Country singer Kellie Pickler was so bowled over by fiance Kyle Jacobs’ beachside proposal on June 23 that she nearly lost her engagement ring — just moments after receiving it. “We weren’t paying attention to the ring at all,” admitted Pickler to PEOPLE. “After I got myself together, Kyle was looking around for the ring and thought I lost it. It was in my lap but he said, ‘I thought we lost it in the sand.’ But then he picked it up and put it on my finger and we cried again and laughed again. It was the most spiritual, incredible, amazing day.” While the rest of us were excited to get a peek at her new sparkler, which the season-five American Idol star was spotted wearing on Saturday during an interview with Raleigh’s 94.7 QDR, Pickler seems to be keeping her priorities straight, focusing on her love. “I could care less if it was a Cracker Jack ring,” declared the bride-to-be. “As long as I get to spend the rest of my life with [Kyle] and wake up every morning and see him, I don’t care.” –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley; reporting by Eileen Finan
