Late last week following his Dancing with the Stars elimination, Bonner indirectly asked Normani out on a date by looking into cameras during an interview with Entertainment Tonight and saying, "Normani, will you go out on a date with me?... It would be an honor to go on a date with you, ma'am."
Bonner, 29, had a big smile on his face and suggested he'd patiently wait for her reply.
Well, on Monday, May 15, Normani responded to the model and former professional bull rider's invitation.
"Yes! I will go out with you!" Normani, 20, exclaimed during her own on-camera interview with ET. "I'll definitely go out with you."
Bonner previously admitted he has a little crush on the Fifth Harmony singer shortly after footage aired on Dancing with the Stars of Normani telling her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy that the cowboy is "hot" before the pair danced a country-themed trio routine. (Bonner even made a cameo during Normani's performance).
"I love that girl. She is just so beautiful inside and out," Bonner had said. "When she walks in the room, the whole room lights up. She is such a sweetheart and [was] an encouragement to me the whole time I was [on Dancing with the Stars]."
Val, however, may have some reservations about his celebrity partner pursuing a romantic relationship right now with Bonner. Val, 31, has seemingly taken on an over-protective, big-brother role in Normani's life.
"Wait, wait, wait! Not this week because we got things to do this week, but maybe a week after that," Val joked of the upcoming Dancing with the Stars finale. "I need an address, where you're going on a date, what kind of menu there's going to be. There's no drinking involved because she's not even 21 yet."
The "Work From Home" singer brushed off Val's concerns by chiming in, "I turn 21 at the end of the month!"
Normani had been waiting for the perfect time to accept Bonner's date proposal, according to Us Weekly, as she wanted to "look super cute" in the video message back to him. She also said "he better" come support her at next week's Dancing with the Stars finale.

"There's only one winner at the end of the day," Normani told ET, revealing that the whole cast has become a family. "But I think that all of us can take something away from this show besides just the mirrorball trophy."
