Disney Star Dove Cameron Was Surprised by Ryan McCartan’s Proposal
The Liv and Maddie star was caught off guard.
Ryan threw fans of the show into a shipper tizzy when he made the announcement via Instagram last week, posting a sweet pic of the two.
Speaking with People.com at the 23rd annual Race to Erase MS gala, Cameron said, “We were both very clear with each other that it was like, ‘I know you’re my person. You know you’re my person. There’s nobody else. But I knew he wanted to get married young – he had told me that. He was like, ‘That’s what I want as my life plan.'”
The actual proposal, however, “was very spur-of-the-moment. It was perfect. It was more romantic and bohemian than traditional,” gushed Cameron.
The actress remembered the first time she and McCartan, who met on the Liv and Maddie set in 2013 and began dating shortly after, knew marriage was in the cards.
“We had this stupid moment, a stupid cheesy moment in my dressing room where he looked at me and it was all like dramatic – it was so dramatic! He stared at me, and I was like, ‘What?’ And he was like, ‘Oh I don’t know. I can see myself … nothing.’ And I was like, ‘I can see myself, too.’ And literally from then on, we’re like, ‘Are we going to get married? Alright, cool.’ And it’s been like three years, and now we’re engaged.” Aww, big heart emoji right here.
Cameron and McCartan are also in a band called The Girl and the Dreamcatcher, so maybe they’ll perform at their wedding, which, at this point, Cameron is in no hurry to organize. “It’ll be a while because we have projects lined up.I don’t want to hate the process. I want to take my time.”
