When you have 1.7 million Instagram followers, your engagement ring selfie is bound to get tons of attention! Youtube and social media star Sam Pottorff just got engaged to his girlfriend, actress Rosa van Iterson, and their totally adorbs on-screen announcements — including an aptly-named "I GOT ENGAGED!!!" Youtube video — are taking the Internet by storm. Seriously, these two cuties just earned all the heart eyes emojis.
Pottorff, 20, and 24-year-old van Iterson are two social media darlings who have earned their fame through Pottorff's über-popular Youtube channel and the bride-to-be's film credits. Think they have enough room for their millions of social media followers at the wedding?
Those devoted fans were clued into the engagement just two days ago when Pottorff posted a video (see below) to his Youtube channel on September 5th, announcing his to-be-wedded status. "If you guys notice by the name of this video, yes, it's true," Pottorff began before his pulling his now-fiancé on camera. "Recently, we got engaged," the star shared, dissolving into a totally adorable fit of giggles with his bride-to-be. Later, van Iterson even flashed her sweet and simple engagement ring — a thin, dainty gold band that Pottorff snagged on Etsy of all places! "Just like Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis!" Pottorff proudly added.
Although the pair couldn't be happier to tie the knot, they did address that not everyone in their lives are as thrilled as they are, as some are insinuating that the couple is too young and haven't been dating long enough (they just celebrated their six month anniversary) to make their love official. But the duo is staying strong with their decision, planning for a wedding in Amsterdam (van Iterson's home country) sometime in 2017.
"I had to get her before someone else could, because she is my better half," Pottorff captioned their engagement snapshot on Instagram. "She's made me a better person and helped me through things I didn't even know I had to go through. And everyday I'm without her I feel so lost, she's to good to be true and I would never be able to find anyone better. She's the most amazing person I've ever met and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with her."
Meanwhile, we can't wait for their wedding day! Promise to livestream those "I do's," okay Pottorff?
