Braunwyn Windham-Burke began the new year with some bling and a “promise.”
The “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum and her girlfriend of less than five months, Jennifer Spinner, sported flashy diamond rings in Windham-Burke’s quickly deleted Instagram Story Monday, sparking engagement rumors.
“We started 2023 with a promise ❤️,” the former reality star wrote atop a photo of her left hand placed over Spinner’s right as the two were in a car, road-tripping from Wilmington, NC, to Charleston, SC.
While both women showed off silver eternity bands, Windham-Burke’s was notably on her left ring finger — where an engagement ring would normally go.
“You really never know. Braunwyn is Braunwyn!” a source close to the mother of seven — who came out as a lesbian in 2020 — tells Page Six exclusively regarding a potential proposal. “I do know that the two are madly in love.”
Our insider adds that Windham-Burke’s children — Bella, 22, Rowan, 20, Jacob, 17, twins Caden and Curren, 9, Koa, 7, and Hazel, 4 — as well as her estranged husband, Sean Burke, “love” Spinner.
Additionally, we’re told there is a significant reason behind the lovebirds’ road trip, as they are “searching for a forever home for the family.”
Our source says the couple are looking in the Southern states and also have plans to check out Tennessee.
They seemed to be particularly taken by Wilmington, though, calling the historic, riverfront city “pretty great” in Windham-Burke’s videos.
“We are looking for a place to raise the little kids,” the ex-Bravolebrity, 45, said in one clip, adding, “The people have been so nice.”
Spinner, 38 — who splits her time between New York and Germany — pointed out that her family also lives in Wilmington.
Although Windham-Burke — who filed for divorce from Burke in October — previously said she most likely wouldn’t get married again, she admitted she might “change [her] mind” for Spinner — her first “mentally stable” partner.
“There would be something nice [about] walking down an aisle and see[ing her] waiting for me,” Windham-Burke told us last month. “That would be pretty beautiful.”
“You love here. I love her so much,” she added. “You just, you love here.”
