Mary-Kate Olsen said no to Olivier Sarkozy’s 1st proposal, now they want a baby

Mary Kate Olsen

These are some photos of Mary-Kate Olsen attending the Louis Vuitton show as part of Paris fashion week. I talked about the 27-year-old’s surprise engagement to 44-year-old Olivier Sarkozy over the weekend. Most of you agreed that this couple isn’t that strange at all because both parties are monied, and neither seemed to be using the other. Some of you mentioned that MK looks younger than her age while Olivier does (regretfully) look older than 44. I can see that, but I still think this is a good match.

Mary-Kate’s been flashing her new ring for the paps. We don’t have the photos, but you can see the ring here. MK must like the design, but it is a bit gaudy, no? Some people like gaudy. This week’s issue of Us Weekly says Olivier has been begging Mary-Kate to marry him for a year, and she finally said yes. Now she wants to get pregnant really fast. Hmm:

She took her time! Mark-Kate Olsen made sure fiance Olivier Sarkozy was the one before saying “yes” to an engagement. An insider reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly that Sarkozy first proposed months ago, but the fashion designer turned him down at the time.

“He tried about a year ago, and she wasn’t ready,” an insider tells Us in the March 17 issue’s Hot Stuff. “She didn’t need to be wined and dined. She wanted to make sure he would be good to her.”

Olsen, 27, and the French banker, 44, first went public with their relationship in 2012, and are also “talking about trying to get pregnant,” the source says.

Us exclusively broke news on Feb. 28 that Olsen and her older beau are engaged. “Mary-Kate’s family thinks Olivier is the best thing to happen to her,” an insider told Us of the former Full House star. “They love him.”

Olsen won’t have a hard time adjusting to motherhood, either. She’s already close to Sarkozy’s two children Julien, 12, and Margo, 10, from his previous marriage to Charlotte Bernard.

“Mary-Kate has made him a better father. She remembers all the kids’ special events,” a source added to Us. “She thinks he’s a great dad.”

Olsen has yet to confirm the engagement news herself, but has already shown off her new rock. The actress stepped out wearing her huge gold engagement ring in NYC on March 3.

This sounds like a done deal if Mary-Kate’s family adores him too. She dated some real doozies in the past, and I’m glad she’s no longer taking Paris Hilton’s castoffs. Plus — if these two are going to have children, they might as well start soon. Olivier’s not getting any younger. Just the other day, I finally broke it to my daughter that (since momma is now 39) she wouldn’t ever be getting the little sister she’s always wanted. She nodded and then said, “Yeah, because it wouldn’t go to college until you were 60.” Thanks, kid.

    I’m indifferent towards them as a couple

    Absolutely hate her ring though. So gaudy. Ugh

    Ha, awe kids are cute but they have no filters. My nephew told my mother that he loved her wrinkles. As for MK and Olivier, as long as they’re happy good for them, I’m kinda “meh” towards them.

      I know, right? My son was looking at pictures of a house for sale in our area with me this morning before school (gorgeous 1792 farmhouse) and he noticed the date, and said, ‘Wow! That was built 12 years after you were born.’ I laughed so hard as this is after he asked if I had television when I was little. We’re still working on history & years, obviously. 😉

    Still icky to me.

  4. Neffie says:

    Awww when i ask my 8 yr old if i look fat in something he always goes ‘yeah kinda’.

  5. lower-case deb says:

    the ring also doubles as a self-defense weapon, i gather. punch a hole in your jaw, if the Olsen Twins Gloom Power doesn’t get your first.

    or they’ll bludgeon you with their checkbooks and use your skin to make a $15k backpack.!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_635/alg-olsen-twins-jpg.jpg

    however, on the engagement itself, mazel tov! i think on paper the age gap is large, but 27 is an adult age and i think MK is quite a pragmatic person.

  6. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    The ring looks uncomfortable to me, as if you would be constantly bumping it on things.

    I think they are two mature adults and I’m happy for them.

  7. MrsBPitt says:

    I know this sounds terrible, but I keep picturing what a child of these two would looks like…YIKES!

  8. Patricia says:

    I’m really happy for her, I have been rooting for her happiness for a long time

  9. MollyB says:

    Never say never, Bedhead. My godmother is 47 and pregnant with her first!

  10. kay says:

    how in the name of all that is reasonable does one suppose she will make a good mother because she has been a step mother for less than two years? to preteens, no less. and because she remembers the dates of special events?
    she may or may not be a good mother, but these kind of statements are as annoying as someone with a 2 day old baby going on about how easy parenting is….
    why are people so superficial? why?
    i hope she is a good mom. i hope she loves being a mom. i hope he is a good dad. i hope they last forever…but stop with the one dimensional viewing of life. good gods.
    just a little realism invested in life would be nice…
    but i guess i am not going to find much of that within celebrity gossip. sigh.
    sorry y’all…that statement made me sad and frustrated!

  11. lylaooo says:

    they don´t look pretty smiling ..uuhh..

  12. Talie says:

    I think the ring is cool — I love their style.

    • ya says:

      I like it too – it doesn’t look like something she could wear everyday, but it’s fun and since they have a lot of $$$$ to spend, why not?

    • Miffy says:

      I hope she gets pregnant really fast, just to finally have a celebrity ‘pregnancy style’ I can take interest in. I still can’t wash away the taste of all that maternity Jenny Packham Waity forced on our eyeballs, one of the Olsen’s debuting a $45,000 diaper bag would totally do it.

      I like what she’s wearing here. She looks very cool and effortless.

  13. BendyWindy says:

    MK and Ashley have not aged well. Most late 20 somethings have grown into their features…they’ve grown in…awkwardly.

  14. DTX says:

    Correction…MK never had a Paris cast-off. She dated that Stavros guy first and brought him around her Hollywood circle (that included PH at the time) and he ran off with Paris and kind of broke her heart. It ended their friendship but MK “discovered” him first and then he became a famewhore douchebag.

    • Bridget says:

      I was going to say the same thing. I’m not an MK fan, but accusing her of taking a Paris Hilton castoff is bad indeed. Whatever happened to Stavros anyhow? He and Paris went back amd forth for a long time, to the absolute horror of his family.

  15. CynicalCeleste says:

    It’s a cocktail ring.

  16. Bwarf says:

    I love the Olsen twins but this quote can’t be true, “She remembers all the kids’ special events,” she didn’t even remember her other sister’s birthday last month lol!

    If they’re really engaged then good for them. She’s changed her mind about not getting married and having kids as she’s said in previous interviews and usually that happens when people are really happy…who changes their mind for someone they don’t see a future with?
