Mama Mia — Ivan Ciment is Engaged!

Last night, from centerstage at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theater, home of the show “Mama Mia,” Karen Heilig accepted Ivan Ciment’s proposal of marriage. Playing on the show’s signature song “Dancing Queen,” Ciment asked Heilig to be his “Real Life Queen.” Heilig, thinking she was being taken out to celebrate her birthday, was utterly floored.

Heilig, of Sydney Australia, is chief counsel and assistant executive vice president of the Conference on Material Claims against Germany, an NGO. Ciment, 37, of Miami Beach, is CFO and legal counsel for Morningside Evaluations and Consulting, a legal consulting company specializing in immigration matters.

Heilig and Ciment currently live 2 blocks apart on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and met last summer via JDate, an internet dating service. Ciment’s parents have withdrawn the $25,000 bounty they had offered to anyone finding a suitable match. “The Americans can’t locate Osama for $25 million and to think I found Karen for $19.95 on JDate — wow!”, said Ciment.

The wedding will take place in Miami Beach on a Sunday in early November. Further details will follow soon.
