From the Jersey Shore to the altar, Deena Cortese is the latest MTV reality star expected to tie the knot. On Saturday, the 29-year-old New Egypt native excitedly revealed her longtime boyfriend Christopher Buckner popped the question in Mexico while they were celebrating their five-year anniversary.
What she thought was going to be a fun night out with bae, turned into a surprise romantic getaway she’d never forget. With the help of her co-workers, Christopher was able to plan the perfect weekend for him to express his love. As if that didn’t already give us serious relationship goals, he also picked out a ring that would give any girl butterflies.
“I always knew I would spend the rest of my life with Christopher,” Deena gushed on Instagram. “But last night while we were walking on the Beach in Mexico he made it official!! We’re engaged!!!!!”
A few hours later the former self-proclaimed “meatball” gave her followers a better look at her gorgeous diamond engagement ring, showing off various angles of the band and cut.
Deena was still in shock when she posted the photos to social media and who could blame her? Deena and Christopher, who appeared on Couple’s Therapy back in 2014, have proven time and time again that true love conquers all.
I felt like the other pictures didn't show how beautiful the ring was.. The pic on the left was me a little after he proposed after I was finished happy sobbing lol Christopher did such an amazing job picking me out the perfect ring .. It fits my little hand perfectly .. This still all doesn't feel real!!! I love you @cbuckner_ this weekend has been so amazing so far ❤️
Congrats to the happy couple!
