The 42-year-old, of the high-profile Kardashian clan, posted two photos of the pair capturing the romantic setting for an apparent beach proposal.

The intimate shots featured the couple embracing in the middle of a huge ring of red roses encircled by candles.

Barker responded to her post with the words "forever" and shared Instagram stories of the pair celebrating with friends and families at a rose-covered dinner table.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian reacted to their sister's Instagram announcement with a series of heart and ring emojis.

Kim shared a video of the newly engaged pair kissing, set to the Bruno Mars tune "Marry You."

In the clip and pictures shared by half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, beaming Kourtney can be seen sporting what appears to be a large diamond engagement ring.

A representative for the star confirmed the engagement news to Associated Press, but no other details have yet been revealed.

People magazine and celebrity website TMZ reported Barker arranged the proposal at a beach in Montecito, California, which is near Santa Barbara.
