The Dancing On Ice star, 30, confessed she was "speechless" when James got down on one knee with a ring he had designed himself.
She said, "He kissed me on the forehead and said, ‘You do know how much I love you, don’t you? The last three and a half years have been the best years of my life.’
"I just thought he was being romantic because we were in Paris, so I replied: 'Oh babe, that’s so sweet.'
"But then he added: 'And you do know I want to marry
you?' and started to get down on one knee.
"At first I thought he was
joking. I was speechless and stared at him in disbelief. My first thought was: 'Oh my God, he has a ring!’"
England player James, 33, said he designed the ring because he "wanted it to be perfect and for her to love it."
Until they went public in the magazine, the couple revealed that only four other people had known about the engagement - their parents.
Fitness expert Chloe had hinted at the proposal on her Instagram at the end of March with a picture of them kissing in front of the Eiffel Tower.
She wrote, "Obligatory kiss under The Eiffel Tower. Thank you for the most romantic 3 days of my life @jameshask I love you."
Since the news of their engagement was revealed, both has shared equally sweet new photos of them in the City of Love.
Congratulations to the happy couple! We can't wait to hear what Richard and Judy have to say on the engagement!
