Looks like Lea Michele and Cory Monteith aren't the only Glee stars whose lives imitate art! Now following in his character Mr. Schue's footsteps, Matthew Morrison has gotten engaged! A source confirmed to Us Weekly that the Broadway-turned-TV star popped the question to his girlfriend of two years, model Renee Puente, yesterday. Exciiiiting!
What's more, the couple was honored with some VIP treatment in the wake of their big news. Sir Elton John himself and his partner, David Furnish, announced Morrison and Puente's engagement during John's White Tie and Tiara Ball to benefit his AIDS Foundation in London later in the evening, an onlooker reported to Us. Love it. Also love the engagement bling Matt put on it! Very royal, eh?
Judging from what their friends have to say about the pairing, it sounds like they're meant to be ...
Another source notes:
Matt's friends absolutely adore Renee! They have never seen Matt happier than when he is with her. She is super supportive of his career and also works hard on her own. She is such a great girl, and they are awesome together.
So sweet. The couple has been dating since late 2011, and although paparazzi often catches them out and about in L.A., they also really enjoy stepping out of the spotlight together. Matt even told Closer magazine recently:
I'm very happy. Renee's not in the industry -- I need that normality. We like to stay home and cook, we're not that Hollywood.
That in itself says these two definitely have what it takes to make it last. Congrats to the happy couple!
What well wishes would you send Matt and Renee?
