Earlier this week, the news broke that Mortimer was officially off the market after her on-again-off-again boyfriend had proposed to her in Chicago.
Mortimer posted a photo of her looking shocked as Kluth is holding the massive ring while on one knee. She wrote, “I always knew it was you!!! ❤️”
“RHOC” star Tamra Judge commented “Congratulations I’m so happy for you guys 👰🏼 🤵” and Vicki Gunvalson said, “Congratulations! Wishing you both a lifetime if happiness.”
Her former “RHONY” costar Bethenny Frankel said her words in only emojis, “😘💋❌⭕️.”
According to Page Six, the “RHONY” star’s man popped the question as Christmas carolers “sang by the steps of the Chicago Water Tower.”
The source told Page Six, “Scott’s apartment is close to where the carollers were. They were walking to dinner to and they saw these carollers, and they broke into Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years,’ which is their song. It took Tinsley a few seconds to figure out what was going on, but then Scott got down on one knee. He’d organized the whole thing with the carollers in advance.”
“She was totally surprised. Her friends sort of knew something was coming, but it really did take her by surprise” added the source.
Scott even asked Tinsley’s mother, Dale Mercer, for permission before popping the question. He was planning out the moment after reportedly buying the ring on November 1. Mortimer’s storyline on “RHONY” focused on her trying to get engaged and find a husband, specifically trying to get Kluth to lock her down.
Mortimer has been having a whirlwind couple weeks. Earlier this month, she sparked rumors she quit “RHONY” after she skipped out on filming.
