We went home the next day. I love the ring, it's beautiful!" She continued, "I knew he was the guy for me, but it wasn't something that I had been expecting. My family knew. He had gone to each member to ask their permission."

    Since The City, the reality star turned designer has launched an eponymous line called Whitney Eve. We can't wait to see what she chooses for her wedding gown! But one thing's for sure - don't count on a Hills reunion at the wedding. "I think we all kind of went our separate ways once the show ended," Port has told People. "I'm fine with it, like I'm at peace with it. With me, I never feuded with anyone, and nothing ever ended badly, so it just naturally happened."

    Congratulations to the happy couple!
