“@brandontour made up a song for when I put my bonnet on at night. The second I look a bit stressed and overwhelmed, he jumps into action to take over what he can for me. Every moment with him is a joy. He is the partner I thought I was too independent to need.”
The ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ star then wrote she has learned so much about her own personality through her fiance and feels thankful to learn more about the entire world with her “cats’ daddy.”
Also, Frankel shared a video that includes the moments he is popping the question. He captioned the video by writing that he asked his best friend to marry him, and she said yes.
“So excited to spend the rest of my life with the most amazing, hilarious, beautiful, and inspiring woman I’ve ever known. I couldn’t imagine a life without you. We make the best team, and we make everything fun and memorable. I liked it, so I put a 💍 on it. Love you to the moon and back @gabby3shabby.”
The only thing known about the couple, who prefer a low-key relationship, is that they started dating in 2019.
