Kimberly Perry - Kimberly Perry Engaged
Singer Kimberly Perry is engaged to American baseball player J.P. Arencibia.
An oak tree on The Band Perry singer's parents' property in Greeneville, Tennessee served as a backdrop for the romantic proposal on Monday (30Sep13).
She tells The Tennessean, "(When I first saw the tree I thought), 'If I get proposed to in this life, I hope it happens underneath this tree'."
When Perry's parents called her to come outside, the Toronto Blue Jays catcher was waiting for her underneath the tree.
She continues, "I saw that and I thought, 'This is really happening'."
Perry's mother then sent her back into their house so she could change into her favourite pink dress, and while she was getting ready, she found a letter from her family and a bracelet her grandfather had given her grandmother.
She adds, "I got to read the letter and get dressed and put on my grandfather's bracelet. I came back out on the front porch and he was standing there and he got down on one knee. It was perfect."
Perry and Arencibia started dating a few months after meeting at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida in February, 2012, according to Us Weekly magazine.
The couple plans to marry next year (14).
