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.
In the newest announcement, Glee actress Dot-Marie Jones (Beiste) got engaged to girlfriend Bridgett Casteen at Disneyland on October 4, according to The Advocate.
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.
This is the second Glee engagement of the week, following Naya Rivera (Santana) and Big Sean confirming their engagement on October 3 after six months of dating. And earlier this summer, we learned that Matthew Morrison (Schue) is engaged to Renee Puente, and that Melissa Benoist (Marley) and Blake Jenner (Ryder) are engaged to each other. Whew.
Congrats to Dot-Marie and Bridgett! We're wishing you two all the best. Now we're just hoping maybe Beiste can start a solid relationship this season. Nothing wrong with art imitating life, right?
