Bethenny Frankel: Engaged to Jason Hoppy!

at .

We'd have expected more of an attention-grabbing announcement from Bethenny Frankel herself. But perhaps The Real Housewives of New York City is actually taking her engagement seriously and personally this time.

A few days after she was spotted in Miami with a diamond ring on her finger, Frankel's rep has confirmed that his client is engaged to boyfriend Jason Hoppy.

"I can confirm Bethenny and Jason are in love and plan on getting married," her rep said to Us Weekly. "So I guess this is the starter ring."

It's safe to assume the actual ring will be quite a bit larger.

Earlier this year, Frankel couldn't help but gush about her new man.

"I'm in love," she said at an event in the Hamptons. "I'm pretty much certain I'm going to spend the rest of my life with him... I'm really happy."

We'd like to wish this couple the very best of luck! We'd also like to hope the engagement now means Frankel will start wearing a bra.
