Selena Gomez‘s former costar/off-screen fling David Henrie is engaged — and boy, does he have an elaborate story for how he popped the question (FOUR months ago!) to his love, former Miss Delaware and teacher Maria Cahill!
Essentially, David planned a day to Catalina Island that ended with him popping the question in a local church… and then the couple’s ENTIRE family and close friends were waiting nearby to celebrate! So amazing!
Spilling the deets to Blog De Los Angeles, the 27-year-old dished:
“It was a BIG thing. I wanted to do something really special, something that would make everything pale in comparison to our entire relationship so far. Something we could look back on and that we both think, ├óΓé¼╦£WOW, that was amazing, right?'”
The Wizards of Waverly Place alum added:
“I wanted it to be a big surprise, something she would never see coming├óΓé¼┬ª So here were the hurdles I had to face: it involved a private helicopter, going off to an island, bringing her to a very special church├óΓé¼┬ª It also involved getting her whole family from Delaware flown out, and most important: it all needed to be a complete surprise.”
BIG NEWS I AM HONORED TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU: I’m officially engaged to my best friend :). Link in bio for the story. I always debated keeping my personal life private or public, but you guys have meant so much to me over the years, I just have to share my JOY 🙂 #marriage is beautiful. I can not wait.A photo posted by David Henrie (@davidhenrie) on Jan 27, 2017 at 2:45pm PST
