Kent and her boyfriend, producer Randall Emmett, sealed the deal at a weekend party to celebrate Kent's 28th birthday at the Esperanza An Auberge Resort in Cabo San Lucas. Kent described the proposal as "the most romantic moment of [her] life!"
Details of the engagement proceedings included a giant screening of Kent's favorite show, Friends, followed by Emmett taking the knee with that giant diamond. Fireworks launched after Kent said yes. Kent stated that she can't wait to put as much detail into planning their wedding as Emmett did in planning their engagement.
The couple went public with their relationship in January 2018, following finalization of Emmett's divorce from actress Ambyr Childers, who previously referred to Lala Kent as Emmett's mistress in a tweet in April 2018. Kent joined the cast of Bravo's Vanderpump Rules in season 4.
