Congrats are in order for former “Living Single” star. The 53-year-old actress who won our hearts as Synclaire James said “I Do” to her 41-year-old boyfriend and former SWAT officer Reggie Mckiver in an intimate island wedding in the Dominican Republic recently.  Reggie and Kim told the press he owns his own health food store.

The twosome met during a natural hair expo where Reggie was assigned as her security escort. And the rest was history. Long-distance history, actually.  Until he proposed

Kim said she’s no cougar, the “energy” they shared was just right and she’s happy. People mag reports:

...he was assigned to be her security escort at a natural hair expo, and they were enjoying each other’s company, but they felt something special when Mckiver (who also owns a health food store) took her hand to read her energy and ended up holding it “a little big longer than he should have.”

Oh? Kim also spilled to PEOPLE magazine that she's no cougar though:

“[My heart] was open just enough for Reggie to come though and I’m so glad he did,” Coles tells PEOPLE. “I’m 53 and Reggie is 41 but I’m not a cougar. I can’t run that fast. I’m a meerkat or a prairie dog. It’s about the right energy. It wasn’t like I was trolling for younger men. It’s about energy. We’re ageless. Just two people on the same plane.”

Sweet.

The actress also dished to the publication about their unorthodox proposal. Now…while we’re excited these two found love in a hopeless place, we are giving Reggie the side-eye for what some may call a lackadaisical proposal. On the other hand, some may call it romantic.  Apparently, Reggie popped the question to Kim while they were dining at Olive Garden. Without a ring.

In fact, he didn't go purchase one for her one either. He found his mother’s long lost engagement ring at his sister’s house and gave it to Kim. Guess he was going for the sentimental value thing.

The lovebirds trekked the aisle on the beach surrounded by their closest friends and family. What started out as a super small private wedding, it quickly turned into a bigger deal after she announced she was tying the knot during a comedy show. She said,

“Me with my big mouth announced I was getting married! People asked where and I was like, you cant come, it’s a private wedding. We had to move the wedding from one beach to a whole other beach, but all the people from the tour showed up — 45 people in their bathing suits and towels — but they were very respectful.”

While this ceremony was a small, intimate gathering, the newlyweds plan on doing another ceremony on August 21st with celebrity wedding planner David Tutera. We assume it wil be featured on his “CELEBrations” WE tv series...all expenses paid by the network.

Kim said, “Now we’ll have bridesmaids and groomsmen. It’ll be a whole other thing. We got to have our own private thing and now we get to have the big extravaganza.”

Congrats to the couple!
