While at the Variety Power of Youth event in Universal City, CA on Saturday (July 27), Posey confirmed to Us Weekly that he and his makeup artist girlfriend of 10 years are planning to wed. “I’ve been wanting to ask her to marry me for years now and I finally did it,” the MTV actor said. “It’s everything I’ve wanted to do. I finally feel like myself.”
Posey popped the question during a recent 12-day trip to Hawaii, he tells the magazine. “I didn’t know if I was going to do it — I didn’t have a plan or anything.” On the first night, as the pair were talking before dinner, he decided to take the diamond sparkler out of a drawer. “I was so damn nervous,” he admits. “I just asked her and it was the coolest thing in the world. Her reaction was the sweetest — I can’t even explain it!”
The proposal is something Posey’s had some time to consider. “I’ve known her since I was 11 and been in love with her since I was 12,” he says of Gorlick. “I’m so inspired by her. I think she’s the coolest, most raddest person ever. She’s so nice and so cute.”
Congrats to the happy couple.
