MONTREAL (RushPRnews)03/06/09-Weeks after Us Weeklyâ€™s report, and days since a flurry of blogging buzz started Wednesday, it has been confirmed: confirmed bachelor and â€œWedding Crasherâ€ Vince Vaughn is indeed engaged to Canadian hotty Kyla Weber.
The engagement was confirmed Thursday by the Bride-to-beâ€™s father, in an interview with the Montreal Gazette.
The 29-year-old Weber has become a web curiosity since reports started swirling of a Vince Vaughn Valentineâ€™s Day proposal, complete with four-carat, $125,000 ring and one knee delivery. Rumors are less clear as to how the happy couple met; vacations in Venice, CA, and Italy are mentioned, and a movie producer friend of Vaughnâ€™s is being credited with making the introductions.
â€œIt’s the biggest ring I’ve ever seen,â€ said Sylvia Smith, a fellow realtor of Weberâ€™s, from their Royal Lepage office. â€œIt’s magnificent. It’s a great big diamond surrounded by other circular diamonds.â€
Smith says Weber blushed while her former co-workers ogled the show-stopping ring during her visit to the old office a few days ago.
â€œShe’s very happy but Kyla is not a boastful kind of person,â€ Smith explained. â€œShe’s quiet and kind. She’s just a true Albertan girl. She’s not the Hollywood type.â€ Letâ€™s hope that continues to be a positive trait for the raven-haired beauty in the future.
Smith also said the office has been fielding calls from American celebrity magazines.
â€œWe’ve never commented,â€ she said. â€œWe’ve always kept it that way and she’s thanked us a million times for keeping it that way.â€
Once bitten, twice shy for Vaughn. After previous high-profile romances, most notably with â€œFriendsâ€ star Jennifer Aniston, the 38-year-old actor can be forgiven for trying to keep this one a little more hush-hush.
â€œI donâ€™t talk much about private matters,â€ Vaughn told USA Today last year. Alluding to todayâ€™s news, he let slip â€œBut I am in a very happy, serious, committed relationship.â€
In Touch Magazine spoke with a friend of Vaughnâ€™s in December who more-than-hinted the bachelor actor was looking to settle down.
â€œVince is ready to get married and has been for a while,â€ said the friend. â€œHe wants to start a family.â€
Incidentally, Vaughnâ€™s Canadian-born mother was also a real estate agent, so perhaps this has been the missing, familiar â€œsomethingâ€ all this time.
No other details regarding the wedding have been released.
