Secret Wedding! Reality Star Dina Manzo Has Been Married for Years

“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum Dina Manzo, 47, has been hiding a big secret!

On Monday, Manzo revealed that she has been married to her beau Dave Cantin for nearly two years.

Posting a pic on Instagram of herself cuddling Dave, Dina captioned it, “The bride wore a dress from her closet, an orange blossom in her hair and carried a Calla Lily from her Malibu Garden.”

The pair married on June 28, 2017. She added, “In front of the gorgeous Pacific, surrounded by nature and puppies, they promised to be there in good times and bad. ❤️A simple, meaningful wedding on a day chosen by the stars.💫 ... and so it is. #thirdtimesacharm.”

Her hashtag referenced her previous marriages to George Hadjiapostoli and Tommy Manzo.

Dave responded to the post, writing, “I love you baby.”

A month before they got married, Dina gushed about Dave on Instagram, writing, “I can lean on him for just about anything. Like an expired passport the day before travel. ooops! Thank you @davecantin for being the man that you are and for loving everyone in your life so deeply. I'm a very lucky girl."

After her big reveal, Dina tweeted, “So now that my marriage is confirmed. Who’s gonna help me change my last name on here without losing my verification?”

Last year, Dina somewhat hinted that they were married. She told Jeff Lewis on his SiriusXM show, “Our life is a honeymoon. We don’t do a lot of traveling, but we are definitely in the honeymoon phase.”

When Jeff brought some attention to Dina and David’s “really nice rings,” she said, “We are committed.”

She also noted that the public won’t find out about their small wedding until after it had happened.

Manzo and Cantin have been together since 2015 and now live in California.

Her wedding announcement comes a week after an arrest was made in their 2017 home-invasion case. At the time, the couple was allegedly attacked by two men who stole jewelry and cash from their New Jersey home. In a recent statement, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni revealed that James Mainello had been taken into custody for his alleged involvement in the home invasion. Gramiccioni said, “James Mainello, 51, of Bayonne, is charged with first degree Robbery; second degree Robbery; second degree Burglary; second degree Aggravated Assault; two counts of third degree Aggravated Assault; third degree Theft: third degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose; fourth degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon; and third degree Criminal Restraint.”

Mainello is due to appear in court this week. Gramiccioni added, “A detention hearing is also expected to be scheduled following his first appearance to determine whether Mainello will be released or detained pending trial.”
