During the Fieris' holiday gathering, the Food Network star's eldest son, Hunter Fieri, proposed to his girlfriend, pickleball pro Tara Bernstein — and she said, "yes."

"Coming soon…Mr. & Mrs.Fieri ♥️ #blessed," Hunter, 27, announced on Instagram alongside photos of the romantic pondside proposal.

He also shared a sweet snapshot with Bernstein — and her new ring — as well as several family photos from the Thanksgiving celebration, which included Guy, his wife, Lori, and his youngest son, Ryder, 17.

“[She has] good values and is just a really great person so I couldn't be happier for Hunter,” he told PEOPLE. “This is a big deal. To see him this happy and also to see him have a partner that is as driven as he is, it's perfect.”

The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives star also shared that Bernstein, who he dubbed a "pickleball machine," fits in well with his tight-knit family, and they enjoy some friendly competition. "She plays one-against-two, and beats everybody," he said.

Also in June, Bernstein shared a sweet video highlighting some of the couple's special moments.

"To my partner, my better half, I’m so blessed to have someone as amazing and loving as you in my life," she captioned the video. "Your energy, drive and positive light is contagious - you light up my world. I love you ❤️."

"Family is always the first priority," Guy told PEOPLE in his 2022 cover story. "Most of my friends will [say] I haven't changed. I think it's because when I got into television, I'd already done what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a great dad."

Guy is always teaching the boys the importance of giving back — and leads by example. In October, he put on the “Chefs for Maui” fundraiser dinner to raise over $1.5 million for the Hawaii Restaurant Association and The Salvation Army Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division following the August wildfires.

In May, the Guy's Grocery Games host, along with sons Hunter and Ryder, served food at a Special Olympics event in Northern California. Through the Guy Fieri Foundation, students at Windsor High School worked with the trio to make lunch for around 575 athletes and volunteers.

"If you're the guy that owns the shovel, why wouldn't you help dig the hole?" Guy previously said. "I want to make a positive impact. When it's all over, I just hope people say, 'Guy was good for mankind. Guy helped.' "
