Sen. Tim Scott Excited to Announce Engagement

In a heartwarming turn of events, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, a lifelong bachelor and former presidential candidate, surprised the public by proposing to his girlfriend, Mindy Noce, on a picturesque Kiawah Island beach.

Scott, 58, shared the joyful news on Sunday through a social media post, expressing gratitude to Noce for making him "the luckiest man in the world."

The proposal took place just a day after Scott officially endorsed Donald Trump for president. In his announcement, Scott referenced Proverbs 18:22 from the Bible, stating, "Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor of the Lord." The senator's endorsement of Trump and engagement to Noce mark significant personal and political developments.

Scott introduced Noce to the public during the third GOP presidential debate in Miami, revealing their connection through Bible study.

The couple, introduced about a year ago at church, bonded over shared interests, passions and goals. Reflecting on their journey, Scott said, "I knew there was something very different about her and her faith."

Noce, a Charleston-based design and renovation consultant and mother of three, was married previously. The senator, who sought and received permission from Noce's parents before proposing, highlighted their shared faith by mentioning, "In our first conversation... we ended up deciding to do a Bible study together."

Despite initial proposal plans involving a game of pickleball being rejected, the engagement unfolded seamlessly. As Noce proudly displayed her new ring at church on Sunday, Scott expressed his excitement and gratitude for finding a soul mate who shares his values and beliefs.

"I've been very patient and prayerful, and I'm really excited and somewhat nervous, and I couldn't be more thankful for having found a soul mate and someone who shares a lot of the same interests, passions and goals that I do," Scott told the Washington Post.
