Kelly Dodd Is Engaged to Boyfriend Rick Leventhal
“I’m beyond excited for our future together," The Real Housewives of Orange County mom gushed.
Kelly Dodd has found her Prince Charming.
The Real Housewives of Orange County mom got engaged to her boyfriend, Rick Leventhal, on Wednesday, November 13, she confirmed to PEOPLE.
Kelly first announced the happy news in a video in her Instagram Story where she showed off her ginormous diamond ring. "I got engaged!" Kelly gushed in the clip. "Look at that. It's a little big."
"You deserve a big ring," Rick, who is a senior correspondent for Fox News, said in response in the video.
Kelly also said that the rooftop of Rick's New York City apartment where he popped the question was "so romantic." "I love you," she said before kissing Rick. "Look how badass that ring is. Bam!"
Kelly also couldn't help but quote Beyoncé's iconic "Single Ladies" song in another video celebrating her engagement out to dinner with Rick and friends in her Instagram Story. "You liked it so much, you put a ring on it," she said while flashing her engagement ring in the clip. "Bam! Look at that bad boy. Bling bling with the pinky ring."
The RHOC mom also confirmed her engagement in a post featuring a photo of herself and Rick just moments after the proposal. "I can’t believe I just got engaged !!" she said. "@rickleventhal you are my Prince and my dream come true!!!"
Rick posted the same photo on his Instagram, along with the caption, "Dreams do come true."
Kelly opened up more about her engagement during an interview with PEOPLE shortly after Rick popped the question. “I’m beyond excited for our future together. Rick is my best friend. My partner in crime. I’m so in love. I can’t believe this happened to me. I feel like I just won the lottery,” Kelly said. “He said this amazing speech about our love and then got down on one knee and pulled out this giant ring. I couldn’t believe it!”
Rick also told PEOPLE, “And I feel like the luckiest guy on earth.”
Kelly went public with her relationship with Rick in August after announcing her breakup with Dr. Brian Reagan, who fans see her dating this season of RHOC. Kelly met Rick with The Real Housewives of New York City's Ramona Singer by her side at a barbecue in the Hamptons over the summer.
Kelly was previously married to Michael Dodd with whom she shares one child, 13-year-old daughter Jolie. Kelly and Michael finalized their divorce in February 2018.
