‘Below Deck’: Josiah Carter and Michael Groves Are Engaged – ‘He Asked, I Said Yes’
At a luxurious ski resort in the French Alps, Groves got down on one knee and proposed to Carter – presenting him with a beautiful timepiece in lieu of a ring. They then went on to toast with a champagne lunch.
The couple has been together for years and even made it through the horrors of home renovation and raising a puppy. Groves and Carter also celebrated their four-year anniversary in October.
‘He asked, I said yes’
Carter wrote on his Instagram story, “He asked, I said yes.” Carter and Groves started dating before Carter became a second stew on Below Deck Season 6. The couple has been steadily together ever since and traveled the world.
A slew of Below Deck crew members wished the couple well, including Julia d’Albert, who is Carter’s Below Deck Galley Talk partner. “HUGE congratulations,” she wrote. “I can’t wait for the ‘engagement party.’ Both beautiful.” Brooke Laughton, who also recently got engaged added, “Awwww this is so perfect!! Congratulations Josiah and Mike.. let’s have champersss in Mallorca sooooon.” Ross Inia, who was a cast member on Below Deck Season 6 shared, “This is amazing @josiahcarter_ and @mikestg365 so happy for you both!!! Congratulations.”
Carter and Groves ended the day with a spectacular fireworks display, which Groves shared on his Instagram. The couple also recently celebrated Carter’s birthday only a few days before the big proposal.
