Congratulations Patti Stanger!

I’m tickled to report that “The Millionaire Matchmaker” herself, Patti Stanger, is engaged!

After honestly exploring her conflicted feelings about matrimony throughout the two seasons of her Bravo show, I was surprised to hear the good news, which was reported by Us Weekly. The 48-year-old Jersey girl accepted the proposal by her boyfriend of 5 1/2 years, Andy Friedman, on her birthday in Maui.

(I wonder if he said, “Let’s get Mauied” like Aidan did to Carrie in “Sex and the City.”)

“I feel like it should have happened years ago, so I’m kind of shocked,” the Short Hills native confides to Us.

As far as the 4-carat ring is concerned, Patti says, “I have a rule, if you go out a year and he doesn’t propose, it goes up a carat a year.”

It seems like Patti and Andy, 51, have different thoughts on the actual ceremony, which is scheduled for sometime next year.

“I want to elope, and he wants a big wedding,” she tells Us. “I’m like, ‘Let’s go to Vegas!'”

Maybe now all of the nonsense comments can stop about how Patti doesn’t know how to make matches because she’s not married. Maybe she’s just more cautious and isn’t willing to get married until she knows it’s right.
