Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula are all set to get married! The Summer House Alum has become engaged to his loving girlfriend after two years of dating.
The couple, who first met in 2015 and starred on the Bravo reality show, shared their engagement news with PEOPLE on Monday, September 24.
Amanda, 27, told the publication,
It's surreal. Aside from how funny and sexy he is, Kyle's my best friend. He's the person I go to for everything. And he forces me to be a better person in different ways by pushing me outside of my comfort zone. Life with him is exciting. And to think he wants to spend the rest our his life with me and I feel the same way, it's just a real happy feeling.
Kyle, for his part, also spoke about his new fiancée; he called Amanda "the most authentic, genuine person I've ever met."
I really look up to her. She’s incredibly selfless, thoughtful, generous and accommodating. She puts family and friends as the top priority, and bends over backwards for the people that are important to her. That’s what you look for in someone you want to spend the rest of your life with. She’s a hell of a partner.
Kyle proposed his lady with a two-and-a-half carat diamond engagement ring, which was custom made by Stephanie Gottlieb; he is a New York-based jewelry designer Amanda had admired.
Admitting that she didn't expect her boyfriend would pop the question for another year, Amanda explained,
I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted, but the exact ring didn’t exist anywhere that I could find visually, so I gave him a few examples that he could choose from. He ended up designing exactly what I wished.
It’s beautiful. He did a good job. I look down at it and still can’t believe it’s my ring on my finger. When friends would get engaged in the past, I’d try their rings and you sort of get an idea about what it would be like if it was yours. But it’s so different when it happens. … I can’t stop staring at it.
Kyle then added,
I’m just relieved. I kind of felt like I was living a lie for several months because I knew I was going to propose but I wanted to keep things secret, catch her off guard, and completely surprise her — all of which I managed to pull off.
They also shared their wedding plans with the outlet, with Amanda saying,
We'll probably stay on the East Coast, and it'll probably be in a season other than the summer, because the summer's crazy for us and it gets really hot. Step one is to hire a wedding planner, map out when we need to do things by, set a date, and then back track from there.
The adorable couple is currently on a vacation to Barcelona, where they've been sharing sweet photos on Instagram, in which the bride-to-be shows off her stunning sparkler.
