Legendary lothario Gene Simmons finally popped the question to longtime partner Shannon Tweed on the season finale of Gene Simmons: Family Jewels last night. “I come with so much baggage, but you’re the only friend I’ve got, ” Simmons told Tweed on a bayside dock in Belize. “You’re the only one I’ve ever loved … I used to watch movies where they say, ‘I can’t live without you,’ but for me it’s true.” Watch below.

Of course, the actual proposal reportedly took place months ago, and the couple, who have two children from a relationship that has lasted 28 years, have since looked less than loving in several interviews to promote the show. So don’t order off their wedding registry just yet.

Simmons tweeted this morning, “Shannon and I work on our relationship every day. One day at a time. Thanks for watching. When we figure out our lives, you will know.” Tweed tweeted, “We are taking it day by day. Stay tuned.”

And that’s how you generate interest for next season!
