Timing is everything — even when it comes to love. Which is why even though we're thrilled that Lauren Conrad is engaged to William Tell, we couldn't help but notice that their happy announcement came right on the heels of her ex-boyfriend's wedding.

Don't get us wrong. We're happy for everyone. We just think it seems a little suspicious convenient that L.C. posted the picture of her stunning sparkler the day after Jason Wahler tied the knot with Ashley Slack.

As details started to surface of Wahler's wedding — which took place at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu and included nearly 200 guests — Conrad broke her big news on her personal blog. "I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend," she wrote. (In other words, she got engaged at nearly the exact time her bad-boy ex was saying "I do.")

While it's completely possible that the former reality star/ best-selling author/ fashion designer didn't give Wahler's nuptials a single thought; it's also possible that her fiancé did. Rumors have been buzzing that William was ready to pop the question for months now, yet he waited until this particular weekend to do the deed. Then again, maybe Lauren's ex was the last thing on his mind.

Conrad and Wahler ended their reality television romance in 2006 shortly after L.C. famously turned down the opportunity to work for Teen Vogue in Paris in order to spend her summer with her man.

Regardless of the timing, one thing is clear: The former "Hills" cast is growing up. Lauren's former co-star Kristin Cavallari and her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler, have a 14-month-old son, but recently announced they're already trying for baby no. 2. "We're working on it," she admitted. "We're doing all the necessary things to get pregnant."

Now that L.C. is headed for the altar, maybe a whole new brood of reality stars isn't far behind. "Laguna Junior," anyone?
