Aidy Bryant shares hilarious proposal story
"Saturday Night Live" star Aidy Bryant is engaged — via the most awkward and adorable proposal ever. On "Late Night With Seth Meyers" this week, Aidy explained that her boyfriend of nine years, Connor O'Malley, surprised her with the ring when she was coming home from a rehearsal . "I had my purse and our mail and all these boxes, and I walked to our door and our dog had a bow tie on," she recalled (via Us Weekly). "I was like, 'My dog doesn't wear a bow tie! Where is he going tonight?' Basically, the second I shut the door, a man — who I discovered was Conner — frantically came around the corner and was just like, 'Will you marry me?!' No box. No 'I love you.' Just a man in full terror standing very far from a dog in a bow tie, just holding a loose ring going, 'Will you marry me?!' I was like, 'What?!' I truly couldn't comprehend what was happening, and I kept saying, 'Is this a joke? Are you doing a joke?' And then I said, 'Of course I'll marry you. I love you.' And it was really nice." As she later explained, the oddball approach wasn't completely out of the blue. "He was like, 'Well, you always said that you wanted it to happen in our house if it ever happened,'" Aidy said. "I was like, 'That's true; I wanted it to be private.' He was like, 'But I also knew you probably wanted to be wearing a bra and have makeup on, so I knew I had to do it after you just got home from work — otherwise it would never be another moment.'" Congrats!
