Hope Hicks is thinking outside the witness box.

Donald Trump’s former top aide is engaged to her longtime love, Goldman Sachs boss Jim Donovan, Page Six can confirm.

Sources tell us that the couple, who began seeing each other in the summer of 2019, got engaged months ago while on a hike in Italy.

Donovan is vice chairman of global client coverage at Goldman Sachs.

Hicks, 35, and Donovan, 58, celebrated their impending union with friends and family at Coco’s at Colette — the private members club inside the iconic GM building on Fifth Avenue.

Pals later hosted a dinner for the happy couple at Casa Cruz, another swanky eatery and club, sources said.

Donovan — vice chairman of Goldman Sachs — has four children with his ex-wife.

It will be the first marriage for Hicks.

Donovan is also an instructor at the University of Virginia, where for over 15 years he has taught classes on corporate strategy and leadership — and his online speeches have racked up more than 6 million views.

His bio says he joined Goldman in 1993, made partner in 2000 and served on the board of the Goldman Sachs Philanthropy Fund from 2002 to 2006. He has degrees from MIT and Harvard Law School.

Like his fiancée, he also has close connections with the Trump administration.

He served as a member of the former president’s Intelligence Advisory Board.

Meanwhile, since leaving the White House, Hicks has been building her own corporate consulting firm, splitting her time with clients between New York and Washington, DC.

Trump’s onetime press secretary and White House communications director faced a long day on the witness stand yesterday as she gave testimony in Trump’s hush-money trial.

And despite reports that Hicks and Donovan will wed this summer, we’re told the couple has no plans to tie the knot just yet — as they have their hands full with work, family and courtroom cameos.
