Hannah Berner is a committed woman!
The Summer House star said ‘yes’ to boyfriend Des Bishop after a whirlwind of romance, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal. The Irish comedian asked the question on Valentine’s Day.
“We are very excited,” Berner told PEOPLE. “It all happened very quickly, but when you know it, you know it.”
For the proposal, Bishop, 45, surprised Berner, 29, with a special appeal early in their relationship.
“When we first started dating, Des would send me this really funny video, singing videos, that made me laugh,” says Bravo’s chat room host. “On Valentine’s Day, I woke up to a video of him singing, which I hadn’t seen since the summer. And then it ends with him saying, “I have a surprise for you. ”
Berner says he turned to find Bishop on one knee.
“I’m in bed with my Invisalign on and my breathing is terrible,” he jokes. “And he’s kneeling on the side, then he just pulls out the ring.” I think I just made some weird screams.
Berner and Bishop started dating in July after contacting her on Instagram. The couple say they had an immediate connection.
“I was pretty sure Hannah was the right one for me,” Bishop says. “When I first met her I immediately thought she was beautiful, but wanted to spend all my time with her because she is so funny.”
“He lets me be me and we laugh together. I make him laugh and he makes me laugh,” Berner adds. “I really fell in love with the way his mind works. And I really listen to his advice, and I really respect him.”
As for the ring? Berner says her new fiance has been successful. Bishop gave Berner a round, shiny stone set on an 18k yellow gold ring.
“It’s perfect because I can wear it with my sweatshirt. I can wear it with more style, ”he says. “And I feel like he’s, as my friends would say, quite me.”
And the couple, who met and got engaged amid a global pandemic, have no plans to slow down anytime soon.
“We want to get married as soon as possible,” Berner says. “He’s my best friend. Why wait?”
