The 57-year-old has been a main cast member on the Real Housewives of Orange County since season one in 2006. She has been married twice before, and has two children, Briana and Michael, from her first marriage.

Third time’s the charm!!

Her fiancé, a retired homicide detective and US Army veteran, shared the same smiling photo on his IG feed, captioned:

“She said yes ? #blessedday #engaged #happywifehappylife”

No word yet on how he popped the question, but we’re hoping she shares more details soon!! A source shared with ET that he popped the question privately at their home inside Coto de Caza, and had their combined six kids’ blessing before getting down on one knee with the 5.5 carat rock.
The insider commented:

“Needless to say, she is over the moon.”

Vicki has been eagerly awaiting the proposal for quite some time, sharing with ET in July 2018:

“I don’t want to be 60 and 70 years old and dating a boyfriend. I’m 56 now, he’ll be 60. I want to show our children — we’ve got six kids between the two of us, and six grandchildren — that marriage is important.”

The More Than A Housewife author explained:

“I’m a marriage girl, I’ve been married my whole life. So, to be at this awkward stage, at 56 years old, and not being married, it’s not comfortable for me. But it’s something we don’t want to rush and, you know, we just want to take it at our time, so — it’s nice, ’cause we talk about it. It’s not me pressuring him or him pressuring me. It’s going to be a joint decision and stay tuned. It’s gonna be one hell of a fun ride.”

A big congrats to the happy couple!!
