Danielle Staub has found love again. After posting a photo of herself kissing a mystery man while on vacation in St. Barth's earlier this week, Danielle has announced her engagement to Oliver Maier.
Given the whirlwind nature of this courtship and proposal, there hasn't been much time for us to get to know the lucky fella who's about to marry Danielle — although, the fact that he has stolen The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom's heart must mean that he's pretty special.
We can't wait to get to know (and surely love!) Danielle's new man in the future. But for now, here are just a few fabulous tidbits about her future husband.
1. He's Not from New Jersey
In fact, Oliver isn't even originally from the U.S.; he is French and German.
2. He's Royalty
Oliver is the Duke of Provence, which Danielle said she didn't know about until recently, according to PEOPLE. Oliver also told PEOPLE that his family owns 15 vineyards and two castles in the South of France. And yes, when Danielle and Oliver tie the knot on Monday, March 4, that means she will officially become a duchess.
3. This Isn't His First Marriage
Oliver has been married once before, and he shares a 12-year-old child with his ex-wife.
4. He's Super Successful
Oliver works as the managing director of Speyside Equity, a private equity firm based out of New York City. He also has a J.D. and Ph.D from Ludwig Maximilians Universität München in Germany, according to his LinkedIn profile.
5. He Worked Hard to Woo Danielle
Danielle and Oliver met in October through a mutual friend whom he was dating at the time, according to PEOPLE. However, Danielle told the publication that she "couldn't stand" Oliver at first, and she "wasn't open" to getting into another relationship after her breakup with Marty Caffrey in August. Oliver pursued Danielle for weeks, finally getting the chance to share a kiss at the Baccarat Hotel in New York City and then really having their romance blossom while on a trip to St. Barth's this week, where the couple got engaged.
We'll hear more from Danielle during Part 3 of the RHONJ Season 9 reunion on Wednesday at 9/8c. Catch a preview, below.
