And she of course said yes!

Brad Womack first appeared on The Bachelor in 2007 and famously rejected the two final contestants.

But on tonight's season finale, the 38-year-old heartbreaker presented his final rose - and Neil Lane diamond engagement ring - to 24-year-old Emily Maynard. Runner up Chantal O'Brien left in tears.

Womack said the following to single mom Maynard in Cape Town, South Africa:

    "You're the one, Em. You're my once in a lifetime. Please let me be your once in a lifetime. Please let me be your best friend. Please let me protect you and your beautiful daughter, and please let me love you for the rest of your life. I love you, Emily. I am truly in love with you. Emily, please make me happier than I've ever been in my life and marry me."

Maynard replied with, "I would love to. You just made me the happiest girl in the world."
