Bachelor in Paradise‘s Alisha Aitken-Radburn has spilled all the loved-up details about her engagement to Glenn Smith!

Since Glenn popped the question on Alisha’s birthday in October, the BIP couple has been flooded with questions surrounding the proposal and their future wedding plans.

In order to answer everyone’s burning questions, Alisha jumped on IGTV to give the full rundown of the exciting evening.

Where Did Glenn Propose?

When she first announced their engagement,Alisha revealed that Glenn proposed at South Perth Foreshore.

According to the former political staffer, her partner claimed he had a “surprise activity” planned for the pair before her birthday dinner.

“I was like, ‘Are we going in a seaplane?’ And he’s just like…brushing me off,” Alisha spoke of the leadup to the special moment.

Not expecting him to get down on one knee, Alisha told her followers that she jokingly asked Glenn if he was going to propose!

The 29-year-old said she was in “so much shock” when he actually popped the question that she can’t recall what he said.

“He said some beautiful things… which I don’t remember!” she laughed. “It was along the lines of… ‘Alisha, since we first met in Fiji I’ve known that this is what I want for our future’.

“He really nailed his speech.”

Alisha On Telling Her Mum That She Was Engaged

Alisha revealed that Glenn had told her mum the Saturday prior that he was going to propose.

“He rang her, asked for her blessing… [she] was just so stoked,” she said, adding that her mum was the first call they made following the proposal.

Alisha then made the customary group FaceTime call to her closest friends to flash her new bling.

Despite not orgaising anyone to capture the intimate moment, two passersby recognised the couple and filmed the entire interaction!

“Just serendipitously, these girls who were like ‘Oh, I think that’s Glenn’, just got a video,” she said. “I DM’d them like, ‘Oh my God, send me that video, that’s so special!'”

She then edited a small (albeit grainy) clip of the video into her Q&A before discussing wedding plans.

When Will Glenn and Alisha Officially Tie The Knot?

Alisha, who hosts the Cocktails and Roses podcast with Bachie host Osher Günsberg, admitted she forgot what comes next after getting engaged.

“I’m so excited about the engagement… I genuinely forgot that the whole wedding and marriage is attached to the ring,” she confessed.

While she and Glenn have had some “general chats” about the wedding, “it won’t be for a while”.

Aiming for a 2023 ceremony, Alisha hopes that border restrictions will be a thing of the past by the time it rolls around.

“We’ve seen so many people really struggle with the border situations and it really impacts their plan.”

As for the moment? “I’m going to enjoy being engaged,” Alisha said.

The pair first met during Bachelor in Paradise 2020 after they failed to find love on their respective Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons. Alisha was initially competing for Nick the ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins‘ heart in 2018, while Glenn appeared on The Bachelorette 2019 with Angie Kent.
