Valerie Bertinelli just turned 50 this month (can you believe it?) and now the Jenny Craig spokeswoman is getting ready to celebrate another milestone, a wedding to her long time love, businessman Tom Vitale.

Vitale, 48, proposed on a romantic trip to Florence. The couple have been together for 6 years. “We’d talked about getting married, but I was still shocked. It was sweet when he asked me, because he was so scared. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?'” Valerie told AARP magazine for their upcoming July/August issue.

The wedding is set for this fall. Valerie, currently starring in the TV Land show Hot in Cleveland , says she’s leaving the planning all up to Vitale. “He already knows the different kinds of bells he wants to go off during the ceremony,” she said

Valerie, who has struggled with her weight her entire life, has lost more than 40 lbs since signing on as a Jenny Craig spokeswoman in 2007. She credits being with Tom for encouraging her to continue losing weight and staying healthy.

“I’ve never felt more beautiful at any weight than when Tom looks at me,” she said. “He loved me no matter what. In his way, he’s teaching me to love myself just as I am.”

This will be Valerie’s second marriage. She was previously married to rocker Eddie Van Halen, with whom she has a 19-year-old son Wolfie.
