"I'm the luckiest girl in the world!", gushes Good Morning America's Ginger Zee following the news of her engagement with Ben Aaron.

GMA's popular weather anchor found the engagement ring hidden in the banana pudding container. As soon as she saw the ring, Ben Aaron popped the big question.

"I had no idea! It was 2:30 p.m.- I had workout clothes on and the construction crew working on the fountain burst into applause-so cute", said Ginger Zee after the momentous occasion.
