Patti Stanger: Engaged to Andy Friedman

by at . Comments

The annoying host of that Millionaire Matchmaker show on Bravo has apparently found one of her own. We're guessing the guy isn't poor, either.

Patti Stanger is engaged to Andy Friedman, she says. The star's reaction:

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

"I feel like it should have happened years ago, so I'm kind of shocked."

Andy Friedman, a 51-year-old real estate executive that Patti Stanger, 48, met through her own matchmaker five and a half years ago - popped the question in Maui on her May 31 birthday. A black swan named Raymond delivered the ring.

Of the ring, Patti says, "I have a rule, if you go out a year and he doesn't propose, it goes up a carat a year." Because that makes a lot of sense.

The L.A.-based duo is planning 2010 nuptials, even if "I want to elope, and he wants a big wedding," she says. "I'm like, 'Let's go to Vegas!'"
