Jake Quickenden melted fans' hearts after revealing his romantic proposal to his other half, Sophie Church.
The TV personality, who first found fame on The X Factor, announced his engagement during a relaxing family holiday to Greece, where he'd flown out with his fiancee, their son Leo, and Sophie's son Freddie.
Jake, 32, and Sophie, 27, welcomed son Leo Oliver earlier this year in March, and is the first child they share.
Sophie has seven-year-old son Freddie from a previous relationship, and has been dating Jake since 2018.
All four members of the family flew out to the Greek island of Rhodes last week, and Jake wasted no time keeping his 944K Instagram followers updated.
Not long after landing, Jake posted a snap with Leo at their lavish accommodation, the Gennadi Grand Resort.
He captioned the adorable snap "Making memories with the little man…. Day1.
"Today we will explore the lovely hotel @gennadi_grand_resort rest and enjoy the unbelievable weather, eat good food and relaxation is the mission of this holiday. Much love"
Jake, Sophie and the kids spent plenty of time lounging around the pool and lapping up the sun, and posed for various snaps at the resort's eleven different bars and restaurants.
Prior to his planned-out proposal, Jake teased the engagement on Instaram, posting a cute picture of himself and Sophie dressed up for a meal, with an incredible view of the island in the background.
The joker captioned the post: "SHE SAID…… yes I do think you should have won Xfactor Jake!!
"Wow this place is incredible… can’t remember a time a place actually took my breathe away."
He continued: "Sorry about the holiday spam but it’s nice not just seeing the back garden for once!! @sophie__church looking Mega spicy."
Dancing on Ice winner Jake didn't stop there, flooding his Instagram page with endless cute selfies of himself and his other half, as well as plenty of family snaps of Leo and Freddie.
The star even dedicated a post to Freddie, speaking fondly of his future step-son.
Jake wrote: "Might not be this lads dad but he’s my best mate… what a lovely little boy sophie and his dad have produced…
"Loving, funny and caring, drives me mad sometimes but he will forever be my best mate!! !!"
Not long after, Jake dropped the bombshell that he had in fact proposed to Sophie and that they were engaged.
"SHE SAID YES…. The love of my life the mother to my beautiful Leo and Freddie, I love you so much… this isn’t a drill it’s actually happening", he captioned the post.
A number of images followed, with one showing the couple sharing a kiss only moments after Jake popped the question.
Another, a still from the proposal video which was later posted, showed the star down on one knee as Sophie covered her face in surprise.
Opting for a stunning waterside setting, Jake took his wife-to-be down to a wooden walkway at sunset for the big moment.
The video, which has since attracted a whopping 360K views, was captioned: "Most special moment made even more special the fact Fred and Leo were with us.
"Thanks to the lovely Greek lady who filmed for so long bless her. Love conquers all"
Jake's fans weren't too shocked at his proposal, as the star has teased it was on the way for months.
During an interview with The Sun earlier this year, Jake mentioned a potential engagement.
He said: "It’s [the proposal] in the pipeline, it’s the next step as a couple.
"We have beautiful Leo and Freddie and a house. So obviously it’s going to be coming.
"I’m not going to give too much away on when. I think perfect proposal, I'm fairly simple and so is Sophie, I think that’s why we get on."
