Twi-hards: Fall hard for this. Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz proclaimed his love for his girlfriend Brittany Gonzales on Tuesday, December 13, by sharing a beautifully-written, sincere post about their relationship.

The actor, 31, uploaded a photo on Instagram of their intertwined hands, alongside a sentimental note detailing their journey. “I’ve been a bit MIA from social media lately and just living life to the fullest. 2016 has been an amazing year and I thank God for all that he has blessed me with,” Lutz wrote. “The biggest blessing has been finding the love of my life and the ONE he has promised me. It’s truly mind blowing to surrender to Him and see the blessings he has in store. Over a year ago, in a season of being single, I wrote a letter to God with all the qualities I truly wanted in my future wife. I stayed strong, I pressed in, I fixed some things I didn’t know I needed to fix and after a period of prayer, patience, and perseverance, He brought her into my life in the most beautiful of ways.”

I’ve been a bit MIA from social media lately and just living life to the fullest. 2016 has been an amazing year and I thank God for all that he has blessed me with. The biggest blessing has been finding the love of my life and the ONE he has promised me. It’s truly mind blowing to surrender to Him and see the blessings he has in store. Over a year ago, in a season of being single, I wrote a letter to God with all the qualities I truly wanted in my future wife. I stayed strong, I pressed in, I fixed some things I didn’t know I needed to fix and after a period of prayer, patience, and perseverance, He brought her into my life in the most beautiful of ways. I now know what true love looks like! I knew it the moment I saw her. She is the love of my life. The one God created for me! She is my best friend and the best teammate to shine brighter with. Thank you for loving me the way that you always do. Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for your beautiful unconditional heart. When you know, you know! I am so blessed to have her in my life and so blessed that I never settled for anything less. For all of you out there looking for love, don’t settle for anything less then His best. Your best friend is right around the corner! Trust me, I know! Thank You God! Thank You My Love! Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Amen!

For Lutz, it was love at first sight. “I knew it the moment I saw her. She is the love of my life,” Lutz continued. “The one God created for me! She is my best friend and the best teammate to shine brighter with. Thank you for loving me the way that you always do. Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for your beautiful unconditional heart.”

He proceeded to share some words of encouragement with his single fans. “When you know, you know! I am so blessed to have her in my life and so blessed that I never settled for anything less,” he continued. “For all of you out there looking for love, don’t settle for anything less then His best. Your best friend is right around the corner! Trust me, I know! Thank You God!”

Lutz, best known for his portrayal of Emmett Cullen in the Twilight franchise, in many ways hinted that he was ready for love within the past year. Last June, the actor told Ryan Seacrest that he was simply waiting for the right girl.

“[I’m] looking for that wifey, Ryan,” Lutz said at the time. “Man, I want to find my potential wife that I can make those memories with and be engaged with for a couple of years and start that life.”

Age, maybe, had something to do with it. “I’m 30! I know it’s young in Hollywood standard, but my mom was like, ‘I need some grandkids!’ I’m in no rush, Ry, but I want to meet that non-crazy girl that are kind of plentiful here in L.A.,” he added.

Thankfully, he was surrounded by quality people who helped bring him to the right girl. “I’m running in some very good circles actually,” he said at the time. “I’m a man of faith so I’ve been trying to put a lot of my time in those circles versus the Hollywood crowd. My values are at the top of my list so might as well find someone who shares in those. I’ve been really searching. Its so hard to find a woman who is career driven with an ambitious attitude, someone who is proactive.”
