Talking to People Magazine on Saturday night at Comedy Central's "Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert For Autism Education," Oliver says he popped the question while the couple was vacationing in the Caribbean.

The newly-engaged couple first met at the Republican Convention in 2008, where Oliver was reporting for Jon Stewart's The Daily Show.

Norley served as a medic in the Army, but now she's just looking forward to being with her hubby-to-be.

"It was difficult," she says of her time in the service, "but right now it's nice that I get to spend time with the love of my life."

Of course, now Oliver has to really step up his game.

"It's the most emasculating thing I could possibly do to go out with someone who has actually done something valuable with their life," he joked.

As for the wedding, the couple reports no exact date has been set but that it will be sometime next year.
