Romantic proposals, engagement rings, and all that jazz, of course! This week kicked off with three rounds of delightful news from three celebrities we'll probably never put in the same sentence again.
For starters, Carson Daly, who hosts the wildly popular The Voice, proposed to Siri Pinter, his girlfriend of six years. The parents of two reportedly plan to walk down the aisle soon. Daly, who is also a Today Show correspondent, did not say when he proposed, but Pinter wore a conspicuous diamond ring on her left ring finger at a Voice event on Saturday.

Meanwhile, something must be in the water over on the Glee set. Less than a week after Naya Rivera stepped out with an engagement ring from fiancé Big Sean, Dot-Marie Jones, the show's Coach Shannon Beiste, announced her engagement to longtime girlfriend Bridgett Casteen. Jones reportedly popped the question on Friday while the couple was at Disneyland Resort's Sleeping Beauty Castle for Gay Days Anaheim, a weekend event where more than 30,000 LGBT visitors and allies visit the park. "It's the happiest day of my life. I never though I'd find somebody that is so loving and kind," Jones told The Advocate.
And finally, Top Chef season 4 winner Stephanie Izard wed craft beer consultant Gary Valentine on Sunday in Chicago.
To help celebrate the couple's big day, Izard's pastry chef at Girl & the Goat created the most unbelievable wedding cake we've ever heard of. Layers included Strawberry Nesquick and chocolate marble with a bacon buttercream frosting, and a chocolate ganache, peanut butter and chocolate-covered Cheez-Its layer.
"Everyone raved about it," the first female winner of the Bravo hit show and chef at two successful Chicago restaurants, Girl & the Goat and Little Goat, said of her wedding menu. Guests had a choice of cavatelli, smoked eggplant and heirloom tomatoes or a rigatoni dish with pork ragu, along with a family-style spread of red wine braised beef short ribs, roasted black cod with grilled fennel and heirloom tomato sauce, among other mouth-watering options.
So there you have it! Congratulations to Carson, Dot-Marie, and Stephanie!
