"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star housewife Caroline Manzo has something to be excited about- her only daughter Lauren Manzo has gotten engaged to longtime boyfriend Vito Scalia.

On her blog, Caroline Manzo wrote, "My baby is engaged!!!" and posted a picture.

And Caroline isn't the only one who is overjoyed. Lauren spoke to Us Weekly about her excitement.

"I'm so incredibly happy!! I'm in shock. I'm so excited to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Well he was my brothers' best friend first, but I stole him!" Lauren Manzo said.

Her brother Albie Manzo chimed in via the social networking site Twitter.

"Any guess on what the big news is??? Congratulations to @laurenmanzo and @vitoscalia3 Absolutely couldn't be happier, love you both!!!!" He tweeted about the engagement.

Despite this exciting news, there will be less of the Manzo family on Bravo's hit show "Real Housewives of New Jersy" this year. Caroline Manzo previously announced that she will not be returning to the show.

She took to the Bravo TV blog to disccuss why she decided to leave the show.

"Over the past few years my outlook on the show has changed from something I couldn't wait to show my future grandchildren to something I hope my future grandchildren never see," she began. "I've always prided myself on being a good example for my children and my decision to leave is based on advice I've always given them: 'Be true to yourself and be proud of who you are, you are born with a name and you die with a name, don't dirty it up.'"

Despite leaving "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Manzo will still work with Bravo. She has a new show with the network entitled "Manzo'd with Children." She also wrote about her new show on the blog.

"We are having an absolute blast filming ['Manzo'd with Children'], and I hope you all join us as we start our new chapter within the Bravo network. We didn't close the book, we just turned the page," she added.
