22-year old Marlow tells PEOPLE that she had an eerie premonition that her guy was about to propose.

“We booked a vacation to Cabo San Lucas to celebrate seven years together. Well, three days before our trip, I had a dream that he proposed on the beach but he lost the ring,” she recalls.

“When I told Jonah about the dream, he was super freaked out. I had no idea at the time that he was actually planning on doing it in Cabo, so I felt awful after the fact!” the singer shared before adding that Jonah sped up his proposal plan because of her dream and opted to propose to her the morning before they left on their anniversary vacation.

“He said, ‘I’ve been wanting to ask you something for a really long time.’ He got out of bed, down on one knee and popped the question! Then he told me he wanted to do it in Cabo but after my dream he thought it would be safer to do it before we left!” she says. “I always told him I wanted a really intimate proposal, nothing over the top, so it was perfect!”

To make the moment even more special, Font proposed with a diamond engagement ring that held a treasured family heirloom.

“The center stone on my ring is the diamond from my mom’s original engagement ring. My parents have been married 25 years!” explained Marlow. “My dad bought her a new ring a while back, so she kept her original diamond to pass down to me or my sister someday. It is so special having an heirloom ring because I will get to pass it down one day too.”
