The engagement comes 11 years after Spitzer was forced to resign as governor amid accusations that he had spent about $ 80,000 on prostitutes.

The politician has since endured a number of personal scandals. He divorced his 26-year-old wife, Silda Wall, in 2014 after his affair with Democratic political adviser Lis Smith was unveiled.

His relationship with Smith ended in 2016 when he accused a Russian escort with whom he had a two-year relationship of extorting him.

Spitzer and Girand began publicly dating in September 2017.

Early in their relationship, a source told page six that the couple made a great match because they & # 39; both love real estate and they both love New York & # 39 ;.

The future multi-millionaire groom, the son of real estate magnate Bernard Spitzer, made a name for himself as a lawyer focusing on corrupt financiers and was given the nickname & # 39; Sheriff of Wall Street & # 39 ;.

Spitzer & # 39; s promising political career got out of hand when he was forced to resign as governor in 2008 after being reported to have had at least seven meetings with high-end prostitutes and $ 10,000 over a six-month period transferred to an escort service.

His then wife Wall assisted him until 2013, when his affair with Smith, then spokeswoman for Bill de Blasio, was made public.

Spitzer and Wall, who have three daughters together, completed their divorce the following year.

After the divorce, Spitzer moved in with Smith, who is now a senior advisor to South Bend, Mayor Pete Buttigieg's presidential campaign.

Smith ended the relationship in 2016 when Spitzer told her that he was extorted by the former Russian escort Svetlana Travis Zakharova.

Spitzer and Zakharova reportedly had a two-year affair while Spitzer went out with Smith, & # 39; the love of his life & # 39 ;.

The affair came to light when Zakharova called 911 from Spitzer & # 39; s $ 1,000-a-night suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York and claimed that she had cut her wrists after the politician threw her down.

The escort claimed that Spitzer threatened to kill her during a telephone call in February 2016 and released a recording in which a man heard her say: & You are going to die a slow and painful death, you f ****** b * *** & # 39 ;.

Spitzer filed a lawsuit against Zakharova, claiming that she had blackmailed him by threatening details about their & # 39; trysts & # 39; release unless he paid her.

He claimed that Zakharova's allegations were revenge because he broke ties with her.

The civil proceeding reached a settlement, but the New York police later arrested Zakharova and accused her of extorting $ 400,000 from Spitzer.

In October 2017, Zakharova accepted a plea in which she did not have to spend time extorting Spitzer, but it was forbidden to speak publicly about it.

Girand founded Sebastian Capital in 2001 and the company now leases and manages around 3.5 million square feet of real estate in the New York region.

She was born in New York, but grew up in Colombia and Spain and speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.

The expectant bride is also divorced earlier and has two children.
