"Kirby was really, really, really surprised," Gayle tells Rach of the February proposal. And not only by the proposal itself, she explains, but by the fact that Gayle and Kirby's brother, Will, were in D.C. to help celebrate!
Kirby's now-fiancé, Virgil, arranged a brunch for the day after he proposed — and he secretly invited his whole family (who Gayle hadn't had the chance to meet!), plus Gayle and Will.
"He had arranged for his family to be there, Will and I to be there, and he told Kirby, 'We're just going to brunch with some friends,'" Gayle dishes. "So when she walked in and saw all of us, it was so nice."
And while Gayle is already prepared to start planning the wedding, she says Kirby has asked her mom to slow down so she can "just enjoy the engagement" for a couple months.
"So I've been told that I can't even bring it up," Gayle laughs. "It's amazing how your children can tell you what to do."
And in other exciting news, Gayle and Adam chatted with Rach about their Talbots for O Magazine collection. Gayle was even wearing a very stylish Talbots outfit — and she graciously modeled her look for our studio audience!
Hopefully this gave them some fashion inspo — because everyone in the audience went home with a $100 Talbots gift card!
