"We've been dating for three years now, just celebrated our three-year anniversary and that's when he asked me to marry him. I was so surprised, so shocked, I am so, so very happy.

"He's an awesome guy, I love him to death and I'm so looking forward to this new journey of us together. So Anyway, I'm engaged. I'm happy. Thank you all, so so much," she concluded in the clip.

The video message to fans appeared soon after the couple announced their happy news with a statement to PEOPLE. The outlet reported Marek proposed Wednesday night, one day after Roloff's birthday, at the restaurant where they have frequented since their first anniversary.

"I'm excited, I'm so surprised, I'm thrilled!" she told the outlet of the engagement. "I never in a million years thought I'd be getting married again, but I also hoped for it! Now that it's happening, I couldn't be happier or more excited."

Marek also said, "I was very nervous! It had to be a heart-shaped diamond because I knew that's what Amy wanted."

The couple started seeing each other in 2016, after Amy's divorce from Matt Roloff was finalized. Amy and Matt share twin brothers Jeremy and Zach, 29, daughter Molly, 26, and youngest son Jacob, 22. She filed for divorce in 2015 after 27 years of marriage.

"I would definitely love to get married one day," Amy told Us Weekly in May. "But it's not something that I'm intentionally pursuing."


"If I say yes, then that means my whole heart, everything is into it," she added at the time. "I do think [marriage] is forever."

Little People, Big World is expected to return for a new season in 2020.
