Aw!! We're so happy for Lauren Potter and her longtime love Timothy Spear!
According to People Magazine, Lauren and her childhood friend Timothy took the next step in their relationship this past Sunday when the actress accepted a promise ring to marry. The pair have been close ever since they first met as INFANTS at a center for children born with Down syndrome.

While the Glee star has yet to speak out on the amazing news herself, her mom Robin Sinkhorn took to the mag to gush over the romantic evening. Let's just say both families could not be more thrilled!
Speaking on the gorgeous moment, Robin revealed:
"He picked out the ring, made payments on it, and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready. Then they watched the sunset together."
So sweet. It sounds like such a perfect moment!
Ms. Sinkhorn also took a moment to marvel at the fated nature of the pair's relationship, recalling:
"We've kept in touch over the years, but it wasn't until the kids were reunited while they were both living in Laguna Beach. When Lauren ended a relationship, Timothy immediately asked her out and they have been together since."
Well, some things are just meant to be!
As for Lauren's costars, they've yet to publicly speak out on the news but we don't doubt they congratulated her privately. We bet Ms. Potter's former "cheerleading coach" Jane Lynch is just ecstatic over the romantic development!
Congrats, Lauren and Timothy!
