The future spouses, who dated from February 2007 to February 2008 and rekindled their romance in early 2017, also reflected on the evening of their engagement. Lawrence and Burke were watching the sunset from their Laguna Beach, California, hotel room on Thursday, May 3, when the romantic moment happened.

“I handed her this note that said, ‘I will love you always and forever,” Lawrence recalled. “‘That’s what’s engraved in this ring — I want you to marry me.’”

The Dance Moms coach broke down in tears. “I had chills all over,” she told Us. “It was perfect."

Burke took to Instagram after Lawrence got down on one knee to show off her diamond ring. “OMG! So far so good for 34 #amilliontimesyes,” she captioned a sweet snapshot of Lawrence kissing her cheek.
