Ryan Serhant is never shy to gush about his puffer munkin Emilia Bechrakis. And with their wedding quickly approaching, The Daily Dish just had to know how the Million Dollar Listing New York agent knew she was the one.

"I think that she really was the only person I ever met where the minute that I would go away from her, I would think about her every single second and everything became second place towards waiting for the next time I got to see her again," he said. "Which was a crazy thing for me cause I never felt that before, ever. And then I'm always somebody who thinks five steps ahead, which gets me in trouble a lot because it's hard for me to be in the now 'cause I'm always thinking about my life five, 10, 15 years from now and making sure the future Ryan is happy — which in business works really well. But in personal life, it's important to be present and I just knew from the moment that I saw her that she would be able to make me laugh when I was 90 years old and in a wheelchair and I think that that's the most important [thing]."

Ryan and Emilia will say "I do" in front of family and friends in Greece later this summer. But Ryan isn't so sure when the twosome plan on starting a family. "I don't know, we'll see kind of what happens," he said. "We're both very busy, so we both definitely want to start a family but we'll see how life takes us. We got to live through this wedding first — oh my gosh! It's not a little one, that's for sure."

And in case you needed a reminder of just how big of a fan Ryan is of grand gestures, relive his over-the-top proposal to Emilia, below.
