Below Deck Alum Congratulate Aesha Getting Engaged To Scott Dobson

Below Deck star Aesha Scott’s engagement to her long-time boyfriend Scott Dobson brought a lot of celebration from current and former cast members wishing the young couple well. The couple recently bought a house back home in New Zealand, where they first met before reconnecting nearly a decade later in America. US Weekly first broke the news exclusively on Wednesday, revealing Scott popped the big question at Homunga Bay, near their hometown of Tauranga, where they now live. Now Below Deck alum are congratulating Aesha getting engaged to Scott.

“Writing that makes tears come to my eyes. During my 20s I thought meeting my one might not happen for me, I was too busy flitting around the world doing my own thing. But I did find him, and in all the dreams of a happy ending I never thought I’d get someone quite as good as Scott,” Aesha wrote on an Instagram post including lots of pictures of Scott proposing.

“He is a good, decent, honest person to the core and he loves me so much. He treats me well and respects me and my dreams and makes me laugh. I had never had a healthy relationship so I didn’t know what such a good one even looked like. I am the luckiest woman in the world that I get to have his love.”

Good news keeps rolling in for 31-year-old Chief Stewardess Aesha Scott. Two weeks ago, Bravo announced Aesha will be starring in Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 alongside Captain Sandy Yawn, returning to the franchise she already starred in on seasons 4 and 5. However, this time around, she’ll be head of the interior department like she was on Below Deck Down Under seasons 1 and 2.

Upon the latest news of Aesha’s engagement, her former costars and other cast from the Below Deck alumni are giving their best wishes to Aesha and her fiancé.

“SCREAMING !!!!! so so sooo happy for you my love. Congratulations to you both!!! I knew this day would be coming soon,” wrote BDDU season 2 costar Jamie Neale.

“Congratulations! Such a lovely couple,” wrote Below Deck Med star Natalya Scudder.

“Congratulations,” wrote Captain Sandy, which seemed half-hearted. Perhaps the two didn’t get along on season 9.

“Congratulations my love!! As lucky as you are – he’s 10 times luckier!!! You are truly one of a kind – and I am so so so incredibly happy you got your happily ever after!!! Welcome to the old wives club bitch,” wrote a much more enthusiastic Below Deck Med alumna and Aesha’s former boss Hannah Ferrier.

“I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU BOTH! You both deserve so much! Congratulations baby girl,” said Katie Flood.

“My baby girl is engaged!!!!” wrote former costar and good friend Anastasia Surmava in an Instagram story.

“I can’t be happier for my girl [Aesha] and her wonderful man [Scotty]. You two are an inspiration! Can you please make me some god children now!!!!” BDDU season 2 costar Chef Tzarina Mace-Ralph wrote in an Instagram story.

“This is so amazing so happy for you both,” wrote Below Deck Sailing Yacht Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher.

Aesha Reveals How Scott Proposed To Her

Aesha thanked everyone sending them love and support in their engagement.

“I can’t believe how lucky we are to have so many genuinely lovely humans cheering us on. This is the dream cheer squad!!!”

Apparently Scott, age 33, completely surprised Aesha with his proposal.

The proposal happened down at Homunga Bay, one of my favorite spots near Tauranga that you can only get to by walking through a farm or along the coast. My one guideline to Scott was that I wanted it to be a total surprise, and he knows me well enough to know I would want sentimental over flashy any day,” Aesha explained in the comments about how the proposal went down.

“We got up at 4 a.m. and I thought we were meeting my bestie and her husband to have a sunrise hike and then get some cute photos. I genuinely had NO CLUE and was just so wrapped up in making the day perfect for my friend who ‘wanted the photos’ (I thought). I rushed to get changed and get the bubbles poured for a sunrise cheers and stood next to my friend admiring the view.”

But to Aesha’s complete surprise, things took a romantic turn.

“She suddenly started running away from me and I turned to see why and I see Scott, teary eyed, walking toward me with a nice shirt on and that’s when I knew the real reason they got me down there!!!! Then it was a whirlwind of love and excitement and I actually barely remember it because I was so shocked hahaha.”

Aesha has now been posting Instagram stories after traveling back to America with her fiancé. Scott is a professional speed-flier, a highly dangerous sport that’s a hybrid of paragliding and parachuting. The two like to spend some time living in Colorado when not in their home country of New Zealand. Dobson made a brief appearance on BDDU season 2 on the crew day off, where he visited Aesha to spend some time together.
