Vicki Gunvalson and her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, appear to be taking their relationship to the next level. Following months of dating, the Real Housewives of Orange County star took to Instagram, where she revealed that she and her family "love" Lodge.

"So proud of[Steve Lodge].This is what family looks like supporting his Anaheim City Council's campaign," she captioned a family photo. "Steve's mom, his daughter, my daughter and ME. We love you Steve and are so proud of you."

Vicki Gunvalson began dating Steve Lodge earlier this year

After ending her relationship with Brooks Ayers last August, Vicki Gunvalson gave Lodge, who was unaware of her reality persona, a chance and months later, they've enjoyed quite a lot of time together -- including a recent trip to Alaska.

Lodge has also become well liked by Gunvalson's family, which is a major bonus, especially after what she went through with her ex-boyfriend, Ayers.

Earlier this summer, after her boyfriend's identity was revealed, Gunvalson opened up about a possible future with Lodge and confirmed that her daughter, Briana Culberson, was in full support of their relationship. Gunvalson even discussed the possibility of a future marriage, although she noted that she would have to be sure that she found the right guy.

"I definitely would get married again. I like being married. I like being monogamous," VickiGunvalsontoldThe Daily Dish. "I'm 54. If I lived as long as my mother at 83, I could have 29, 30 years with somebody. That's pretty cool, right?"

Vicki Gunvalson's first marriage was seen on 'RHOC'

During the early seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gunvalson was married to Donn Gunvalson and after going through a rough patch, they renewed their vows with a beach ceremony that was filmed.

However, after enjoying a rekindled romance briefly, they ultimately called it quits in 2010.
