Former “MythBusters” host Grant Imahara popped the question to his longtime partner Jennifer Newman on Wednesday night.

Guests thought they were just attending a surprise birthday party for Newman, but little did they know that Imahara was going to propose.

The vintage engagement ring, which he found at an antique dealer in San Francisco, weighs in at 1.56 carats and costs around $20,000.

Imahara took to Twitter to express his elation.

WE HAVE A YES. Just got engaged to @Jennernugen!!!” his first tweet read.

In another similar post, Imahara included a photo of him and his soon-to-be wife, accompanied with the caption: “Proposed to @Jennernugen last night and she said yes!

Imahara was a part of the Emmy-nominated “MythBusters” team for over 10 years before the Discovery channel decided in 2014 to drop him, along with co-hosts and fan favorites Kari Byron and Tory Belleci, the Daily Mail reported.
