"We met on a dating app," Bethenny, 50, told PEOPLE of the start of their relationship in 2018.
"I was pretty lucky when I walked in and saw him. He had a twinkle. He came as advertised – better than advertised. He overshot the mark."
Bethenny added that producer and real estate developer Paul, 43, proposed to her on an island.
"It was intimate. Just the two of us, on an island off of Florida. No makeup, no manicure, no ring photos. It was very simple and beautiful," she recalled.
"It felt like a strange thing to announce. That just felt counter-intuitive."
While she's not too focused on wedding plans at the moment, the Bravo star did joke: "I'm not going to be the old lady about to hit menopause going to the newsstand to buy bridal magazines. I'm like, 'What are you doing?'"
Bethenny didn't publicly announce her engagement, although she was spotted wearing a "$1million" ring during a beach trip in Florida with Paul and her daughter Bryn, 10 – who she shares with ex Jason Hoppy.
Bethenny and Paul got together in October 2018, two months after her boyfriend Dennis Shields died.
While his caused of death was never confirmed, it's believed that Dennis had a possible overdose.
Bethenny and Paul split in October last year but reconciled in February of this year.
The SkinnyGirl mogul confirmed on Valentine's Day that she and Paul were giving their relationship another try.
She posted a sexy snap of herself in a low-cut dress with Paul peering behind her, which she captioned: "Behind every woman… (you fill in the blanks here.)"
She added: "Happy Valentine’s Day xoxo #Loveyourself."
Their engagement comes after she finalized her divorce to her ex Jason on January 20 following eight years of legal battles.
Bethenny and pharmaceutical executive Jason filed for divorce in 2013 after three years of marriage.
They fought for years over custody of their daughter Bryn and financial matters.
