Nate Berkus is engaged to Jeremiah Brent, his boyfriend of nearly nine months.

The 41-year-old interior designer, TV personality and Oprah protege popped the question Monday at Machu Picchu in Peru, completely surprising Brent because the two were actually on a business trip, his rep confirmed to Us Weekly.

"Machu Picchu @nate_berkus @susankfeldman @allmoxie #lifechanging #specialday," Brent tweeted on Monday with an Instagram picture of the group at the ruins. He's a former assistant to Rachel Zoe.

The couple split their time between New York, Berkus' home base, and Los Angeles, where Brent operates out of, according to the mag.

Berkus is a survivor of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which claimed the life of his longtime partner Fernando Bengoechea in Sri Lanka.
