Shortly after the 2018 CMA Awards, Luke Combs announced that he had proposed to his girlfriend, Nicole Hocking. Now, she’s sharing a close-up shot of the ring he popped the question with— and the sweet reason it means so much to her.
“Now that I’ve had time to let it sink in a little,” she started alongside a photo of her new bling. “I always said if I was to ever get married, I didn’t want to pick out the ring or go ring shopping. I wanted it to be something that when he saw it, he knew that it was the one.”
Luke opted for an emerald-cut center diamond with a diamond-encrusted band for his bride-to-be.
“I never thought a ring could mean so much to me,” she said. “I love you Luke Albert Combs, I’m going to marry the hell outta you.”
Luke first announced his engagement to Nicole in a post on his Instagram page with a photo of he and Nicole in front of a Maui sunset. “She said yes a while ago but this a better place to take a picture than the kitchen,” he said.
