After a tumultuous on again, off again relationship that has played out in front of Bravo cameras over the past couple of years, Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer Coupon Cabin CEO Scott Kluth are officially engaged. Kluth dropped down on one knee this past weekend when the couple was in Chicago, and the big moment was captured on camera.
In a video obtained by E! News, Kluth proposed to Mortimer in front of the Chicago Water Tower while Christmas carolers sang on the steps behind them. Mortimer appeared to be shocked by the proposal, as she covered her face when she realized Kluth had gotten down on one knee. After saying yes, Mortimer bent over to give Kluth a kiss.

The news of the engagement comes just after Mortimer posted a video on Instagram of the couple sharing a kiss at TAO Chicago. In the caption, she wrote that it was the “best weekend ever.”
Earlier this month, rumors started to swirl that Mortimer had ditched her gig on RHONY and was planning to move to Chicago to be with Kluth when she missed a Season 12 shoot at a New York hotel. Insiders say that now that Mortimer is engaged, chances are she will move to the Windy City permanently.
Mortimer just confirmed the two were back together after they broke up at the end of Season 11. She also posted a pic on Instagram that Kluth took that featured her looking out at a rainbow in the sky over Chicago.
“Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue. And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true,” wrote Mortimer in the caption.
Mortimer and Kluth met during Season 9, and she has not been shy when it comes to discussing the relationship in front of Bravo cameras, both on RHONY and with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
Last year, Mortimer told Cohen during a WWHL appearance that he shouldn’t pressure her about it, and at the time they were broken up. She added that they break up all of the time, but the media didn’t pick up on that specific break in their relationship.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New York will return to Bravo in 2020.
