Good things come in threes, and Emily Simpson has proof of this. During the April 13 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the mom received a triple-threat of surprises (all of which were extremely sparkly) during a belated wedding photo shoot she did with her husband, Shane Simpson.
In the episode, Emily explained that she and Shane got married late one night in Las Vegas, and because of this (as well as a toddler who “threw a tantrum”), they were unable to get any snapshots from their ceremony. Now, after years of putting work into their marriage and overcoming obstacles, the couple decided it was time to commemorate their special day with a (very belated) professional photo shoot.
For the occasion, Emily channeled bridal vibes in a gorgeous white strapless gown that featured a long, sheer cape and high slit on one side. (Not to mention, a 35-carat marquise diamond necklace.) The attorney was radiant as she made her way to her husband.
“You look beautiful, but you’re missing something,” Shane told her as he pulled out a stunning ring with a large center stone and pave band and slid it onto her finger. “It’s not over yet,” he told her. “This is an engagement ring and then we got married,” Shane said while taking a second pave band from their son Keller and putting it on Emily’s hand. “Then we hit 10 years which was a big deal for you,” he added as he reached into their other son Luke’s pocket for a third and final diamond band.
Emily showed off her three stunning new jewelry pieces before she kissed her husband. “It’s like everything I’ve ever wanted in my life really came true,” she said. “It’s like a fairy tale.”
In the episode, Emily revealed why she didn’t have any rings to mark her partnership with Shane. “He did give me a wedding ring, not an engagement ring,” she said. “However, I haven’t been able to find it for three years.”
