A Bachelorette no more!

The influencer announced her engagement to Grant Troutt on Aug. 1, which comes two-and-a-half years after she rose (pun intended) to fame on Season 24 of The Bachelorette.

Who is Madison Prewett dating? She's now engaged to Grant Troutt.

The 26-year-old former college basketball player got engaged to her boyfriend of less than a year, Grant Michael Troutt, in Palm Beach, Fla. on July 31.

Madi described how the proposal happened during her chat with People.

"Grant was waiting for me and led me out to the beach, where he had candles and flowers and a Bible with my new name on it," she said. "And the ring of my dreams!"

Before he proposed, Grant met with Madi's loved ones several times to make sure that the details of the engagement would be perfect. He changed his plans a few times, but he ultimately settled on a beachfront proposal.

"He actually was supposed to come with me and my friends to Florida but he got sick and wasn't able to make it. I thought we were celebrating one of our friend's birthdays. I was told we were taking birthday pictures on the beach and when I came down, my best friend led me into the bathroom where my mom and sisters were with the dress I wanted to get engaged in..." she said. "In that moment, I knew."

Grant popped the question with an oval-cut diamond sitting on a pavé ring. Madi and Grant are planning on having a shorter engagement, and they told People that they want a "chic and classy wedding."

The couple first went public with their romance by sharing photos with one another on Instagram in May.

"So now y'all know, I got the realist G in town. Grant Michael Troutt, so full of passion and purpose and joy, I am proud I get to do life with someone who loves Jesus and people like you do," Madi wrote in a caption on her page. "The past 5 months have been the best and wildest adventure. Full of highs and lows but there's nobody else in the world I'd rather do life with."

Now, the two are "do[ing] life" together forever!

Who is Grant Troutt? He's the son of billionaire Kenny Troutt.

Madi's new fiancé, who is a public speaker and minister, is the son of Lisa Copeland and Kenny Troutt. Grant's father founded Excel Communications, a long-distance telecommunications company. In 1998, Kenny sold the company to Teleglobe for a cool $3.5 billion.

According to Forbes, Madi's future father-in-law has an estimated net worth of $1.5 billion. Madi and the 26-year-old likely won't be on a tight wedding budget like many other twenty-somethings, then.

Kenny and Lisa are also the parents of Preston and Savannah Trout.

Madi was a finalist on Peter Weber's season of 'The Bachelor.'

As fans of The Bachelor will remember, Madi formed a strong connection with Pilot Pete early on in Season 24, but she struggled with balancing her faith and his connections with the other women.

Madi ultimately determined that she couldn't see a future with Peter, and she left the show in the finale, before the final rose ceremony.

Though Peter later proposed to Hannah Ann Sluss, he reconnected with Madi after he called off his engagement post-filming. Following their second split, Peter moved on with fellow contestant, Kelley Flanagan, while Madi was rumored to be dating NBA star Michael Porter Jr.

In the spring of 2022, Madi went public with Grant. The rest, as they say, is history.

Now that Madi has officially found her Prince Charming, you may want to tune in as Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey look for the loves of their lives.

New episodes of The Bachelorette air on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. You can also stream the series on Hulu.
