“Real Housewives of New York” star Tinsley Mortimer is off the market after becoming engaged to her boyfriend Scott Kluth.
According to Page Six, the “RHONY” star’s man popped the question while in his native city of Chicago.
The outlet reported the moment happened as Christmas carolers “sang by the steps of the Chicago Water Tower.”
A source told Page Six that, “Scott’s apartment is close to where the carollers were. They were walking to dinner to and they saw these carollers, and they broke into Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years,’ which is their song. It took Tinsley a few seconds to figure out what was going on, but then Scott got down on one knee. He’d organized the whole thing with the carollers in advance.”
“She was totally surprised. Her friends sort of knew something was coming, but it really did take her by surprise” added the source.
Scott allegedly asked Tinsley’s mother, Dale Mercer, for permission to marry the reality star. He reportedly bought the engagement ring on November 1.
Mortimer and Kluth have had an on-again off-again type relationship for over a year. Mortimer’s storyline on “RHONY” focused on her trying to get engaged and find a husband.
