Supermodel Chanel Iman will soon be strutting down a very different runway in the upcoming months!

Over the weekend, New York Giants’ wide receiver Sterling Shepard, 24, popped the question to his supermodel girlfriend Chanel Iman, 27, on a rooftop in New York City surrounded by romantic candlelight. The proposal also came one day after the former Victoria’s Secret model’s 27th birthday.

The couple captured the romantic, once-in-a-lifetime moment and posted to Instagram. From the looks of Iman’s proposal photo, Iman was completely surprised, but nonetheless, it was the best surprise of her life. She captioned her sweet proposal to Sterling by saying: “A night full of tears of happiness. I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you @sterl_shep3 you are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything! Can’t wait to be your Mrs. 💎💍.”

Shepard posted the same photo and wrote on his own feed: “The catch of my dreams…can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!”

According to People, Iman and Sterling met at Victor Cruz’s birthday party last November, and you can say the rest was history. Sterling recalls: “I walked up to her and bought her a drink and it was over after that.”

Fun fact about this good-looking couple: not only do they share a deep love for each other, but they also shared a deep love for the Cheesecake Factory. Iman told People, “We live at the Cheesecake Factory, for real.” “Salmon for him, spinach dip for me, and some type of pasta.” And, of course, cheesecake at the end. “We always go in saying were only going to get one dessert but then we always get two because we have different tastes.” [Editor’s note: always get two pieces of cheesecake].

Wedding bells will be ringing for Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard and we couldn’t be happier! Congrats to the happy couple!
