Firebrand conservative and single father to an adopted college-freshman son from Cuba, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is getting married. Last night, the outspoken congressman popped the question to his 26-year-old girlfriend, and she said, “yes!”
After Judge Jeanine posted an adorable photo of a clearly smitten Gaetz with the caption, “Congressman Matt Gaetz asked, and Ginger said ‘yes.’ Rep Gaetz re-tweeted the photo, thanking Judge Jeanine for sharing the “moment” with them.
Thank you for sharing the moment with us Judge! https://t.co/w9Mejm46mZ

From the New York Post – The Florida congressman popped the question Wednesday night to his girlfriend Ginger Luckey — whose brother is Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey, the Pensacola News Journal reported.
A video was taken of the engagement by conservative talk show host Dr. Gina Loudon. Judge Jeanine Pirro was seated at the table with the couple when he popped the question, and Tiffany Trump was first to hug the newly engaged couple. It’s quite possible the engagement took place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.
So on an ordinary night at the most beautiful place in the world, this just happened…

The Republican’s soon-to-be wife, 26, is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and currently an analyst at Apeel, a biotechnology firm in California that helps keep food fresh, according to her LinkedIn.
Luckey’s college-dropout brother Palmer offloaded his virtual reality startup to Facebook in 2014 for a cool $2 billion.
Gaetz’s engagement comes after he raised eyebrows last month for his flirtatious reply on Tiffany Trump’s photo — which included heart eyes and a fire emoji.
The close Trump ally’s relationship status at the time wasn’t known, but in early December, he tweeted a photo of him, and Luckey dressed up at the White House.
Congratulations on your engagement, Matt Gaetz and Ginger Luckey!
