Glee Actress Engaged to Girlfriend After Romantic Disneyland Proposal
The Glee engagements keep coming, and we couldn't be happier about it! That's right: With this latest news, we've now heard about five (!) Glee stars' engagements in the past four months. Love is all you need, indeed.
Dot-Marie — who has played Coach Beiste since Season 2 — proposed to Bridgett near the Sleeping Beauty Castle as part of the theme park's annual Anaheim Gay Days event, bringing LGBT visitors and supporters to Disneyland. Dot-Marie and Bridgett have been dating since December 2010.
"It’s the happiest day of my life," Dot-Marie, 49, says about the engagement. "I never thought I’d find somebody that is so loving and kind." Awww!
Bridgett is 39 and has two children from a previous marriage. Dot-Marie posted a pic on Twitter of the two of them following the engagement on October 4, with the caption, "SO HAPPY!!"
This has been a big year for Dot-Marie, who earned her third consecutive Emmy nomination this year for playing Beiste. She has not yet appeared in Season 5 but will be in next week's Season 5, Episode 3 tribute to Cory Monteith.
