Lauren Scruggs -- the model who lost her left hand and suffered severe facial injuries after walking into a plane propeller -- thought she would never find love again, but three years after the accident, she's proven herself wrong.

On May 30, Scruggs' boyfriend and E! News correspondent Jason Kennedy flew to the model's home in Dallas and popped the question by spelling out "Will you marry me" in candles on the lawn beneath her balcony. He then posted the pic on Instagram, after Scruggs said "yes."

It was in 2011 that the 26-year-old almost lost her life, after disembarking from a plane and accidentally walking into the propeller. She penned a book about the tragic accident called "Still LoLo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family's Journey of Hope" in which she wrote, "I was sure no guy would ever think I was attractive again, much less would want to marry me.''

She was wrong. Scruggs and Kennedy began dating after the E! host saw Scruggs' interview on Dateline. They confirmed their relationship in July 2013. Nearly one year later, they're taking the next step and Scruggs couldn't be happier.

"Possibly the best night of my life. I love you beyond," Scruggs wrote on Instagram, while showing off her new engagement ring.
