Just in time to be a Real Housewife. Actress Denise Richards (and soon-to-be cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) is engaged to boyfriend Aaron Phypers, according to People.

A source told the mag that Richards and Phypers recently got engaged and would prefer to marry as soon as possible. “The engagement has been a long time coming,” the insider told People. “He moved on from his past relationship a long time ago, and marrying Denise is a welcome new chapter for both of them in different but equally significant ways.”

Phypers was previously married to Desperate Housewives actress Nicollette Sheridan. The pair separated in 2016 after six months of marriage, but only finalized their split last month.

Richards, meanwhile, was married to Charlie Sheen for three years until their separation was official in 2006. The Anger Management actor and Richards share two teenage daughters Sam, 14, and Lola, 13. Richards also adopted a third daughter named Eloise, now 7, in 2011.

The couple will supposedly marry before an intimate group of family members and friends. “Denise and Aaron just want a small group of people to be at the wedding, really just their inner circle,” the insider expressed. “They’ve both done this before and this time just want to exchange vows in front of the people who are most important.”

The life update coincides with another big personal and professional life development for Richards, who was recently announced as the newest cast member to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills opposite Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna.
