Chris Hardwick may have nabbed a Creative Arts Emmy Award on Saturday night, but he got an even bigger prize after the award show ... a new fiance!

The Nerdist CEO popped the question to girlfriend Lydia Hearst, and he took to Instagram to share the happy news with his fans.

"IT'S OFFICIAL!!! What an absolutely perfect and amazing night!! I love this woman with all my heart," he wrote.

Hearst shared her own special message, writing, "I said YES!!!!!! Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite. You completely swept me off my feet. You have shown me what it feels like to be loved and I love you with all my heart. My life is better because you are in it @nerdist."

Too cute!

Hardwick also posted a picture of his fiance's stunning engagement ring, which was passed down by Hearst's grandmother.

The couple started dating after the 30-year-old heiress split from actor Kevin Connolly in 2014.

Congrats!
