The Mentalist star, Robin Tunney has gotten engaged to boyfriend, Nicky Marmet after she accepted his proposal on Christmas.
Marmet tried to pop the question but failed but on his second attempt in Rio de Janeiro, on Christmas day, she said yes. “He’d made an earlier attempt at the beach in Bahia, but I had what I thought was Dengue Fever and I threw up over his shoulder when he was about to take the ring out,” she said. “Mercifully, I recovered and was healthy enough to accept the second time.”
“I was shocked,” she added. “I was too ill to notice anything was up in Bahia so he’d caught me completely off guard.”
Talking about her ring, Tunney said, “The diamond was from his grandmother Mimi’s engagement ring and was reset by Ann Marie Stanton, a jeweler and dear friend of mine in Beverly Hills,” she recounted. “It means so much that it was his grandmother’s. She had a long and happy marriage to his grandfather. I like to think it’s good luck!”
Tunney has been married before to producer/director Bob Gosse from 1997 to 2002; this will be her second marriage.
