"I just remember meeting him at dinner at this place, this Italian restaurant, because when I get a pass, I just want to stuff my face with pasta," she said. "So I get there and, I mean, he's like clean-shaven. He's not wearing tennis shoes. I'm like, 'Ah s… something is going down!' We were ordering everything and I was like, 'Who is this person?!' I got on a helicopter and he asked me to marry him, and then we landed on this building and then went downstairs and my family and friends were there and the most flowers you've ever seen."
