisley’s family and friends at her home in Nashville, and it was all caught on tape, according to People.

While she said she was initially “furious” they were filming the day before Christmas, she later realized it was all purposeful. 

“My mom said she forgot something at the store. So, I got in the car and went to the store with her. When we came back and we walked in the door, no one was there,” the bride-to-be told the publication. “Our best friend’s kid, Dylan, goes, ‘Hey, I think they’re looking for you outside.’ I walk outside and it’s all lit up! And Nic’s family is standing on one side, my family and friends are standing on the other, and then I just start freaking out because I’m like, ‘This isn’t really about to happen.’”

She admitted she and Kerdiles were both nervous, but by the time he popped the question she said “everyone was crying.” 

The couple met on Instagram in November 2017 and have been talking about marriage for a while. In fact, Chrisley’s mother, Julie Chrisley, helped select the ring. It’s a 5-carat piece, designed by Dror Flantzman.

“My mom actually kind of picked out the ring, and so she went and sat down with a jeweler in Nashville and picked out the diamond and all of that,” Chrisley added. “And so, it’s kind of cool to know that she picked it out.”

Her father Todd Chrisley was a part of the event, too. Kerdiles gave him a call right before the big moment.

While the new-engaged couple is excited for their next chapter, they’re not rushing down the aisle. 

“Just because you’re engaged doesn’t mean you have to get married tomorrow,” Chrisley said. “So, we’re kind of just taking our time. We know that we want to spend the rest of our life with each other.'”
