The church bells are ringing for 90 Day Fiancé couple Nicola and Meisha.

Fans can expect to see Nicola propose to Meisha on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days in the episode airing this coming Sunday, as Entertainment Tonight previewed via an exclusive clip.

In the upcoming episode, Nicola shocks Meisha after getting down on one knee in the middle of a Jerusalem walkway. "I am asking you if you want to marry me," he says.

He prefaces his question with explaining how long he has waited to find a woman like Meisha. "I am going to tell you something very important. You know that I love you so much, Meisha. We have known each other for many years. I was waiting for a woman like you. And I want to tell you something very important," he shares in the clip.

As he gets down on one knee to ask her to marry him, Meisha appears to be in utter shock.

Meisha then quietly chuckles as Nicola concludes, “I don't have the ring but we will have to go now to buy one.”

Appearing in a state of disbelief, it takes a moment for Meisha to respond. As she remains silent, Nicola then starts asking, “Are you saying yes or no?”

Meisha then quickly replies, “Yes, I will.”

After the newly-engaged couple embrace and express their love for one another, Nicola says, "Let’s go to the jewelry store."

Meisha then replies, "I am in shock because you did it in public." Nicola then counters, "And you say I'm not romantic?"

Prior to their engagement, the couple had dated online for seven years, leading Meisha to travel to Israel to meet her long-distance partner. During that time, the two forged a connection after bonding over their Catholicism, which led Nicola to propose near the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

After proposing, Nicola eagerly shares the significance of their location in the ET exclusive video. "It's very, like sacred almost," he tells Meisha, referring to the holy site.

The clip also includes a confessional from Meisha, during which she explains to the cameras that while their relationship didn’t begin smoothly, she can’t wait to marry Nicola.

In the interview, Meisha says, "I have been praying to God about this, and I realized that as quirky and odd as he is, 'yes' was the right thing to say because Nicola's strength and his courage and how he has enlightened my life is something that I am sure I will never find again."

She continues by adding, "I don't have all the answers and I never will, but I'm going for it and I'm so excited to do so."

Prior to their engagement, the two weren’t entirely certain how their relationship would continue. After an uncomfortable meeting between Meisha and Nicola’s family, the TV personality explained in her confessional how she noticed her boyfriend waver on sharing their plans for a future together.

"I'm sitting here in this room and feeling so incredibly uncomfortable. We're supposed to be having this big reveal to his family about who I am and our plans for the future and all of a sudden Nicola is completely chickening out," Meisha said during the August episode.
