Courtney Stodden is engaged! They showed off the blinding engagement ring they received from now-fiancé Chris Sheng on social media.

The “Celebrity Big Brother” alum, who came out as non-binary last month, took to Instagram Sunday to share the happy news. Stodden, 26, also posted a Boomerang revealing their halo-style cushion-cut diamond ring.

"I said yes ... OH and the ring made me gag it's so beautiful," they wrote in the caption, adding hashtags that said "engaged" and "stop Asian hate."

Stodden shared some details about Sheng's proposal with E! News. According to the reality star, they got emotional when he proposed because "everything within the last few weeks has dredged up a lot of past trauma."

"Chris got down on one knee while I was crying my eyes out!" Stodden told the outlet exclusively. "We returned home from a night out in Palm Springs and in between the rosè and pent up feelings, I needed a good cry!"

"It really was such a sweet moment. He reminded me that I'm not alone and said, 'I'm never going anywhere. I'll always be here for you,'" they recalled.

Stodden and Sheng, a 41-year-old entrepreneur who works as a consultant for several startups, have been together for over three years already. He also shared snaps of Stodden with their engagement ring on his Instagram account and recalled the moment he proposed.

"So this happened! Not how I planned but the moment was right," he wrote in the caption.

"On Friday, May 28 I proposed to the love of my life and they said Yes. I feel so blessed and fortunate. We have both grown so much since we first met, and the fact that we have both been able to grow into better, stronger, more secure individuals while still being in a relationship together makes me have faith that this partnership will last a lifetime," he shared.

Sheng went on to say that for the first time, they both found "unconditional love." He also said that while they may not always like each other, they always love and respect one another.

"I promise to always be your rock, support, and shoulder to lean on - no matter what. I got you. Ily," he concluded his post.

Stodden was previously married to actor Doug Hutchinson at the age of 16.

The "Love Addict" star recently told the Daily Beast that many celebrities bullied them after they married Hutchinson, who was 34 years their senior, in 2011, and among them was Chrissy Teigen, who allegedly told them to commit suicide. Stodden added that no one reached out and apologized to them.

Teigen issued a public apology to Stodden on Twitter earlier this month and expressed regret over her past behavior. 

"Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls--t in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that..." Teigen wrote, adding in another post, "...is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel."

"I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!" she added.
