Darren Criss Engaged to Mia Swier After Over 7 Years of Dating
This was apparently the weekend for engagement announcements! Not only did Ed Sheeran announce he popped the question to Cherry Seaborn just before New Year’s, but Darren Criss also got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Mia Swier.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story wrote on Twitter on Friday, “Mia and I have had seven and a half years of fun, wacky, wonderful, CRAZY adventures together. And I’m happy to announce that we’re kicking those adventures up a notch. We’re goin for it. To boldly go where neither of us have gone before. Engage.” He also included Emojis of rocket ship and an engagement ring.

Darren and Mia met back in 2010 while they were both working on Glee as an actor and producer, respectively. The pair has kept their relationship very private over the past several years, only starting to appear together on red carpets, at event, etc., very recently. But despite the fact that they don’t like to put their romance on display, the two are still very supportive of each other no matter what. In fact, it was the 32-year-old who encouraged the 30-year-old to post an NSFW selfie on Twitter last May.

“It actually took many many days to figure out if I was going to do it or not,” he told Us Weekly at the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards in Toronto, Canada, last June. “I asked a couple of my friends, I asked my girlfriend and they all agreed I should do it.”
Now that’s the kind of support you need in your life!
