CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP - 'Bristol & Willow Palin / Joan & Melissa Rivers' - Bristol and Willow Palin reside in Wasilla, Alaska with Bristol's four-year-old son, Tripp, who rules the roost. What Tripp says goes in the Palin household. When Melissa Rivers arrives in Wasilla, she's surprised to see snow on the ground - in May! Meeting Willow and Tripp, Melissa finds it a challenge to deal with Tripp's boyish exuberance, and feels that he needs to have a set daily routine. Aunt Willow is no help when it comes to discipline, and in fact is often the instigator behind Bristol's back. But Melissa is determined to bring structure to the Palin home, so when it's time for the rules change, she immediately initiates a new sticker chart reward system for Tripp. She also applies rules changes to Willow, helping Willow to get one step closer to following her passion in a career. 'Celebrity Wife Swap' is back and all-new on Sundays this summer, kicking things off SUNDAY, JUNE 23 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on ABC. (Photo by Matt Hage/ABC via Getty Images)

Bristol Palin's recent engagement to her fiancé, Sgt. Dakota Meyer, turned out to be quite the showstopping affair.
Bristol, 24, took to her Instagram on Monday to share video of when she got engaged to Dakota -- a 26-year-old Marine vet -- at a Rascal Flatts concert this past Friday. Lead singer Gary LeVox dedicated the band's song "Bless the Broken Road" to the couple, after which Dakota got down on one knee and proposed.
LeVox tells the cheering crowd in the video, "She said yes!"
Bristol and Dakota -- who was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2011 for saving the lives of 36 of his comrades during a 2009 ambush in Afghanistan -- are both obviously overjoyed about their engagement. This will be the first marriage for both of them, though Bristol was previously engaged to Levi Johnston. The former couple have a son together, 6-year-old Tripp.
"For the first time in a long time, I am truly happy and looking forward to living each day for the rest of my life with Bristol," Dakota told NBC News. "I feel like Bristol and Tripp have given me a new lease on life, and I can hardly wait to share it with them."
Meanwhile, Bristol expressed her happiness on Instagram this past Saturday, writing, "Truly the luckiest girl in the world, cannot wait to marry this man!!!!," alongside this pic of the two sharing a sweet smooch.
