The happy news comes a little under two months after Us exclusively reported that they had started dating.
One source tells Us that James, 25, was “completely taken by surprise” by the proposal. “She had no idea it was coming,” the source spilled. “She knew things were going well and that this was something special, but she didn't think he'd propose so quickly.”
“The wedding is going to be spectacular,” the source added, noting that Iannello, 73, has already promised James full reign for the wedding of her dreams.
The pair purportedly met through Max Iannello, Iannello's son and a frequent collaborator of James', in 2016, but sparks didn't fly until September of this year.
“They had always been on good terms, but something just sort of clicked - he took her out to dinner one night, and that was it, they were inseparable,” continued the source. Many assume that dinner was when the pair were spotted in Rome on September 5.
They went on to essentially tour through Europe not long after, spotted in Paris on September 12 and in Berlin only a few days later. Iannello even visited the set of Little Women in October, and he proposed while having a private dinner on October 27.
Many were surprised by the romance, but another source said that “as soon as you meet them, you get it. They work really well together.”
Well, here's hoping we get a peek into the sure to be fabulous wedding ahead!
