Lala Kent has a lot to celebrate.
The Vanderpump Rules starlet turned 28 on Sunday and got engaged to her boyfriend Randall Emmett on Saturday. The couple, who was vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, hopped on a private plane for a spontaneous trip to Las Vegas where they gathered with fellow Vanderpump cast-mates for some celebrating.
A source told E! News that Emmett and Kent dined with Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Tom Sandoval, Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz at TAO. The insider said the group of friends enjoyed a multi-course dinner, Sandoval gave a speech and they all did a round of shots. Kent even got a dessert with sparklers on it as her friends sang “Happy Birthday” to her.
After dinner, the friends headed to the club Marquee, where their engagement photo was projected on the club’s 40-foot screen and enjoyed a performance by Nas.
Emmett popped the question to his love and Kent called it “the best night of my life.” She shared pictures of the two of them kissing beneath fireworks as well as an up-close look at her ring. “I got engaged to the man of my dreams. I get to call this amazing human my fiancé! An engagement last night, my birthday today, and every sign my dad could possibly send me to let me know he’s here. I’m the happiest girl in the world,” she wrote.
Her father Kent Rulon Burningham died in April, but Emmett apparently asked for his blessing to marry Lala before he passed away.
The jeweler Richie Rich from Leon Diamond in New York gave E! News exclusive details about the engagement ring. According to Rich, he and Emmett had been discussing the jewelry for six months and then it was built two months ago. The ring “has a bit over six carats in total” and “the stone goes for about $150,000.”
Congratulations to the couple and happy (belated) birthday, Lala!
