Actress Aidy Bryant Thought Her Proposal was a Joke


Actress/comedienne Aidy Bryant is engaged to marry comedy writer Conner O’Malley.

The Saturday Night Live (SNL) regular, who also had a recurring role on TV series Girls, revealed the happy news during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, where Conner used to work as a writer, on Thursday night (27Apr17).

Aidy, 29, told host Seth that Conner surprised her by popping the question moments after she arrived back at their New York home after working on SNL and she initially thought it was a joke.

“Basically, the second I shut the door, a man – who I discovered was Conner – frantically came around the corner and was just like, ‘Willyoumarryme?!’ No box. No ‘I love you,'” she recalled. “Just a man in full terror standing very far from a dog in a bow tie, just holding a loose ring going, ‘Willyoumarryme?!’

“I was like, ‘What?!’ I truly couldn’t comprehend what was happening, and I kept saying, ‘Is this a joke? Are you doing a joke?’ And then I said, ‘Of course I’ll marry you. I love you.’ And it was really nice.”

Once she had accepted his proposal, she asked Conner why he had picked that way to pop the question and he explained he knew she wanted it to be a private affair and she probably wanted to be looking good at that moment.

“He was like, ‘But I also knew you probably wanted to be wearing a bra and have make-up on, so I knew I had to do it after you just got home from work,” she smiled.
