Violet is the first child for the former model and Vogue editor and Mortimer, who began dating in 2014 and were engaged in 2017. Simmons also has two sons named Dylan, 12, and Elliott, 13, from a previous marriage.

The bride-to-be shared her engagement news on Instagram in August, posting a photo of a necklace from Davis with a nameplate bearing the words “Tabitha” and “Topper.” In the caption, she thanked designer Tory Burch for hosting a celebration in the couple’s honor at her Southampton, New York, home.

“Thank you @toryburch for opening up your beautiful home and to all the family and friends that came out to help celebrate our special night 💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕,” she wrote on the post.

This will be the second marriage for both Simmons and Mortimer. The former was previously married to British photographer Craig McDean.

Financier Mortimer married his high-school sweetheart — Real Housewives of New York City star Tinsley Mortimer — in 2002. The couple split in 2009.
