Huge congratulations are in order for former Real Housewives of New Jersey darling Lauren Manzo, who just got engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Vito Scalia!

Lauren’s mom, Caroline Manzo, left RHoNJ at the end of this season to focus full-time on her new Bravo pilot, Manzo'd With Children. Now, one of those children is ready to get hitched! Vito popped the question on November 12. Lauren said yes, and her brothers, Albie and Chris Manzo, were quick to announce the happy news on Twitter.

Albie got to it first, posting a photo of Chris, Vito, Lauren, and himself celebrating together. A stunning diamond engagement ring is clearly visible on Lauren’s finger. It’s beautiful. It’s huge. Clearly, Vito picked an excellent rock for his lucky bride.


“Any guess on what the big news is???” Albie wrote. “Congratulations to @laurenmanzo and @vitoscalia3 Absolutely couldn't be happier, love you both!!!!”

Chris quickly followed up with his own post, writing, “Not a joke this time! Congrats Lauren and Vito, I love you both.” As Chris references, rumors that Vito and Lauren were engaged, or about to be engaged, have been floating around for quite a while. Now, it’s finally happening for real.

Caroline, too, has taken to Twitter to wish her daughter all the best. She tweeted out a link to her website, which included a gorgeous photo of the happy couple. We get an even closer look at Lauren’s ring, and the 25-year-old is grinning ear to ear.

“My baby is engaged!!!” her happy mama wrote.

Congrats to Lauren and Vito. Now, we just have to hope Season 1 of Manzo'd With Children does well. If so, we might just get a wedding over the course of Season 2!
