Robin and boyfriend Nicky were engaged on Christmas Day in Brazil — after Nicky’s second attempt at proposing! Read on for all the details about the ‘Mentalist’ star’s crazy engagement.
It might not be the best sign when it takes two tries to get someone to accept your marriage proposal, but Mentalist star Robin Tunney‘s new fiancé shouldn’t hold it against her. It’s not her fault she suddenly fell ill during boyfriend Nicky Marmet‘s first proposal attempt while the couple was vacationing in Brazil over Christmas!
Robin, 40, told Us Weekly, “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. Mercifully, I recovered and was healthy enough to accept the second time.”
About the second proposal, which happened on Christmas Day in Rio de Janeiro, she said, “I was shocked. I was too ill to notice anything was up in Bahia so he’d caught me completely off guard.”
Robin Tunney’s Sentimental Engagement Ring From Nicky Marmet
Of her beau, an interior designer, Robin says he’s an “amazing man” who did a fine job of selecting her new “beautiful rock.”
“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 told the publication. “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!”
Robin’s Earlier Marriage
This will be Robin’s second marriage. She was previously married to producer/director Bob Gosse from 1997 to 2002. Here’s to hoping the second time is the charm!
