Scotty McCreery Looks Happier Than Ever in Engagement Photo With His Future Wife
If Scotty McCreery were smiling any bigger in this picture, his face would shatter.
The country singer shared an engagement photo with future wife Gabi Dugal on Instagram, and he's beaming! His arms are around his bride as they gaze at one another happily.
"I can’t wait to do 2018(life) with you," he writes with the image, which was captured by North Carolina photography company Six Foot Photography.
Yes, Scotty Asked Her Parents!
The couple announced their engagement in September shortly after McCreery proposed during a hike up their favorite North Carolina mountain. The "Five More Minutes" singer suggested they venture up their favorite Grandfather Mountain trail, and once at the top, he dropped to a knee and revealed a ring he helped design. McCreery previously said it was a moment he was planning for some time, calling Gabi his "true love." They met in kindergarten and started dating about six years ago when they were seniors at Garner High School in Garner, N.C. They are set to wed in 2018.
"I’ve been planning this moment for so long that it feels surreal for it to have finally happened," he says. "Gabi is the perfect girl and my true love, and I cannot wait to begin building our life together as husband and wife."
Dugal has starred in several of McCreery's music videos including "The Trouble With Girls," "Feelin' It," and "Five More Minutes." The North Carolina native graduated from University of North Carolina and works as a pediatric cardiac nurse at Duke University Hospital.
