Ludacris is now officially a member of the mile high – proposal – club.

The rapper took popping the question to new heights when he proposed to girlfriend Eudoxie Mbouguiengue on Friday.

But his longtime love’s response wasn’t the one-word answer he was waiting for.

“She didn’t say yes,” Ludacris, 37, teased on Instagram. “She said HELL YES!”

Sharing a collage of the couple’s big moment, Ludacris included snapshots of his fianceé showing off her shock and excitement, along with a picture of the words “Eudoxie will you marry me,” written on a marbled backdrop.

Before announcing their engagement, Ludacris shared photos of family and friends getting ready to board a private plane. “Let the festivities begin … #vacation,” he wrote.

But, despite the pending proposal, the future groom played it cool.

“This that ‘I’m bout to sleep this whole ride face’ ” he added alongside a photo with Mbouguiengue on the tarmac.
