'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Kelly Dodd is officially engaged to Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal, capping off what has been a whirlwind romance.

The reality star, 44, made the announcement on her Instagram page this past Wednesday, November 13, alongside a romantic selfie where she showed off her new diamond engagement ring as she snuggled with Leventhal at his New York City apartment.

"I can’t believe I just got engaged!!" she wrote. "@rickleventhal you are my Prince and my dream come true!!!"

Leventhal also reciprocated those feelings in an Instagram post of his own where he uploaded the same picture and simply wrote, "Dreams do come true."

Dodd also shared details of their intimate and romantic evening in a series of snaps on Instagram stories. "I got engaged," she gushes in one. "Look at that, it's a little big. Engaged! Oh my God, look at that, right there. Look at how he did it! Look how b***** that ring is - bam!"

Leventhal responds to her quip and says, "You deserve a big ring."

The couple had met just this past Summer through 'Real Housewives of New York City' star Ramona Singer at a party in the Hampton's, and have already vacationed together in Europe.

Dodd and Leventhal also spoke to PEOPLE about their engagement, with the former, who divorced her ex-husband Michael Dodd last year, saying, "I’m beyond excited for our future together. Rick is my best friend. My partner in crime. I’m so in love. I can’t believe this happened to me. I feel like I just won the lottery."

She also described how Leventhal popped the question. "He said this amazing speech about our love and then got down on one knee and pulled out this giant ring," she revealed. "I couldn’t believe it!"

Leventhal similarly said he "feels like the luckiest guy on Earth" and said they were considering tying the knot on October 10, 2020.
