Love is in the air!
In fact, the funny man proposed following the awards show where Chris took home the Best Creative Achievement In Interactive Media (Social TV Experience) Emmy for @midnight With Chris Hardwick. Way to slay.
The Nerdist CEO took to Instagram to confirm his happy news to his many followers.
My biggest win of the night was actually @lydiahearst saying YES!!!! This ring belonged to her grandmother Catherine Hearst and @patriciahearst has graciously and wonderfully passed it down to me to give to Lydia. IT’S OFFICIAL!!! What an absolutely perfect and amazing night!! I love this woman with all my heart….#YesThisMeansWhatYouThinkItMeansA photo posted by Chris Hardwick (@nerdist) on Sep 12, 2015 at 11:24pm PDT
All snazzed up on the red carpet! @lydiahearst had NO IDEA what I was planning for later. I told her there was a small Emmy after party at the Chateau Marmont. When we got up to the room I had to confess that I had tricked her when I pulled out the room key. I opened the door and the room was filled with wild flower bouquets and purple rose petals all over the floor (apologies to the housekeeping dept). And then…IT HAPPENED. I pulled out a candy ring (the one she’s getting for real is in NY and needs to be sized). She affirmed that this union was mutually agreeable by bursting into tears. Then there was kissing and cry breath. It was a scene so romantic, I’m surprised a Rachel McAdams movie didn’t break out around it. I’m guessing it will ultimately be the only Hearst wedding whose registry includes @thinkgeek.

Whoa! Look at that rock.
Color us jealous.
The duo first made their debut as a couple in December 2014 at the GQ Men Of The Year party in El Lay — where they even displayed some red carpet PDA. Aww!
Though this isn’t the first A-list relationship for either member of the newly engaged couple. Previously, the TV host was linked to model Chloe Dykstra. Hardwick also had a long-term relationship with Janet Varney and was once engaged to Jacinda Barrett from the Real World. Hmm, looks like somebody loves love.
Miz Hearst once dated Entourage‘s Kevin Connolly but ultimately called it quits back in May 2014. But hey, everything happens for a reason.
The publishing titan’s granddaughter also took to the picture sharing site to gush about her recent engagement.
I said YES!!!!!! ├░┼╕ΓÇÖ┬ì Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite. You completely swept me off my feet. You have shown me what it feels like to be loved and I love you with all my heart. My life is better because you are in it @nerdist.A photo posted by Lydia Hearst ├░┼╕ΓÇÖΓÇ╣ (@lydiahearst) on Sep 12, 2015 at 11:21pm PDT
Congratulations to both Chris and Lydia! We hope these two can make it past industry standards!
