Congratulations are in order for Riverdale star Vanessa Morgan and Chicago White Sox player Michael Kopech!
The pair took to their social media late on Wednesday, July 3 to reveal that they are engaged. Kopech shared an adorable video of the engagement on his Instagram page showing him proposing in front of a waterfall in Mooney Falls, Arizona. “So I’ll start with the obvious: I love you. I love you intensely, passionately, & also at times, recklessly,” he began his post.
He continued, “I make decisions on the spur of the moment (i mean look at how our relationship has gone up to this point). I’m a very non traditional type of person and I know I’ve found my match in you when it comes to that especially.”
“Our relationship probably doesn’t make sense to many people for a sh*t ton of reasons, but we’re not doing it for them. We know this is forever. Why would we wait? lol. You literally stayed by my side when I felt I had lost my mind. You stayed by my side for these seemingly random changes of my life. You stayed when often times I didn’t deserve it. You’ve loved me for ME from day one. Completely unselfishly. You’re undeniably the spark that reignited my fire. You’re deserving of much more than just this moment but this one just felt particularly magical. I’m incredibly humbled by the love that you give and I only hope I can portray a fraction of the love and light that you carry with you. I’ll never have enough words to tell you how much I love you, but I promise to always show you. But for now, I’ll finish this how I started: I love you. SO MUCH. @vanessamorgan.”
Meanwhile Morgan shared an image from the moment with the caption, “My Forever.”
The newly engaged couple have reportedly been dating for just over a year following Kopech’s split from reality star Brielle Biermann in March 2018 after two years of dating.
