"We had a hotel room at the Isle of Capri, overlooking the Mediterranean," he says. "It was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. And it hit me: I wanted to propose to Karly. So I ran to a jewelry store, found the perfect ring and bought it."
According to reports, the ring Chris chose for his 28-year-old fianc� is a large oval-cut diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds and set in a two-tiered white gold band.
After purchasing the ring, he proposed and explained, "We were sitting on the balcony with a bottle of champagne and I put the ring in her glass. I know it sounds cheesy, but it was romantic. As soon as I asked her, she said, 'It's about time!' And we laughed. It was spur of the moment, but it was absolutely perfect."
