He took to Instagram a few hours after his big win and shared the whole story - down to where he got that MASSIVE ring. 

"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....#YesThisMeansWhatYouThinkItMeans"

Ahead of the ceremony, which will air on FXX Saturday September 19th, Chris and Lydia walked the red carpet acting very much the happy couple.

BIGGEST MISTAKE: Jessica Simpson Trashes Nick Lachey

Hearst is the great-grandaughter of publishing powerhouse William Randolph Hearst and the daughter of the no longer brainwashed (pardoned) bank robber Patty Hearst

She and Hardwick have been dating since 2014, after Chris' split from Chloe Dykstra the previous July.

Congratulations from CRI!
