Stevin John is engaged!

Earlier this week, the 33-year-old children's entertainer — the content creator and actor behind Blippi — announced that he proposed to his now-fiancée Alyssa Ingham.

Sharing a series of snapshots from the special moment (which were taken on a beach in Malibu, California, by photographer Matthew Takes), John is seen down on one knee in one picture and jumping for joy with Ingham in another.

"I got upgraded from boyfriend to fiancé!" John wrote alongside his post. "@alyssaingham I'm so excited to spend the rest of my life with you!"

On her respective Instagram page, Ingham shared the same set of pics, writing alongside her own post, "2015-forever 🤍🥺 I love you @stevinwjohn."

In the comment section of his post, John received an outpouring of love from fans who wished him and Ingham well on their journey to marriage. "Congratulations you guys!!! 🎉🎉 Beautiful couple! And those pictures are perfection!" one fan wrote, as another joked, "Man all those moms are gonna be heartbroken now 😂 Congratulations."

John's Blippi character first broke into the YouTube scene back in 2014, and he has since crafted countless videos on the website educating children on a variety of topics, including colors and letters. The show is now available to stream on platforms like Hulu and Amazon Prime.

In November 2020, Ingham posed beside John and their pup Lyno on Instagram as she announced they welcomed another furry addition into their family. "Meet our newest family member (and Lyno's new bff) Lily 🐾 Lily is a 1½ year old boxer-pitbull mix and we love her soo much 🖤," Ingham wrote alongside the sweet family snapshot.

John told The Spinoff back in 2018 that he would maybe want kids of his own sometime "down the road." He also told the outlet about why Blippi became so popular.

"Watching Blippi become part of children's lives and so in turn it became a part of their families' lives. Blippi is continuing to grow because these children really love Blippi, and now their parents are talking about it and spreading the love," he said. "... I believe that children are super smart and they have good intuition. I think they can tell that Blippi is genuine and I have fun doing what I do. That's one huge thing I have that big companies just can't hire an actor to do."
