Mario Falcone proposes to girlfriend Becky Miesner
The Towie regular shared his happy news earlier today, posting on Instagram a photo of him popping the question in idyllic Santorini, Greece.
He wrote: “She said YES!! Very very happy and lucky.”
Mario and Becky got together shortly after his fling with Vicky Pattison ended in August last year.
Unlike other reality stars, he has tried to keep their relationship as private as possible, but it was clear he thought he had found The One.
The 29-year-old, who returned to Towie this year, also admitted that Becky, 28, was the first girlfriend he had wanted to have children with.
Speaking to OK! magazine, the couple revealed that they first met at Becky’s dad’s 60th birthday and that they had been “inseparable” ever since.
Mario went on to admit that he “loves kids” and that his whole family really love Becky.
He added: “She’s the first girlfriend they’ve really warmed to, so they’re like: ‘Get married, have babies!’”
The Towie star admitted that he’d have children “now”.
Mario said: “I love children and I think I’m in a relationship that’s stable enough and my life now is stable enough to have children.”
Similarly, a pal of the handsome tailor told The Sun’s Bizarre column that he had been planning to propose for a while.
They said: “Mario is crazy about Becky and she feels the same way.
“He has been planning to propose to her and can’t wait to show the world how serious he is.”
The pair confirmed their romance last year and in a matter of weeks had already moved in together.
In an Instagram post Mario wrote: “Today I am a happy man. My girlfriend has moved into mine and made it our home #blessed.”
But today it seems she has made him even happier by agreeing to become Mrs. Falcone.
Mario was previously engaged to his TOWIE co-star Lucy Mecklenburgh, but he has hinted he regretted asking her to marry him.
Mario has admitted that he wouldn’t have proposed to Lucy if he hadn’t been in Towie.
The 28-year-old has revealed that, while he doesn’t regret proposing, he felt pressured to do so by the ITVBe show’s bosses.
Mario got down on one knee and popped the question back in 2012 on an extravagant yacht while filming The Only Way Is Marbs.
He made the moment extra special by covering the deck with rose petals and making sure there was a bottle of champagne in a cooler.
Speaking to Star magazine about the flashy proposal, he said: “I had a lot of pressure on me at the time to do a big engagement. Maybe I wouldn’t have done that if I wasn’t on the show.”
Mario has also admitted that he no longer speaks to Lucy.
He said: “I wouldn’t [talk to her] out of respect for her new boyfriend and for Becky. There’s no bad blood there. We have both moved on with out lives and I think we are both in better places.”
