Darren Criss announced that he was engaged to longtime girlfriend Mia Swier (opens in new tab) in January, and the couple looked freaking adorable tonight at the 2018 Emmy's.

Tonight, Darren won the award for lead actor in a limited series or movie for his role in The Assasination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and called it (opens in new tab) "the most extraordinary moment of my life." Of course, he made a perfect speech and thanked his fiancé at the end with the most beautiful line.

Wait for it. Are you ready? I don't think you're ready.

"You roll the windows down and pump the music up in my life.”

That's it. I am deceased.

Now, please just take a moment for their red carpet PDA:
