Speaking exclusively to HELLO! about the moment, Maeva added: "I did my wish which was, 'I really hope James is going to propose to me soon,'" she recalls. "And then I opened my eyes and he was there on one knee. I was thinking 'Wow, this is it! Is this real?' It was everything I had ever wanted."

Maeva immediately accepted the 2.5 carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring that James had designed and the couple are now happier than ever.

"It feels like I have everything I have ever wanted – it's that secure feeling that this is my woman, forever," James says. "I feel protected - being engaged to the man of my dreams is amazing. It's a different love, it's stronger, it's deeper. I feel safe," Maeva adds.
