He truly called dibs! Grammy-nominated artist Kelsea Ballerini is engaged to fellow country singer Morgan Evans, the musically-inclined couple announced on Christmas Day.

Ballerini, 23, took to social media to reveal her engagement, posting a sweet photo of herself kissing Evans outdoors and proudly holding her new sparkler in focus.

“This morning, 9 months and 13 days later, he got down on one knee in the kitchen while I was burning pancakes and asked me to marry him,” the “Love Me Like You Mean It” hitmaker revealed. “Loving him has been the greatest gift of my life. And now I get to do it for life. #HECALLEDDIBS.”

The Australian singer proposed to Ballerini with a cushion-cut diamond featuring a halo, set on a diamond-encrusted band.

“I had the ring custom made with a diamond I picked from a local designer here in Nashville,” he told People. “I wanted it to be classic and beautiful, like her.”
