Property Brothers star Drew Scott got engaged over the holidays, and the HGTV star is opening up about his romantic proposal.

For the big moment, Scott made sure to plan ahead, coming up with a super-romantic evening designed around girlfriend Linda Phan's favorite things. From recording a cover of Train's "Marry Me," to designing a custom Dr. Seuss cake, Scott planned the proposal dinner to a tee.

"I recorded that song in the studio and the whole plan was that, in the restaurant when it comes [time for] dessert, I wanted that to play over the speakers," Scott recently told ET's Cameron Mathison.

"She's also a Dr. Seuss freak, and her favorite book is Oh The Places You'll Go," the 38-year-old reality star explained. "So I made that as a big cake and on the top was a Dr. Seuss character holding the ring. She had ordered carrot cake, but instead this came out, that song played and I got down on one knee. But Linda... had no idea it was coming. She was so confused. She's like, 'What? I ordered carrot cake.'"

"I was so shocked," Phan recalled.

While Scott and Phan dated for six years before getting engaged, he said he always planned on popping the question, adding, "I knew the moment I saw [her]."

Now that they're engaged, the wedding planning has commenced, and the couple joked that they've already encountered a few unexpected speed bumps.

"We thought we had a date set. We actually were like, 'You know, our very first date that we ever had was Jan. 21, way back six years ago, [why don't we] do that date?' Scott recounted. "The next day a friend of ours called, 'Hey, we just set our wedding [for] Jan. 27.'"

"We want to do destination. We want to travel somewhere. I want to be somewhere warm, and we want to have all of our family and friends with us," Scott continued. "I just don't want to do that right before another friend's wedding. I feel like that'd be a jerk move."
