Us Weekly confirmed Monday that Dawkins, 45, asked the question over the weekend while the duo attended RiSE in Las Vegas on Friday, October 7.
“During the unified lantern release, Ryan proposed and she said yes!” a source told exclusively U.S at the time, noting that the moment was captured by a private photographer.
The California native later shared the intimate proposal via Instagram, giving her followers a peek at the exact moment Dawkins got down on one knee as the lanterns flew overhead.

“Everything in my world has changed since I met her, she is the love of my life and I wish the world knew the Clare I know,” Dawkins said. “She is one of the strongest women I know and is really a bright spot. I love our life and [am] more than excited about our future.”
Crawley quietly began dating the CEO of Mascot Sports in 2021, but waited until September to publicly announce the romance.
“They met about a year ago and started out as friends,” an insider told exclusively U.S shortly after Crawley posted an Instagram video of some of her and Dawkins’ relationship highlights. “She wanted to keep it private until she was ready to debut him as her new boyfriend.”
The source revealed on Sept. 6 that the Bachelor Winter Games Alum’s “close friends and family have known about it for a few months now, but it was her secret to tell.” During their brief relationship, Crawley and Dawkins have “laid a real solid foundation together,” the insider added.
The former Bachelor education contestant’s engagement to Dawkins came a year after Crawley and ex-fiancé Dale Moss stopped doing it. The exes met in season 16 of the bachelorette and got engaged during a November 2020 episode of the series.
Crawley split from Moss, 34, in January 2021, but reconciled shortly after. The pair broke up permanently in September 2021.
