‘She said YES!!’: ‘Very very happy’ Mario Falcone revealed he is engaged to girlfriend Becky Miesner after less than a year of dating, sharing this snap on Instagram on Sunday

The TOWIE hunk later shared a post of the lovers toasting to their engagement, with Becky’s huge diamond ring on her left hand catching glimpses of the light.
Mario’s previous engagement to Lucy Mecklenburgh came to a memorably acrimonious end in 2012, after it was revealed that he’d been unfaithful to her.
And he threw some major shade at his ex back in April, by suggesting that his close-knit family didn’t ever particularly care for her during their ill-fated romance.

Gushing about his latest relationship to OK! magazine, the 29-year-old said: ‘I love kids. My whole family love Becky. She’s the first girlfriend they’ve really warmed to, so they’re like: “Get married, have babies!”
‘I’d have them now,’ he continued. ‘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.’
The loved up couple began dating last summer, and reality TV star Mario admitted to the publication that he already sees Becky as the mother of his children.

However, Becky, 28, was hesitant, saying that although she didn’t believe you had to be married to have children, she would at least like to be engaged before she became a mum.
I’d like an engagement first,’ the brunette explained. ‘I’m not one that has to be married before kids, but I’d definitely like that commitment.’
Mario teased that a proposal was definitely coming. ‘I’m planning to propose maybe later this year or next,’ he told the publication.
The couple began dating in the summer of 2016, and after sharing a host of loved-up snaps from their holiday, fans have begged Mario to propose.

Mario had previously hinted at engagement plans with the petite beauty after he posted a video of Becky dancing captioned: ‘I truly hope and pray I marry this girl one day!’
The reality star also spoke out on his previous engagement to TOWIE co-star Lucy Mecklenburgh to OK!, who he proposed to on the hit reality show.
Although the couple were engaged, the Essex native insists that it ‘wasn’t a real one’ and that he will consider his future engagement to Becky as his one and only.
Asked about cheating on the boutique owner, Mario said that he regretted his actions, but had learned from them.
