Richard Wilkins shares the love with LA engagement

Wedding bells … Groom-to-be Richard Wilkins.

  • Wilkins engaged to LA-based girlfriend
  • Dinnigan ‘stunned’ by announcement
  • Wedding will be Wilkins’ fourth

THE shock engagement of Channel 9’s resident Romeo Richard Wilkins stunned more than his Today show audience yesterday, with friends close to the TV star sensationally claiming he had proposed to his former flame Collette Dinnigan just three months ago.

It is understood the fashion designer and mother of his fifth child, Estella, woke up to the news the red carpet reporter plans to wed his LA-based Aussie girlfriend, Rebecca Naso.

Sources close to Dinnigan alleged Wilkins had only recently confessed his “undying love” to style queen Dinnigan before close friends, during a period when the couple’s on-off relationship was back on again.

With the Nine star jetting out for Los Angeles yesterday, Wilkins was unable to comment on the claims, with a friend dismissing the suggestion of a Dinnigan proposal as being “highly unlikely.”

While Dinnigan has since begun dating Sydney travel entrepreneur Bradley Cocks, the couple’s inner circle claim Wilkins and Dinnigan “still see each other all the time” sharing custody of their child.

“In an ideal world they could have made it work, but it’s never going to happen,” a close friend told Confidential yesterday.

“To say Collette was stunned at his announcement so publicly on TV this morning was an understatement,” the source said.

Wilkins, who will be getting married for the fourth time, is believed to have popped the question to Naso, in her late 30s, in Paris two weeks ago.

The TV veteran was expected to reunite with his bride-to-be in LA where he is scheduled to interview US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

Naso, a former actress and divorced mother of two, is expected to return to be by Wilkins’ side at the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The couple met through Wilkins’ Nine colleague, Catriona Rowntree and paired up at her wedding in April this year.
