Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers are all set to get married! The 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Alum has got engaged to her loving boyfriend, multiple sources have confirmed.

Of the couple's engagement, a source exclusively told PEOPLE,

Aaron and Denise just got engaged and would love to be married sooner than later now that his divorce is finally in his past. The engagement has been a long time coming. 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.

The insider continued,

The two of them are very happy and have settled into life with one another, so now they’re pretty focused on getting this very intimate ceremony off the ground. They’re just ready to start their married life together.

The source also noted that the two are "extremely happy," before revealing Aaron is down to appear on the RHOBH, on which Denise was just cast.

The source said,

He’s on board with the drama that the show might bring, and Denise is a total pro with this. She’s done it before and knows how to navigate life on and off camera even when the show gets blurred with reality. He seems to care for her in a real way and is up for whatever she throws at him and vice versa. They’re a good team.

As for the couple's upcoming wedding, none of them wants an opulent affair.

The source added,

Denise and Aaron just want a small group of people to be at the wedding, really just their inner circle. They’ve both done this before and this time just want to exchange vows in front of the people who are most important.

Denise and Aaron have been dating since late 2017; they were first spotted together in public in September of that year.

Since making the relationship official, the duo has documented their romance on Instagram. They have shared photos of them on Instagram from kisses on the beach to romantic trips to a ski resort in Whitefish, Montana.
