ICYMI (and, really, we're not sure how that could be the case): Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are officially engaged. And the news has definitely made its way around the Bravo grapevine — all the way to Andy Cohen, who revealed his take on their engagement in an interview with ABC News. "I was both surprised and not at all [surprised]," the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host said. "I hope Jax doesn't blow it."
The Vanderpump Rules bartender asked his longtime girlfriend to marry him in Malibu on June 8 with a lovely ring designed by Kyle Chan (more from the couple on the engagement above). They confirmed the news on Instagram, with Jax writing, "She said yes!!! I can’t wait for y’all to see how this happened next season!!! I am marrying the woman of my dreams and I could not be happier!! Make sure y’all tune in season 7 to see how this unfolded," Jax wrote on Instagram. Brittany added, "Omg omg!!!!!!!! We are ENGAGED! What a way to start our summer and season 7!! I am so happy, so in love, and so beyond excited for this next chapter of our lives! I can’t wait for all of you to see how he proposed!"
Jax has since called the proposal "absolutely the best moment in my life."
Jax and Brittany met three years ago in Las Vegas (more on that fateful encounter in the video above) and shortly after meeting, Brittany left her native Kentucky behind and moved to Los Angeles to be closer to Jax. In the years since, they have certainly weathered several storms, including Jax getting arrested in Hawaii, a cheating scandal involving former SURver Faith, which played out during Season 6 of Vanderpump Rules, and the recent passing of his father, Ron Cauchi.
It was after his dad passed away in December and seeiing the way that Brittany supported him through the tragedy that, as Jax explained in the video below, brought them closer than ever.
