Longtime Food Network Star Anne Burrell, 50, confirmed on Instagram last night that she got engaged to her boyfriend of more than two years. Stuart Claxton, 48, proposed to the chef in Cazenovia, NY, where they are self-isolating with her family, she told PEOPLE.

While the Insta announcement didn't provide too much information other than the joy and happiness of it all, Anne told the mag it was a beautiful and low-key proposal:
My mom and Stuart got together and made a plan where he and I were going to have a date night. She set up a beautiful table in her apartment and we just planned a dinner for the two of us. We were having a nice time, and Stuart then starts saying, ‘Oh, this is a good song to put on a playlist for our wedding reception.’ And I’m like, ‘OK, sure. But why are we talking about that now?'
A "weepy" conversation about family ensued and “then Stuart [pulled] a ring out of his pants pocket," she continued. She also noted they have no immediate wedding plans because of the current pandemic, but that they are perfectly content to hold off for now: "We’re just basking in the joy of this because that’s all we can do for the foreseeable future.” That said, Claxton explained he was very happy he'd picked up the ring before the pair started quarantining.
For those unfamiliar with the couples' story, they've been together since 2018 after meeting on the dating app Bumble.
