NEW YORK (CNN/Money) -- He's got the money, new fame from his hit reality TV show, and now Donald Trump is getting a wife.

After two marriages ended in high-profile divorces, the billionaire star of high rating U.S. TV show, NBC's "The Apprentice," proposed to his model girlfriend Melania Knauss, CNNfn confirmed Thursday.

The New York Post reported that Trump gave a blinding diamond engagement ring to the 33-year-old Slovenian native at a party Monday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but it went unnoticed by other guests.

Trump, with a net worth of $2.5 billion and ranked as the world's 205th richest person by Forbes, would likely insist on a prenuptial with his model fiance, the paper added.

"The Donald," as he's called by tabloids, married his first wife Ivana in 1977. The marriage ended in a very public divorce after nearly 15 years. The divorce of his second wife, Marla Maples, also grabbed a lot of media attention.

The 57-year-old Trump shares three children with Ivana Marie Zelnickova and one daughter with Marla Maples.

The Post said no date has yet been set for the wedding. Riding the success of "Apprentice," Trump will also host a national radio show, Clear Channel, the broadcasting company that will air the show, said Wednesday.

The weekday show, called "Trumped," will span business and non-business topics, including the real estate mogul's thoughts on the media and entertainment world as well as politics.

Clear Channel said it expects to launch the radio show June 15, while NBC told CNN/Money that the second season of "The Apprentice" will begin sometime in the fall.
