Valerie Bertinelli Engaged; Will Be Step-Mom of Four!

Valerie Bertinelli who recently turned 50 just announced she is engaged to her beau of six years, businessman Tom Vitale, 48.  Vitale proposed with a  5-carat sparkler that diamond expert David Mamane estimates cost a cool $120k.

Bertinelli won’t just be gaining a husband, she’ll be gaining four step-children who range in age fro 11 to 19, while Vitale will become a stepfather to Wolfie, 19, Bertinelli’s son from her marriage to rocker Eddie Van Halen.

Bertinellis says in the July / August issue of AARP magazine:

“We’d talked about getting married, but I was still shocked. It was sweet when he asked me, because he was so scared. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’  Vitale proposed on a recent trip to Florence.

The couple will tie the knot this fall, with Vitale doing the bulk of the wedding planning — congrats!
