That's because LuAnn de Lesseps, Singer's co-star on The Real Housewives of New York City, has confirmed that she's engaged to Tom D'Agostino Jr., who happens to be Singer's ex-boyfriend.

The couple has been teasing this romantic news for weeks now, ever since we reported last month that they were dating.

Insiders told People Magazine at the time that de Lesseps is "completely over the moon" for the real estate investor and and that a "big announcement is imminent."

So here it is:

"Thomas was planning on a Valentine's Day proposal during their upcoming vacation in Vail, but couldn't wait and presented an eight-carat canary yellow diamond ring before they got there," a source close to Lesseps tells People.

Yes, you read that correctly: EIGHT carats!

The anonymous insider goes on to say that LuAnn considers Tom to be "her soulmate and is so happy and grateful to have found love a second time."

Lesseps was married to Count Alexandre De Lesseps from 1993 to 2009 and the exes share two children, son Noel and daughter Victoria.

Tragically, once her impending marriage is made official, the reality star will lose her courtesy title of Countess.

However, have no fear: her businesses, The Countess Collection: Styled for Living (which features her apparel and jewelry collections on will stick around.


Lesseps was introduced to D'Agostino about nine months ago.

They haven't been dating long, but when the heart wants what the heart wants, one cannot argue with said heart.

No word yet on when this wedding will take place, but we're guessing LuAnn de Lesseps won't be shy is passing along every last detail.

We send our very best wishes to the happy couple and we can't wait to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online to see how their relationship evolves.
