Frank Catania Sr., who was previously married to The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Dolores Catania, is engaged to his girlfriend, Brittany Mattessich — and we have all the incredible details! 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

The romantic proposal, which Brittany documented in an October 29 Instagram post, definitely left us — as well as Frank's castmates and other Bravolebrities — stunned. 

Scroll down to get the details, including photos of Brittany's gorgeous ring and the beautifully decorated space where Frank proposed. 

Frank Catania and Brittany Mattessich's engagement details 

In her Instagram post, which included two photos, Brittany posed with her soon-to-be-hubby in a room amid a wall of red roses which featured a sign displaying the message "Will you marry me?" 

"We’re Engaged!!!!" Brittany gushed in the caption of her post, where we also saw candles and red rose petals placed on both sides of the flower wall, courtesy of Pretty Planners & Events. The pair also rocked coordinated looks for the occasion, with Frank in blue jeans, a black shirt and black jacket while Brittany wore a black top and blue jeans tucked into knee-high black heeled boots. 

"I'm so excited to start this next chapter with you along with all [of] the other good things we have going on," Brittany added in her caption.

In the second slide of the post, the couple shared a sweet kiss and Brittany flashed her engagement ring to the camera. While we didn't get a close-up shot just yet of the accessory, we were still in awe of what appeared to be an enormous princess-cut diamond sparkler situated atop a pavé band. 

Brittany concluded in her caption, "Thank you for being you [and] making me the happiest girl in the world. I wouldn’t want to do this life with anyone else other [than] [Frank Catania.] love you so much[,] my fiancé."

Following her post, a slew of Bravolebs flocked to the comments section to share their excitement, including RHONJ's Melissa Gorga, who wrote, "Omg omg!!!!" along with three heart eyes emojis. Margaret Josephs beamed, "Congratulations on the Happily ever after !! So thrilled for you both !!"

The Real Housewives of Orange County's Tamra Judge also showed some love with three heart eyes emojis while Dolores' beau, Paul "Paulie" Connell wrote, "Congratulations you [two] love birds."

In addition to their engagement, Frank revealed during the RHONJ Season 13 reunion that he and Brittany "closed" on a house together

As RHONJ fans know, Frank was living with Dolores' ex-boyfriend David Principe for some time. During Part 3 of the RHONJ reunion, however, he shared his new home plans. 

When Frank took his seat for Part 3, which aired on June 13, host Andy Cohen had questions about his current living arrangement. “You remaining in David’s house is a head-scratcher to me,” Andy said. “Are you paying him rent?”

While Frank noted he took care "of many things in the house,” he then shared he would be soon moving out. 

“I’m glad to say that Brittany and I have closed on our own house,” Frank revealed. “I’m gonna have to break it to David before this reunion airs, because I haven’t told him yet.”
