Sandra Lee and her new hunky boyfriend Ben Youcef are rumored to be engaged!
Andrew Cuomo's long term ex was spotted in Paris looking very bride-like and wearing a gorgeous bit of bling on her ring finger as she caught her new man in a warm embrace.
The couple happily hugged, chatted, and took pictures in the street before sharing dinner at the upscale French bistro L’Avenue on Saturday, August 14.
It wasn't only the huge, shimmering rock on the Semi-Homemade cook's finger that sparked rumors of an engagement. Their casual yet stylish outfits also brought wedding bells to mind. The bestselling 55-year-old author was rocking a gorgeous white dress with a floral shoulder strap pattern, and a pair of sparkly flats.
The 46-year-old actor and producer was dressed to impress in a white tee, black leather jacket, black pants, and white shoes. He was suspiciously also wearing a ring.
A source reportedly close with Youcef exclusively told New York Post the romantic getaway happened because the interfaith leader was eager to cheer up Lee amidst the scandals surrounding her high profile politician ex, Andrew Cuomo.
"Ben really wanted to distract Sandra from all the news, so he whisked her away to Paris." The source said. "He knows how hard this has been on her and he wants to make sure she feels loved and supported."
This comes only days after the embattled politician resigned from his position as Governor of New York as sexual harassment allegations continued to pile up around him.
Despite the rings, not everyone seems to be so sure the seemingly head-over-heels pair are ready to tie the knot just yet.
"He seems to be a good match," a source said of the happy couple according to PEOPLE. "He has a deep understanding of all of Sandra's worlds from her professional life to her dedicated focus on family and commitment to philanthropy."
The source also noted that though wedding bells could be in the future, for now it's speculation. "They are really enjoying each other, but it is just rumors for now."
Neither Lee nor Youcef have confirmed the possible engagement.
