Dave Franco and Alison Brie Are (Finally!) Married
The two made it official after six years of dating!
It's official: Dave Franco and Alison Brie are married! While no details have been released on the where and when of the ceremony, reps for the actors confirmed the exciting news to People. Hey, there's nothing wrong with a super-secret celebrity wedding!
In January, Dave's brother James Franco appeared on The Late Show and told Stephen Colbert that his brother and Alison would be marrying "early" this year. While promoting their new movie The Little Hours at Sundance this January, the couple was asked if they had plans to tie the knot anytime soon. "I don't know why he said that," Alison told E! News. "I don't know what he was talking about." Dave also added, "He doesn't know what he's talking about. Who knows when it's going to be? Hopefully soon. Hopefully early this year, but again we're very lax about the whole planning." Seems to us they were hiding what was already planned! Maybe they eloped, just like Dave had joked with reporters last year.
The newlyweds first met in 2011 at Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and had been dating ever since. Dave and Alison announced their engagement in August of 2015, when the bride-to-be began flashing a seriously unique engagement ring. Dave proposed to the former Mad Men actress with a one-of-a-kind rose gold ring set with a rose-cut diamond and a diamond pave. "I'm not very bridal, instinctually," she told Yahoo Style. "Marriage never really interested me, I guess because I was very focused on my work…I bought a dress on Net-a-Porter, and I'm like 'Maybe I'll wear that.'" As for why she said yes to Dave's proposal, she says, "I just met the person that I was like, 'Well, I'm in really in love with you and would like to grow old with you.' I actually think it's much more romantic when two people are like, 'Oh, I could go either way on marriage, but I want to marry you.'" We're glad they did-congrats to the newlyweds!
