This is almost too cute for words. Singer/songwriter Bohnes and former the Cab frontman Alexander DeLeon announced his engagement with his girlfriend and Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver earlier this afternoon.
He posted a close-up of her face and hand bearing a beautiful engagement ring. The caption simply read “forever. <3”.
On Skriver’s Instagram, she detailed the whole engagement story, and excuse us as we cry. According to her post, DeLeon arranged for the two to visit the northern lights in Finland, as it was something special that Skriver wanted to check off of her bucket list.
DeLeon and Skriver then sat on a frozen lake in Scandinavia by a bonfire with hot cocoa. She noted that the day was Nov. 23, which was perfect as the number 23 is her lucky number.
In fact, DeLeon released his latest EP, 206: Act II, the same day. The EP also includes the track “Aurora Borealis,” which he wrote specifically for Skriver.
“When he got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever. I have never been more sure about anything in my life. You are my biggest adventure. My fairytale come true. My soulmate. My best friend. The love of my life,” she wrote.

I SAID HELL-FREAKIN’-YES!!!! I’M ENGAGED ???????????????? It was a cold November night. Alex had us driven all the way to Finland to see the northern lights. It was my second bucket list number i was checking off in the same week after swimming with Orcas, my favorite animals, in their natural habitat! Little did i know it would soon be my third! He had a bonfire built for me on top of the middle of a frozen lake deep in Scandinavia completed with the full moon shining on our backs and hot cocoa to keep us warm!?!? Like.. is he crazy?!??? For the first time in both of our lives we got to see the northern lights decide to show their dance across the starry night!! It was a full moon… it was on the 23rd (23 is my lucky number).. and the same day as his song “Aurora Borealis”, which was the first song he EVER wrote about me, came out to the world! sometimes the universe just chooses to leave you speechless!!! that was when @bohnes looked over at me. When he got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever.. I have never been more sure about anything in my life. You are my biggest adventure. My fairytale come true. My soulmate. My best friend. The love of my life. So of course it was 1millionxYES!!! Sometimes in life you will meet that one person that makes everything make sense. A person that pushes you to be an even greater version of yourself. A person that makes you not just dream it.. but believe it! Believe in your own abilities to make anything happen! Love is not about compromising yourself. Love is finding someone that only adds to your own joy and shine! Teammates for life!!! @bohnes with you i just knew! You are all that and more. You walked into my life and i have never looked back. I love you. You are MY northern lights and MY Aurora Borealis. <3 -Your Jo
“Teammates for life!!! @bohnes with you i just knew! You are all that and more. You walked into my life and I have never looked back. I love you. You are MY northern lights and MY Aurora Borealis,” Skriver continued.
