Vanessa Morgan and Michael Kopech are engaged!
On Wednesday, the Riverdale actress — who plays “Toni Topaz” on the CW series — announced the exciting news on Instagram.
While posting a pic of the professional baseball player getting down on one knee in front of Mooney Falls near the Grand Canyon in Arizona, the thespian wrote:
“My Forever 😭💍♥️”
Not to be outdone, the athlete posted a video of him popping the question, with the caption:
“So I’ll start with the obvious: I love you. I love you intensely, passionately, & also at times, recklessly. I make decisions on the spur of the moment (i mean look at how our relationship has gone up to this point). I’m a very non traditional type of person and I know I’ve found my match in you when it comes to that especially. Our relationship probably doesn’t make sense to many people for a s**t ton of reasons, but we’re not doing it for them. We know this is forever. Why would we wait? lol. You literally stayed by my side when I felt I had lost my mind. You stayed by my side for these seemingly random changes of my life. You stayed when often times I didn’t deserve it. You’ve loved me for ME from day one. Completely unselfishly. You’re undeniably the spark that reignited my fire. You’re deserving of much more than just this moment but this one just felt particularly magical. I’m incredibly humbled by the love that you give and I only hope I can portray a fraction of the love and light that you carry with you. I’ll never have enough words to tell you how much I love you, but I promise to always show you.
But for now, I’ll finish this how I started: I love you. SO MUCH. @vanessamorgan”
The pitcher was previously in a relationship with Brielle Biermann until March 2018.
In a February interview with TooFab, the Don’t Be Tardy star opened up about why their relationship didn’t work out.
According to Kim Zolciak-Biermann‘s daughter, the 23-year-old apparently wanted to take a “break,” and expected she would wait for him. She revealed:
“It was more of him wanting to take a break, and he wanted me to wait on him… And I was like, ‘I’m not gonna wait on you, dude. You clearly wanna go f**k around. You think I’m stupid? I’m not stupid. I’m not gonna be waiting for you to return. I have a life, too.’ He was like, ‘In a year, we can date.’ I was like, ‘Are you insane? No.’”
Congrats Michael and Vanessa!
