It’s going to be wedded bliss for Rachel Zoe’s former assistant Jeremiah Brent and celebrity interior designer Nate Berkus.

The couple, who have been dating for eight months, got engaged on Monday at the top of Peru’s Machu Picchu, US Magazine reports.

Word is that Jeremiah, who appeared opposite Zoe on last season’s The Rachel Zoe Project, was majorly stunned at the proposal, particularly since the duo’s travel was work-related. Nate and Jeremiah were in the South America for a project that Nate is doing with home décor flash sale site One Kings Lane. Talk about a surprise!

The New York Post also reports that the lovely couple is hoping to become daddies soon, with the help of a surrogate. Jeremiah previously said that he’s hoping for a son.

“I wouldn’t know how to deal with a little girl,” he previously said, according to The Post.

It’s been a long road to love for Nate. In 2004, he lost his longtime partner Fernando Bengochea in the massive tsunami while on vacation in Sri Lanka. Here’s to a happy ending!
