Elle King attends the VH1 Trailblazer Honors held at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre on Feb. 20, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Congratulations are in order for Elle King and her new fiancé Dan Tooker, who recently got engaged.

The 31-year-old soul-singer took to Instagram on Friday (Oct. 9) to share the romantic story of the couple's mountaintop proposal in New Mexico, noting that she and Tooker had the same plan in mind about popping the big question.

"Today is our 1 year anniversary. We rode horses up a mountain to go gold panning. I had a ring in my pocket and I was going to toss it in the gold pan and propose to @tattooker ... but of course, my soulmate beat me to the punch and proposed to me the exact same way," King captioned the post. "So I immediately got down on my knee too. I love you Daniel. 1 year down, forever to go. I said Yes by the way and so did he!"

The "Ex's & Oh's" singer's post included numerous photos from the experience, including a shot of the couple smooching on their horses and a close-up of her beautiful engagement ring.

She also shared a video from the proposal, where she excitedly announced, "Dan just proposed to me the same way I proposed to him!" Tooker, a tattoo artist, playfully added, "Beat her to it."

King, the daughter of comedian Rob Schneider, was previously married to Andrew Ferguson. The two secretly wed just three weeks after meeting in 2016.
