The ‘Summer House’ stars, who began dating last October, are taking the next step in their relationship by getting engaged following a romantic proposal at Southhampton’s Dune Beach.
AceShowbiz -Wedding bells are ringing for Lindsay Hubbard and Carl Radke. The “Summer House” stars are taking the next step in their relationship by getting engaged following a romantic proposal at Southhampton’s Dune Beach.
“I was so surprised, I’m still in shock!” Hubbard told PEOPLE of the proposal, which will be featured in the reality show’s upcoming seventh season. Radke, meanwhile, admitted, “It was quite the whirlwind throwing off Lindsay. She’s a tough one to catch off guard!”
For the proposal, Radke brought Hubbard to a group bonfire and he told her that they had to arrive early with firewood to set up. Hubbard found herself in an intimate picnic instead. “I got there and was like, ‘Umm, I’m starting to think we’re not having a bonfire,’ ” Hubbard shared.
“As we got there, I told her, ‘We haven’t had time to have alone time this summer, and I wanted to do something special,’ ” Radke recalled. “And I had the ring in a beach bag that she was carrying that I snuck in there. And she turned her back, and I figured, ‘This is my chance’ and I grabbed the ring, got down on one knee, and I turned her around and told her I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her, how happy I was, and that our love story was just beginning.”
Hubbard then raved, “He said, ‘Will you marry me?’ and I said, ‘A thousand times, yes!’ And he said, ‘Hold on, let me get the ring’ and I was like, ‘I don’t care! When should we get married? Now? I’m ready!’ “
As for the ring, Radke opted for a sparkling Nicole Rose ring featuring a 3.5-carat square brilliant cut cushion with two half-moon diamonds on the side. Hubbard loved it as she dubbed the band “the most incredible thing I have ever laid eyes on, except Carl.” She continued, “I don’t think I slept at all last night, I think I just stared at this ring. It’s gorgeous. He really crushed it, it could not have been more perfect.”
Following the proposal, the couple headed to Dockers Waterside Marina & Restaurant. Their friends and family, including Hubbard’s dad and step-mother who flew in from Florida for their first visit to the Hamptons, were waiting for them. Also among those who were present to celebrate their engagement were their “Summer House” co-stars, including Kyle Cooke, Danielle Olivera, Paige DeSorbo and Mya Allen.
“That’s when it all became real to me,” Hubbard shared. “Until that point, I was like, ‘Is this happening right now?’ But when I saw my parents and some of my best friends who don’t even live in New York who had flown in, I knew it wasn’t just a dream. And I just lost it. I lost it. I started hysterically crying.”
Radke then spilled that he and Hubbard are planning to have another engagement party in New York. This time, the couple hopes that his mom and their friends who couldn’t make it would be able to celebrate with them.
