Lauren Conrad had no indication that William Tell was planning to pop the question in mid-October. Covering the January 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan, the 27-year-old fashion designer reveals that she "had no idea" the University of Southern California student was ready to get engaged. "I thought he would wait until he finished law school," Conrad says.
Even the ex-reality star's pals were kept in the dark about Tell's proposal plans. In fact, the former Something Corporate rocker didn't even consult her closest confidants when he picked out an engagement ring. "He didn't even ask my friends, which was a bold move," Conrad tells the mag. "He said, 'I know you, and I know what you like.' And I love it. It's perfect."
