"Can't wait to get to know you stranger & thank you to my grandparents @lorienstern & @davesclubhouse for not suggesting I take a shower yesterday morning," she continued.

In the clip, fans can see a stunned Katie reacting to Will's proposal.

"You're kidding?" Katie says. "This is a joke."

"This is not a joke," Will replies.

She then observes that her diamond ring is too big for her finger, but Will promises to get it resized.

Despite her funny "whirlwind romance" remark, Katie and Will have actually been dating for over six years. The two met while she was completing her BFA degree at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

As Radar readers know, Katie is the late-night host's eldest daughter, from his first marriage to Gina Kimmel.
