After five years together, The Insider host Pat O'Brien and his girlfriend Betsy Stephens plan to marry.

"It's probably going to be next fall," O'Brien, with Stephens at his side, told PEOPLE at A-Rod's All-Star party at New York City's 40/40 Monday. "We're in love and in no big hurry. We don't know if it will take place – in Jamaica, New York, or Nantucket."

"I think we're going to sneak off and do something really romantic," said Stephens, who recalled first meeting O'Brien at Los Angeles's Staples Center. "It was a basketball event."

Their first date was the Emmy Awards ceremony, and she especially recalls how good he looked in his tuxedo afterwards.

"He's a smart, interesting man, poetic," said Stephens, who has two young daughters and whose company, B ... for Betsy, specializes in handmade accessories and apparel. "He's wonderful."

O'Brien, 60, has also been through a lot, including two stints in rehab. Overcoming the ordeals, O'Brien and Stephens claim that their relationship remains strong.
