WEST MONROE, La., Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Rebecca Robertson and boyfriend John Reed Loflin are engaged.

The 27-year-old reality star announced the news with a photo Saturday on Instagram, writing, "Our story starts here...... I said yes to my best friend for life." She later added, "After long time of patiently searching, I found the ultimate gem // Jeremiah 29:11."

"We had been walking [on the beach shell-hunting] for about an hour, and I saw this beautiful swirly shell hidden in the sand, and the ring was also hiding in there," Robertson told Us Weekly. "He got on his one knee as I pulled the ring out and he said, 'I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you spend the rest of your life with me?'"

"We are thinking nine months to a year [before the wedding]," she revealed. "We are beyond happy and thankful to our family for leading up to this chapter of our lives, and we are so excited to see what God has in store for our future."

Robertson and Loflin have been together since October 2014. The reality star told the magazine she had "no idea" her beau was planning to propose, saying her friends and family "did a really good job hiding" his intentions.

Robertson is the eldest child of Willie Robertson and Korie Robertson, who also share John Luke, Sadie, Willie, Jr., and Bella. The couple adopted Robertson in 2004, and announced they are adopting another child Sunday on Instagram.

"We've had lots of questions about the cute kid popping up in our photos lately," Korie wrote. "We are excited to be in the process of adopting a new son! He's been with us since May, but we wanted some privacy and time for him and our family to bond before telling the world."
