Maria Menounos Is Engaged - And Her Ring Is AMAZING!

After 19 years together, she deserves the best ring in the world! This couple is definitely in the running for the world's longest pre-engagement relationship.

At least there won't be any surprises for Maria Menounos and fiance Keven Undergaro - except for the proposal, that is. He proposed to her live on The Howard Stern Show!

When Howard Stern handed him the microphone, Maria got suspicious.

He said, "It was so emotional to hear you say everything, because listening to everything you said there, back when were in the green room talking about what you've been through, I've been through, too... when we wanted to be together, we couldn't because people didn't want us together. And then it was literally like the last 17 or 18 years of us fighting together, and me defending her as best I could...It reminds me just how much I do love you, and although I said that this isn't a proposal, I want to ask you something. Would you make me the happiest man on earth, and would you marry me?"

Her response? "Are you friggin' kidding me right now? Is this a joke?"

"It's not a joke," Keven said. "This I wouldn't joke about. I love you so much, and this show's meant so much to both of us." He went on to explain that the pair used to listen to the show, "on a mattress" years ago, when he told her, "'One day you will be on that show and you will be a star and here you are'...Why not make it official now? Will you honey? Will you accept?"

Obviously, she said yes!

But enough about this mushy stuff.... let's get to the ring! It's a beautiful custom engagement ring designed by French jeweler Jean Dousset. The brilliant cut center-stone is surrounded by a halo of 220 smaller diamonds.

It's official. Maria Menounos now has it all, and she's going to make the most beautiful bride!
