NEW YORK (August 21, 2006) — ?Rock Star: Supernova? host Brooke Burke and former ?Baywatch? star David Charvet have two reasons to celebrate: they are getting married and expecting a child together, People magazine reports.
Charvet proposed during a “summertime party” he threw on Saturday night, Burke told People.
“It was a total surprise,” she said. “It was all very romantic. He’s my best friend.”
Charvet gave his new fiancÃ©e an eternity band engagement ring because “it’s forever,” Burke said, adding that the two of them (who are both 34) have known each other for years — but started dating last year, during ?Rock Star: Inxs.?
At the time, Burke had just split from husband Garth Fisher, a plastic surgeon featured on ABC’s ?Extreme Makeover.? She and Garth have two daughters — Neriah, 6, and Sierra, 4 — who have on occasion come with mom to tapings of the series at Stage 36 of CBS Television City.
Burke says her two kids love Charvet and the older one “knows we’re happy.”
As for the baby to be, Burke confirmed to People that she is indeed expecting. Supernova drummer Tommy Lee had mentioned that Burke told the band the good news last weekend, when he went on a Star 98.7 radio show in Los Angeles.
From 1999 to 2002, Burke was the host of ?E!’s Wild On!?
She has also made guest appearances on TV shows including ?Monk? and ?Las Vegas.?
Charvet played Matt Brody on ?Baywatch? from 1992 to 1995 and Craig Field on ?Melrose Place? from 1996 to 1998.
