Congratulations are in order for Chad Gilbert and Hayley Williams! The New Found Glory guitarist popped the question to his longtime love on Christmas, but waited until New Year’s Eve to share the big news!

Hayley Williams, 26, got a very special Christmas gift in 2014. The Paramore singer announced on New Year’s Eve that after six years of dating New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert, 33, she is now engaged! The guitarist proposed on Christmas, but the couple decided to hold off until the next big holiday to make the big announcement.

Tis the season to get engaged!

Haley tweeted an adorable photoshopped wedding pic with Chad with the caption, “Getting married.” Chad took to Instagram to share the news.

Plenty of celebs got engaged over the holidays, but Chad and Hayley were crafty and kept their engagement under wraps until New Year’s Eve!

Chad and Hayley both seem to be so enthusiastic about their relationship. The bride-to-be followed up her announcement with the tweet, “Can’t even keep up w/ the sweet texts, emails, tweets. Thx so much yall! We’re so psyched! See yall in 2015.”

Both couples have their own music careers to focus on within their perspective bands, but they’ve managed to keep each other a priority.

Tour life may get tough, but Hayley told Spin magazine, “We always, always tour…We both love what we do and we both support each other and love that we’re doing the thing that we enjoy.” So sweet!
