The Real Housewives of Orange County alum has confirmed her engagement once again to Jennifer Spinner, a digital marketing and SEO expert she met through mutual acquaintances in 2022. Braunwyn announced the exciting news for a second time in an October 29 Instagram post, that showed her and Jennifer celebrating the special occasion at their Tennessee home along with Braunwyn’s kids: Hazel, Koa, Caden, and Curren.

Jennifer Spinner's proposal to Braunwyn Windham-Burke

Just three months after Braunwyn proposed to her girlfriend of one year, Jennifer followed up the romantic gesture over the weekend by giving Bruanwyn her own engagement ring.

Awwwww!!! I said yes ! Thank you [Jennifer Spinner],” the RHOC alum captioned her post. “ I Love you , I love that the kids love you, I love how much you love them!!! Can't wait to be your wife!!”

Judging from the photo, it seems that Jennifer enlisted the assistance of Braunwyn's children for the proposal. The kids were dressed in cozy pajamas and appeared to be genuinely thrilled for their mother. One of the children was even holding a sign with the message "Will you marry me?" written on it.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s proposal to Jennifer Spinner coincided with another milestone

During the summer, Braunwyn announced her and Jennifer’s initial proposal. Taking to Instagram Story on July 15, Braunyn shared a few photos of her and her partner having a romantic picnic on Little Island, the popular New York City park where they had their first kiss.

“She said ‘YES!’” Braunwyn captioned the carousel. “I couldn’t imagine a more perfect place then [sic] where we first met to ask you to be my wife and spend your life with me! You truly are my person, I love you in all the ways, big and small, and I can’t wait to marry you (yes we have a date!!) xoxo I HAVE A FIANCÉ!!!”

Braunwyn’s proposal coincided with the couple’s first anniversary and took place just several months after they unofficially tied the knot in Las Vegas. The wedding served as a commitment ceremony that was not legally binding, as Braunwyn was still in divorce proceedings with her estranged husband, Sean Burke.

“Part of the reason I proposed now was because I now have an end date in my divorce; we’re about 80 days from it wrapping,” Braunwyn exclusively told People magazine. “Before, the divorce seemed endless, like it would never happen, so we did things like exchange promise rings or have that Vegas wedding with Elvis in efforts to set intentions in our relationship. ‘This is what we are promising to each other. This is our commitment to start a life together.’ Now, it’s different. I proposed today knowing we can actually start planning a wedding. So it feels incredible.”

Braunwyn filed for divorce in the fall of 2022, after more than two decades of marriage. She and Sean share seven children, ranging from age 4 to 22.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke's Life Changes

The former OC ’Wife came out as a lesbian in 2021, nearly a year after she went sober.

“Through all those changes in my life, I wasn’t at peace,” she told the outlet. “I was working on myself, trying to stay sober, trying to make things work with Sean — all while coming to terms with my sexuality and jumping from relationship to relationship. I was struggling! I was struggling to be a mom, to be a present partner and to really sit with myself. And after meeting Jen, all that changed.”

The couple has not revealed an exact wedding date but said the ceremony may take place next October in Nashville.

“It’ll be something intimate and very country,” Braunwyn revealed. “Think cowboy boots.”
