Chad Gilbert (New Found Glory) celebrates engagement in heartfelt post
Gilbert reflected on the whirlwind of 2019 before ending saying he’s “standing on top of a fricken mountain.”
2019 has been one heck of a year. Many ups but some real lows. Feel like I’ve been tossed around in a washing machine but I’ve come out wiser, stronger, and full of thankfulness (and cleaner hah). Here I am now ending the year standing on top of a fricken mountain. There are so many things I could try to say to express how I feel about @lisacimorelli in this post but it would just be a failed attempt. To all my friends out there. I did it! Buy me a coffee. Look out for Team Gilbert 2020
Coining Team Gilbert, the couple have been officially dating for a little under two years. Gilbert was previously married to Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams and announced their split in July 2017.
Cimorelli, who joins her five sisters as a member of Cimorelli, also took to her social media to celebrate the engagement which happened earlier in the week.
The bride-to-be explained the couple was on a walk Tuesday when Gilbert proposed. Upon returning to their home, Cimorelli was surprised with a celebration with family.
Check out her recount of the evening with photos and videos below.

SURPRISE!!!!!!! We got ENGAGED on Tuesday!!!!! ????❤️ I’ve been super sick and did not have the energy to even make an Instagram post but also I kinda loved keeping it private for a few days :) we are so happy to be taking this step together and have been enjoying the last few days with our families and friends.
He asked me while we were on a walk Tuesday night because we’ve always really enjoyed our walks together and had some of our best conversations during our night time strolls. It was so sweet, very intimate and absolutely perfect ?
Also I had just come from getting a massage so I was a mess in my sweatpants but it was so real ??
I got to see my family and friends too at a little surprise celebration after he asked me!! It was so perfect, exactly what I wanted. He knew how much that meant to me to have everyone there ?❤️
I am so happy to be marrying my best friend!!! We’ve had so much fun and grown so much together the last two years and I can’t wait to see what our future holds. I’m so happy to be your frickin fiancé and I can’t wait to get married!!! TEAM GILBERT FOR LIFE!!!!!!!! ???❤️?
Congratulations to the happy couple!
