Congratulations are in order for Million Dollar Listing New York’s Ryan Serhant and his new fiance, Emilia Bechrakis! Fans of the show are probably not shocked to hear that the pair became engaged last weekend but exactly how Ryan popped the question was definitely a big surprise!
“No one has ever done something like this. But I’m only going to propose once in my life so I wanted to make sure that I did something special,” Ryan told E! News. “I wasn’t going to propose like a p–sy.”
MDLNY fans know Ryan doesn’t do anything halfway. We watched last season as he choreographed a whole surprise dance production in Central Park for Emilia. So, I suppose he had to come up with something grand to propose!
So, how did it all go down? Well, Ryan somehow convinced his contacts at the Mayor’s Office and the Times Square Alliance to get them to shut down Times Square for an hour at 7am Sunday morning. Yes, you read that correctly. Shut. Down. Times. Square. As in…empty it out. Totally private. Just Ryan and Emilia:
And, apparently Ryan’s grand gesture worked! Emilia, of course, said yes. “It worked!” the MDLNY star gushed of his over-the-top proposal plan. “This is the most incredible day! Words really can’t describe what I’m feeling.”
As for the bride-to-be? “This was a complete surprise,” the future Mrs. Serhant told E! News. “I was not expecting this at all. He’s really outdone himself!”
You can say that again, Emilia! Not only did Ryan turn the most public place in New York City into a private venue to pop the question, he also did not disappoint when it came to the ring. Check out the stunning custom-made radiant-cut rock:
Yowza! Guess business must be going pretty well for Ryan this season! Speaking of business, Million Dollar Listing New York is currently filming Season 4 and, of course, Bravo cameras were on hand to capture all the touching, romantic moments from Ryan & Emilia’s proposal! Be sure to tune in to see how it all went down.
Are you happy for Ryan and Emilia? Sad Ryan is now officially off the market??
