Taking to Instagram, Kai shared a series of photos and video clips from his time with Sanam in the villa and thanked fans for their support.

"It's still not sunk in and don't think it will for a while," the reality star wrote. "I feel so grateful for the opportunity but most importantly of all I'm walking away with a girl that's a dream and more.

"She's humble, intelligent, caring, loving and so much more, I'm honestly so excited to start this journey on the outside with her. My real-life Disney princess."

"I have honestly fallen head over heels for her (if you can't tell) and wanted to keep certain intimate things between us for the first time before we tell the world, just so we can saviour the moment more," he said. "This one is a big one for me and I mean this with my full heart. I LOVE YOU TOO SANAM."

Quick to respond to Kai's heartfelt post, Sanam commented: "This is actually the cutest thing ever! I'm so happy we met. I love you."
