Sara Ramirez is engaged!Grey's Anatomy star Sara Ramirez is engaged! The 35-year-old actress said "yes" to longtime boyfriend Ryan Debolt when he popped the question in Paris on June 17. Not sure anyone would turn down a proposal in Paris, so Ryan really got it right. No word yet on when the wedding will be, but I'll let you know once I get my invitation.
Ramirez, who plays Dr. Callie Torres on the hit ABC drama, might have gotten wedding fever from her character. She and fellow doctor, Arizona Robbins, tied the knot on the show about a month ago in a much talked about lesbian ceremony. Could it be that Ramirez liked the dress and the attention so much that she wanted a real wedding of her own?
I mean, if I played dress-up in a wedding gown, faked a wedding, faked the family drama, and faked a reception, you better believe I'd be anxious for the real thing. Why? Because faking all the stuff would give her an upper hand in terms of experience and knowledge on how to handle the big day and she's gotta strike while it's all still fresh in her mind.
The one thing I hope Ramirez forgets is her Grey's Anatomy wedding dress. The bleach white Amsale gown with haphazard lace sleeves was not my favorite. If Sara wants to wear a dress from her TV wedding for her real one, I hope she borrows Arizona's feminine ivory frock with embellished square details. Now that was gorgeous. Callie's? Not so much.
I'm sure of one thing though, Ramirez will look gorgeous. I've always thought she was the most attractive woman on the show and I'll be excited to see pics from her real-life wedding. Oh! Maybe she'll sing at the reception. She's got a Tony after all for her role in Broadway's Spamalot. Girl's got mad chops.
Congrats to the happy couple!
Do you think the timing of Ramirez's engagement had anything to do with Callie's wedding?
