“We definitely want to get married as soon as possible,” Burke reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “Originally we wanted to do a destination wedding, so we have different places we’re eyeing.”

Lawrence added that the couple have their eyes on Amanpulo, a private island in the Philippines. “We went with Cheryl’s family over the holidays and it’s just such  magical place,” he gushed.

The future spouses, who dated from February 2007 to February 2008 and rekindled their romance in early 2017, also reflected on the evening of their engagement. Lawrence and Burke were watching the sunset from their Laguna Beach, California, hotel room on Thursday, May 3, when the romantic moment happened.

“I handed her this note that said, ‘I will love you always and forever,” Lawrence recalled. “‘That’s what’s engraved in this ring — I want you to marry me.’”

The Dance Moms coach broke down in tears. “I had chills all over,” she told Us. “It was perfect.”
