How Old Was Haley Lu Richardson When She Started Dating Brett Dier?

The fact that actress Haley Lu Richardson asked Brett Dier, who plays Michael on the TV show Jane the Virgin, to marry her is proof enough.

The actress recently told Cosmo how she asked her boyfriend to marry her in a sweet and unexpected way. (And Richardson gets props for being open to the growing trend of women asking men out.)

“I didn’t prepare at all,” Richardson told Cosmopolitan. “I had no idea when I woke up that morning that I was going to ask someone to marry me that day. I was totally in the moment and this gut feeling came up and coerced me to ask him to marry me and I did.”

Richardson popped the question in a mall food court and it seems that this gut feeling came up. “And he said yes,” Richardson continued. “I feel like the trick to that was just not thinking about it at all before it happened. I just kind of did it.”

Instagram says that the two of them met in New Orleans more than five years ago. And it seems like the fact that her man was eating pizza was a big reason why she did what she did. “We were at this outdoor strip mall eating pizza when it happened,” she said.

“When we were crying and having this really amazing moment that I’ll never forget, crying and holding each other and saying oh my gosh, we’re going to get married, we’re going to be together forever, we were like, we’re gonna have to do something about it because we didn’t have any rings. So we went over to this bush and got these twigs and each knelt down one at a time and tied these twigs around our ring fingers. We have them saved in a little baggie.”

She continued, “My engagement ring now, it’s custom made, it’s a really simple ring but it’s engraved like a twig.” Richardson told Entertainment Tonight Canada in March 2018 that she was getting married. She also talked about why she still calls Dier just her boyfriend.

“He doesn’t like the word fiancé because he thinks it sounds pretentious, so we’re still just boyfriend and girlfriend, I guess just engaged ones.”

A few months later, Dier talked to ET Canada about his engagement ring and the plans for their wedding. He showed off his new jewelry and said that the three-colored band is made of a meteor, a dinosaur bone and gold, with whiskey barrel wood on the inside. He also said that they want to get married in Sedona, Arizona, because “it looks like Mars and we both think we are from outer space.”

Even though they seemed to have traveled light years to find each other, Dier knew from the start that Richardson was the one. “The second, well not the second, maybe like 12 seconds in, I knew she was the one because I’ve never met anyone like her before,” he said.

“She’s so free and such a beautiful person and I just couldn’t imagine any other person made for me—like she’s just the perfect person. She makes me a better person, she’s always supportive and it’s just like this endless love we have for each other. I know that sounds so lame but it’s true.”
