Vanderpump Rules’ Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright announce they are engaged

Congratulations to Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, who announced their engagement on Thursday night.

The reality TV stars took to Instagram to share their happy news, with Brittany showing off her stunning cushion-cut halo diamond engagement ring.

Sharing a close-up of her rock with a smiling Jax in the background, Brittany captioned the snap: ‘Omg omg!!!!!!!! We are ENGAGED!

‘What a way to start our summer and season 7!! I am so happy, so in love, and so beyond excited for this next chapter of our lives! I can’t wait for all of you to see how he proposed! I am the happiest girl ever right now,’ she wrote.

Sharing the same image on his Instagram, Jax said: ‘She said yes!!! I can’t wait for y’all to see how this happened next season!!! I am marrying the woman of my dreams and I could not be happier!!’

The couple began dating in 2015 but split up after Jax cheated on Brittany with a former co-worker from SUR restaurant, owned by star of the Vanderpump Rules show, Lisa Vanderpump.

‘He has betrayed me in so many ways,’ Brittany told the camera during an episode that aired in April.

‘He’s cheated on me, he’s begged for me back, he’s played mind games with me. And I know that he’s not changing and he’s always going to be the same Jax Taylor he always has been.’

But the couple’s love was too strong and they reconciled off camera, with Brittany later revealing that they are now in a much better place following Jax’s cheating scandal.

‘He just wasn’t going to give up on me,’ she Brittany revealed on E!’s Daily Pop when reliving their breakup.

‘I knew that I loved him still. I was trying to act like I didn’t. In the end, I’m just so glad where we are right now because we are so much better than we ever have been.’

Jax echoed his fiancée’s sentiment last month, while also admitting his father’s death made him realise Brittany was the right woman for him.

He told People: ‘We’ve kind of weathered the storm. We’re still going through it … [but] we’re in a great place now — probably better than we’ve ever been.’
