Angelina Pivarnick could finally be getting her happily ever after!
The Jersey Shore alum -- who was notorious for ditching her GTL-lovin’ roommates in both seasons 1 and 2 of the hit MTV series -- is engaged to her boyfriend, Chris Larangeira, ET confirms.
“I am sooooo excited about becoming a wife and having kids,” Pivarnick tells ET. “We are going to work on [the kids] rather quick.”
An excited Pivarnick also confirmed the news in an Instagram collage, which featured several photos of the sweet proposal, including a close-up shot of her new bling.
“Marrying my best friend. Sooo happy,” she captioned the series of snaps. “The way he proposed was soo intimate and beautiful. I am excited for this year even more now!! Let the wedding planning begin."
The 31-year-old reality star dished details of their romantic evening, which included “a beautiful Italian dinner,” before Larangeira got down on one knee and popped the question at his home.
“I followed a trail of rose petals all the way to his bed,” she told Us Weekly of the proposal which also featured a large heart made of petals surrounding the letters A and C. “The A was first, which I thought was really cute. He proposed and then we laid in the roses.”
The pair had been dating for a year, though they have known each other for 14 years, well before Pivarnick’s tumultuous time on Jersey Shore.
“We always liked each other, but I believe God brought us together at the right time,” the New York-based EMT worker added.
This is Pivarnick’s third engagement -- the star was previously engaged to David Kovacs in 2011 and Louie Gero in 2016.
Her “I do” will come after several other Jersey Shore weddings, most recently including Deena Cortese, who joined the MTV cast after Pivarnick’s sudden departure from season 2, which was shot in Miami.
The other cast members -- minus Sammi “Sweetheart Giancola -- will soon be returning to the Sunshine State for a highly anticipated series revival dubbed Jersey Shore Family Vacation, set to air on MTV in 2018.
