Rider Strong, famous for his role as Shawn on Boy Meets World, recently became engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Alexandra Barreto. The 33-year-old actor-turned-director popped the question on Wednesday (December 26) with “a handmade ring he created himself,” reports E! News.
The two lovebirds met in 2006 while appearing on the short-lived WB sitcom Pepper Dennis, and later worked together on a campaign video for President Obama.
Rider recently spoke up about the upcoming Disney channel spin-off Girl Meets World, which he will not be a part of but will feature his former co-stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel. “At this point, I have no official involvement,” Rider said. “There might be a change to see some of the BMW cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story.”
