Kovacs popped the question to Pivarnick, 24, Wednesday at STYLE360 Sachika's fashion show during New York Fashion Week. "It was so surreal," she told E! News of the big moment. "The ring is huge. So big."
"He's the sweetest guy I've ever met in my life," Pivarnick said of Kovacs. "He treats me with respect, he's like a real gentleman. He doesn't treat me like s--t like so many people have treated me in the past."
Pivarnick, who lives with Kovacs in Manhattan, says he hid the surprise well. "He was nervous, too, because he dropped the ring on the floor," she said. "All I thought in the moment basically was 'OMG. OMG.' I thought the way he did it was ballsy."
