Josphine Skriver is engaged to her boyfriend Alex DeLeon, a singer-songwriter also known as Bohnes. The Victoria’s Secret Angel made the announcement on Instagram this morning, sharing photos from her future husband’s picturesque proposal in Finland under the northern lights.
“I SAID HELL-FREAKIN’-YES!!!!” the 25-year-old model excitedly wrote on Instagram.
It turns out DeLeon took Skriver up to Finland to see the northern lights, one of the items on her bucket list, the Angel explained in her post. The proposal took place on November 23rd, the anniversary of when DeLeon released his song “Aurora Borealis” (another name for the northern lights), his first-ever composition about Skriver. Plus, 23 is the model’s lucky number.
The romantic details continue: DeLeon had a bonfire built in the middle of a frozen lake, there was a full moon, there was even some hot cocoa prepared for the couple.
“Sometimes the universe just chooses to leave you speechless!!!” Skriver recalled in her Instagram post. “That was when @bohnes looked over at me. When he got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever.. I have never been more sure about anything in my life.”
The photos show the couple bundled up in wintery apparel surrounded by ice and snowy mountains. Skriver went for a bright look in a neon orange parka and beanie, but her emerald-cut diamond engagement ring was hard to miss.
DeLeon also shared a closeup of the sparkler on his own Instagram account.
Weeks before trekking to Finland for a surprise proposal, Skriver was in New York City walking the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and DeLeon was there to cheer her on. See if you can catch him in the audience when the runway spectacle is broadcast on ABC on Sunday, December 2.
