After six years of dating, Joshua Kushner has sealed the deal with supermodel Karlie Kloss.

Kushner, 33, the brother of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, proposed to Kloss a few weeks ago, People reported. A Jewish wedding seems to be in store for the couple, since Kloss, 25, converted to Judaism last month, according to People.

Kloss isn’t the first woman to embrace Judaism in order to marry a Kushner. Jared Kushner’s wife — the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump — also converted before the couple tied the knot in 2009. She studied with the Orthodox rabbi who headed Manhattan’s Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, Haskel Lookstein.

Kloss raved about her husband-to-be on Instagram, writing “Josh, you’re my best friend and my soulmate.”

Kloss openly supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, and also went to the Women’s March after Trump’s inauguration. So did her fiancé. We hope that the Kushner family has a no-politics rule at the Shabbat table.
