Dove Cameron has publicly spoken out about her engagement and now has given details about how Ryan McCartan popped the question, how he got her family’s permission, and when they plan on making it official.

In a new interview, the Liv and Maddie actress reveals that when Ryan finally did propose, “he didn't hint at it. It was very spur-of-the-moment. It was perfect."

She continued saying “We were both very clear with each other that it was like, 'I know you're my person. You know you're my person. There's nobody else, but I knew he wanted to get married young – he had told me that. He was like, 'That's what I want as my life plan.'"

OMG! It’s so sweet how they just knew right off the bat they were right for one another!

She added, “He had the permission sort of after the first year that we were together. My mom was like, 'If you don't marry him, something's wrong with you!' My whole family was like, 'We like him more than you, so figure it out.' "

We love how her family also knew Ryan was the guy for her, and they seem to adore him just as much as she! So when are the two officially going to get married? Dove said, “I'm thinking by the time we'll get married, he'll be 25, I'll be 23. It'll be a while because we have projects lined up. I don't want to hate the process. I want to take my time."

It’s nice to see the two aren’t rushing to the altar just yet, and taking their time to make sure their special day will be everything they dreamed of and more. We can’t wait!
