Kelly Dodd Rick Leventhal First Date

As Rick Leventhal prepares to marry Kelly Dodd later this year, the Fox News correspondent is happily looking back on their early days. 

Rick shared a photo on Instagram on March 10 from his first romantic night out with The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member. "First date," he wrote alongside the photo of the pair sitting at a table taking a selfie. "First photo, sparks flying..."

Based on the location Rick tagged, it appears the couple's first date was at Chiltern Firehouse in London's Marylebone area. According to its website, the restaurant, located inside of a hotel of the same name, boasts "contemporary, ingredient-focused cooking, with an underlying American accent."

Kelly also has great memories of the night. "The best first date ever!!" she wrote in a comment on the post. "And I still get butterflies around you!"

The couple first met when Kelly accompanied Real Housewives of New York City cast member Ramona Singer to a summer barbecue hosted by Rick in New York's Hamptons area. They confirmed their relationship in August 2019 and got engaged on Rick's NYC rooftop two months later. Now, the duo has another exciting new chapter to look forward to as they settle into their new home together.

As they began to get settled in the home, Kelly showed off the stunning abode in a series of Instagram Story videos, which featured the all-white kitchen, eye-catching chandelier, sizable pool, and a sleek black and white pool table for Rick. "It's a family, fun house," she recently told "It’s got six bedrooms, five [bathrooms], two offices, a pool, and a spa. So, it’s a really nice family home."

Although he is currently still bi-coastal, Kelly shared her excitement over her fiancé working out of California. "I am beyond excited to have my @rickleventhal working in LA!!!"
