'Bridesmaids' Actor Chris O'Dowd Is Engaged
Tis the season for engagements!
"Bridesmaids" actor Chris O'Dowd, who wooed Kristen Wiig's character as the lovable Irish cop Nathan Rhodes in the 2011 flick, will soon tie the knot with his girlfriend, British TV personality Dawn Porter.
Proposing the day after Christmas during the couple's vacation in Guernsey, an island in the English Channel, O'Dowd, 32, took to Twitter to confirm the happy news Thursday.
"I'm so bored of all this happiness and sex. I'm getting married," he wrote. Added his 32-year-old fiancee, via Twitter: "I guess he liked it, coz he put a ring on it. #engaged."
That ring, Porter tells the local Guernsey Press, is not the traditional engagement diamond, but an emerald.
"The ring is gorgeous -- an emerald, as he is Irish, and green to replace a green ring of my mum's that I have worn on that hand since I was 16," the bride-to-be told the paper.
According to Porter, the couple is considering a summer 2012 wedding.
