He let the cat out of the bag via his Instagram page on Thursday.
He wrote: “We went to Chicago this weekend and had a wonderful dinner at Smyth. I proposed to @miakhalifa and she said YES! The ring was hidden in a bowl of dried ingredients and came out as a “new serving”. Mia was to curious and to eager to taste so she started to eat the inedible ingredients. I told her not do it and then I put the ring on the finger. I love you so much❤️ Thank you @chefjohnshields and team for a really good night and for making this happen. 💍💑 #happydays”
Also reacting, Mia Khalifa took to her social media pages to also announce her engagement.
She wrote: “I’m the luckiest girl in the world and I said “JA!” Vi är förlovade! !”
“Thank you a million times over for the entire team at @smythchicago for helping @robertsandberg propose 😭♥️ this trip and dinner was supposed to celebrate him getting his visa! Robert has planted the seed so deep in my mind for so long that he hates restaurant proposals so I never, EVER, saw this coming. I love y’all so much! Thank you! @smythchicago @chefjohnshields @officialchrisgerber @richieribando @povdejackee #StockholmSyndrome”
