Jason Kennedy, Lauren Scruggs Engaged
Kennedy asked Scruggs to marry him Friday night in Scruggs’ hometown of Dallas with her friends and family present, reported E! News. When Scruggs walked out to her balcony, down below was Kennedy standing in front of dozens of candles set up to spell, “Will You Marry Me?”
When Scruggs went down to meet Kennedy, he presented her with a Jennifer Meyer diamond ring and she said “yes.”
"It's a blur but I can't stop smiling,” Kennedy told E!. “She told me I couldn't surprise her, but I got her good. This is the best night of my life.”
Kennedy and Scruggs began dating in early summer of 2013, a couple years after the former model was seriously injured in a propeller accident. As a result of the incident, Scruggs lost her left arm and eye. Since her accident, she’s worked as a fashion blogger and penned the memoir Still Lolo.
Scruggs, who admitted in Still Lolo she'd wondered if she’d find a man to marry her following her accident, was stunned by Kennedy’s surprise proposal. "I walk in and my apartment is full of tulips, this little like path to the patio,'' Scruggs said on Today. "He was outside in the grass, and there were just candles, spelling out 'Will you marry me?' And he was like, 'Will you come down here? I want to ask you a question.' I was just seriously shocked."
"I love her so much,” added Kennedy. “And this is just the beginning for both of us."
