Kyle Sandilands popped the question to his girlfriend of two years Tegan Kynaston while on vacation in Port Douglas over the Christmas break.
And the radio presenter, 50, opened up about his extravagant proposal on his first day back on The Kyle and Jackie O Show Monday.
Kyle explained he rented a venue and hosted fireworks, candles and a lavish meal before getting down on his knees – but admitted not everything went to plan.

Kyle had arranged for singer-songwriter Conrad Sewell to arrive from overseas and perform the couple’s favorite song for their marriage proposal.
“But two days before the proposal, Conrad called me and he was very upset because he had caught Covid,” the KIIS FM host said.
“I couldn’t reschedule it because there were chefs, fireworks and I had rented a venue.”
Kyle decided to go ahead with the proposal without live music and told Tegan, 35, that they were going to a pop-up art exhibit.

“When we arrived, we walked out, I opened the door and they played Conrad’s song. There were candles and dim lighting,” he said.
Then, surrounded by candles and their friends, Kyle got down on one knee and asked Tegan to marry him.
He gave his girlfriend a large oval diamond ring.
After saying yes, they had a romantic dinner with Australian ingredients including crocodile, kangaroo and dried fig kafta.
To end the evening, the newly engaged couple watched a fireworks display with their friends.

Tegan is Director of Communications for King Kyle Pty Ltd of Sandilands.
They went public with their romance on New Year’s Eve in 2019, when Tegan shared a photo of herself kissing Kyle in front of Sydney Harbor Bridge.
Two months earlier, she denied rumors that she was dating the KIIS FM presenter.
Kyle began dating Tegan after his split from longtime girlfriend Imogen Anthony.
The radio titan announced his split from Imogen after eight years together live on The Kyle and Jackie O Show in November 2019.
He told listeners that the couple “hadn’t lived together” in months and that their relationship had just “run its course”.
“We haven’t been together for several months now. Unfortunately, that is taking its course,” he said.

Kyle revealed earlier this month that he hasn’t ruled out having kids with Tegan.
“It’s certainly not out of place,” he told The Daily Telegraph.
“It was never really on my priority list and I think it’s just because I was that kid who dragged my childhood issues from my parents’ divorce and this and that.”
He admitted he wasn’t always interested in having children, but came up with the idea after spending time with other parents, including John Ibrahim and his partner Sarah Budge.

The KIIS 106.5 radio star also recently confirmed he was given the ‘green light’ after undergoing fertility tests.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia last month, Kyle said: “I was really nervous [about the fertility test] until he came back saying, “Yeah, it’s okay, it’s okay.”
‘[Tegan] is all good, of course. She is a young and healthy woman. It is therefore good to know that all is well in this area so as not to interfere with future projects.
‘[I wasn’t thinking about kids] because I was focused on work. But all my friends have kids, and Tegan’s family and friends all have kids. And we’re like the only BBQ couple that don’t have kids, we got FOMO[fearofmissingout'[peurderaterquelquechose[fearofmissingout’
