Tayla announced her engagement to Richmond player Nathan Broad in June.
The Love Island star posted a video of her fiance asking the question on their porch, which was recorded on their home CCTV system.
She recently said that she was happy to be called WAG after her engagement to Nathan.
“I don’t mind, to be honest. I know who I am – and apparently I’m a WAG now. You just have to laugh about it, really, ”she told Stellar magazine.
Tayla also said the couple are in no rush to get married.
“We will discuss an engagement party at a later date, when the world has returned to some normalcy. [And] we hope to do [the wedding] later next year after the football season is over, ”she said.

They shared a number of images on social media as they enjoyed a wine tasting in the famous wine region.

Gary Rohan went “Instagram official” with his girlfriend Madi in April, but deleted the post a month later after receiving a backlash from the public.
He and his ex-wife Amie Rohan split last year when he traveled with his teammates from Geelong to Queensland to join the AFL Covid hub, while Amie remained in Victoria with their children, Bella, three, and Sadie, one.
The Rohans had suffered unimaginable grief in 2018 when Willow, Bella’s twin, died five hours after birth due to a defect causing babies to be born without parts of the brain.
The couple had been married for four years before their split, with Amie revealing in April this year that the separation was more difficult than losing their daughter.
While Gary was in the AFL hub, he met Madi after his marriage broke up, months after Sadie was born.
Madi had flown across the country to use her physiotherapy skills to help Geelong Cats legend Gary Ablett Jr see his final season.

Liv married Jamie Cripps in a luxurious ceremony in Western Australia in October.
The couple were surrounded by family and friends as they celebrated their nuptials at Black Brewing Co, a craft brewery in Margaret River.
The AFL star knelt down and asked the question in Queenstown, New Zealand two years ago.
Just a week after marrying her soul mate, Liv, 26, revealed she was in hospital battling thyroid cancer.
She broke the devastating news with a photo of herself lying in a hospital bed, thumbing up at the camera, with countless tubes and wires circling her body.
The wife of West Coast Eagles player Jamie Cripps remarked that “cancer” was not a word she expected to hear in her mid-twenties, but she felt it was important to share so that everyone can check their own irregular “chunks”.

Monique Fontana is in a relationship with AFL star Patrick Cripps.
She recently opened up about her struggle with mental illness after revealing last year that she has obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The vet tech student spoke about her battle and how her star partner at AFL has helped her through her recovery as she goes into regular therapy.
“I’m happy to be open about this, I think there are a lot of people who suffer from OCD, but you’re too embarrassed and not getting diagnosed,” Fontana told the Daily Telegraph.
“It’s good to have a diagnosis. It can be really debilitating and exhausting. It is good to manage and control it. I do dialectical behavior therapy and it kind of saved my life, ”she continued.
