Ximena shared a video clip of the proposal on Instagram and admitted the romantic gesture was better than she had dreamed.
"You are without doubt the love of my life, the man that I dreamed about and that I asked God for...Jay, I love you with all my soul and this is a commitment of life, forever and forever.."
The besotted fiancee on his part posted another photo on Instagram and wrote:
"So happy to call you my Fiancé. @ximenaduque I'm looking forward to calling you my wife. You are so beautiful to me, and I will cherish every moment I get to spend with you. Thank you for making me a better man every single day... Te Amo tanto..."
