CHRISTY McGinity has announced her engagement to her boyfriend Gonzo, a year after the couple suffered the loss of their newborn child.
The Little Women LA stars lost their daughter Violet two weeks after her birth in March of 2020.
Christy, 43, has shared the news of her engagement in a sweet Instagram collage, as she gushed in excitement for her “love journey.”
The reality star posted several photos of the special moment as Gonzo got down on one knee and the couple shared happy tears.
The LifeTime star captioned her post: “We’re Engaged! I’m so happy to tell the world that this wonderful man got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever.
“It was such a heart felt moment, and evening. I can’t wait to share our love story with you, as we continue on this beautiful journey of growth, love, and hope. 🤟🏼💍 #engaged#happiness.”
Christy and her fiancée suffered a terrible tragedy just over a year ago when they lost their firstborn child two weeks after her birth.
The baby tragically passed on March 20th, 2020, and the couple recently took a beach trip to honor Violet on the anniversary of her passing.
The TV personality shared several photos of the mourning parents as they enjoyed The Maritime Aquarium and the beach in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Gonzo also shared moments during their trip, as he captioned his sentimental post: “Christy and I took the day to honor our sweet daughter as she passed away one year ago today.
“We went to the @maritimeaquarium together appreciating life and living it one day at a time. #VioletEva 💜.”
Christy and Gonzo have been open about their crippling loss, and they initially shared the devastating news in a statement last year.
“It is with our deepest sorrow that we send our baby girl Violet Eva Carazo to play with the angels.
“We were able to spend two weeks with our sweet baby girl and for that we are forever thankful.”
Christy previously told The Sun that they postponed funeral services for their daughter because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple revealed that they wanted her memorial to be in New York where Gonzo and his family reside.
She explained: “We are going to have a memorial of some type and spread her ashes.
“I was hoping the ocean. I’m going to bring Violet’s ashes to New York as soon as it’s safe for me to fly.”
The California native’s daughter was born premature at 33 weeks, contributing to her health complications.
Christy also shares her 21-year-old daughter Autumn and son Trenton with her ex-husband Todd Gibel.
Violet was Gonzo’s first child, and on the anniversary of her death the grieving father wrote: “You made me a dad and for that I’m forever grateful. You gave your Mom and I two amazing weeks that we’ll always treasure forever.
“We still cry and think about you everyday. Until we meet again my Angel.”
