Scotty McCreery proposes to girlfriend Gabi Dugal
On Tuesday (Sept. 26) American country singer Scotty McCreery finally proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, while on a hike near Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina.
Here’s how it went down: McCreery, 23, invited Dugal to go on a hike. When they reached the top of a mountain, McCreery dropped to one knee and asked Dugal to marry him. He gave her a ring that he helped design specifically for her.
“I’ve been planning this moment for so long that it feels surreal for it to have finally happened,,” McCreery said according to WRAL in Raleigh, N.C. “Gabi is the perfect girl and my true love, and I cannot wait to begin building our life together as husband and wife.”
Of course, she said yes. The couple met in kindergarten while growing up in Garner, North Carolina. When they were young, Dugal used to write “Mrs. Gabi McCreery” — with a lot of hearts — in her diary. They began dating nearly six years ago during their senior year of high school.
