A Real World favorite is definitely done with her party days—she's officially off the market!

Trishelle Cannatella, who rose to fame back in 2002 on The Real World: Las Vegas, announced she's engaged to boyfriend John Hensz, a fighter pilot who serves with the Louisiana National Guard and works for Delta Airlines.

Hensz went all out to pop the question, wooing and wowing his now-fiancée with a New Orleans proposal straight out of a fairy tale.

"My engagement was amazing," Cannatella told toofab. "He completely surprised me."

After a brunch with her sister, Cannatella spotted a few friends outside listening to a jazz band. At first, she thought it was a total coincidence, until she started running into more and more friends.

"At that point, I realized that the jazz band was following us and we had police escorts. Then [we] ran into more friends, who gave me a parasol. So we all danced down the street in the French Quarter until we reached Jackson Square, and my daddy and stepmom and more friends were there, and [John] got down on one knee in the park in front of the church with the band playing!" Cannatella said.

Cannatella broke the big news to fans via Twitter, posting, "Soooooo in other news....some poor guy asked me to be his wife. And I said hell yes." In a follow-up tweet, she thanked the NOPD for escorting her and her beau through the French Quarter.

The 36-year-old met her man in New Orleans, about an hour away from her hometown of Cut Off, La.

After her Real World run, Cannatella appeared on a number of reality shows, including Punk'd and Fear Factor, and posed for Playboy.
