Chris Lane Pops the Question To Lauren Bushnell, Stepped Barefoot Into Dog Poop During Proposal

Sorry ladies, Chris Lane is officially off the market.

The country singer proposed to his girlfriend, Bachelor alum Lauren Bushnell, during the couple’s Father’s Day trip to her parents’ house in Oregon.

“I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal,” Lane tells PEOPLE. “So, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard.”

While keeping it at home might have its benefits, the Bushnell backyard also had some surprises.

“As I was about to propose… I stepped in fresh dog poop with my bare feet,” Lane tells PEOPLE laughing. “Not at all how I planned it out in my head!”

Congrats to the happy couple.
