Taking to Instagram, Ruby unveiled footage that James took of him secretly holding Ruby’s engagement rings to the camera while his future wife wasn’t looking. 

The videos show shots of Ruby fast asleep on a plane, the baker taking photos of the New York skyline and of her looking into a mirror, oblivious that James was showcasing her stunning rings in plain sight while her back was turned. 

In the caption of the post, Ruby revealed that just moments before James popped the big question, she suffered from a bout of food poisoning. 

The GBBO star explained, “POV : you’re prancing around New York unaware you’re about to be proposed to. Have deceptively been hiding my hand in the recent the vids because it’s taken me about 3 weeks to tell most of my family whilst it took James a whole 3 minutes”.

⁣”I love this life”, she continued before adding, “(time to start planning a big FAT Indian wedding but all I’m thinking about is the CAKE am I right?!)”.

Fans rushed to the comments to congratulate Ruby and James on their exciting news.
