Valerie Bertinelli is engaged to her long time boyfriend Tom Vitale. The proposal took place on a recent trip to Florence, Italy.
“We’d talked about getting married, but I was still shocked,” Bertinelli tells AARP The Magazine. “It was sweet when he asked me, because he was so scared. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?'”
The couple are tying the knot this fall with Vitale taking on the role of wedding planner.
“If the time wasn’t right, I wouldn’t have asked,” he says. “We’re both still a little afraid of commitment, but then we were over there, and it was like our souls were calibrated.”
