Olivier Sarkozy and Mary-Kate Olsen are engaged! The former Full House child star is engaged to marry her boyfriend of nearly two years, reports confirm.

Olivier Sarkozy and Mary-Kate Olsen

Sarkozy, 44, is the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy. A banker, he first stepped out with the fashionista, 27, back in early 2012.

Since then, they’ve been a frequent presence at basketball games and elsewhere in New York City, where they live together in a $6.25 million townhouse.

This will be Mary-Kate Olsen’s first marriage and Sarkozy’s second. He and his first wife Charlotte Bernard had two kids, Julien, 12, and Margo, 10.

That’s not an issue for her, though. On the contrary, in fact.

“Mary-Kate has made him a better father. She remembers all the kids’ special events,” a source said of Olivier’s wife-to-be. “She thinks he’s a great dad.”


Her loved ones have a pretty high opinion of him, too.

“Mary-Kate’s family thinks Olivier is the best thing to happen to her,” an insider says of sisters Ashley and Elizabeth, plus their parents. “They love him.”

Her twin sister, Ashley, is also dating an older man.

Following her split from David Schulte, the other Olsen twin has been spending time with Moneyball film director Bennett Miller, who is 20 years her senior.

Congratulations to the soon-to-be newlyweds!
