Aww! Glee Star Set to Marry Childhood Friend After Adorable Proposal
Becca Tobin‘s not the only Glee alum with a recent proposal story to tell — Lauren Potter‘s got one of her own as well!
The 26-year-old blonde actress, who portrayed Becky Jackson, Sue Sylvester’s student sidekick, throughout the duration of the Fox dramedy, accepted a promise ring from her childhood friend-turned-boyfriend, 26-year-old Timothy Spear, this past weekend over a romantic picnic.
“He picked out the ring, made payments on it, and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready,” revealed Lauren’s mother, Robin Sinkhorn. “Then they watched the sunset together.”
The two became friends before they could even speak, as, according to People, their families participated in the same infant stimulation classes at the Children’s Center in Riverside after Lauren and Timothy were born with Down Syndrome.
Lauren’s mama continued, “We’ve kept in touch over the years, but it wasn’t until the kids were reunited while they were both living in Laguna Beach. When Lauren ended a relationship, Timothy immediately asked her out and they have been together since.” Aww!
