Just this past weekend, Michele's now-fiancé Zandy Reich got down on one knee and proposed—and Michele said yes. On April 28, the Scream Queens star shared the news of her engagement on Instagram. "Yes," she captioned her photo, along with a ring emoji. The actress shared a selfie covering her face with her hand, giving everyone a close-up look at her massive new diamond ring.
But it's only recently been revealed how she met her beau, the not-so-mystery man who gave her that stunning ice. “They were introduced by Lea’s best friend, Stephanie Levinson. Zandy is best friends with Stephanie’s husband, so they all know and love each other,” a friend of the actress explained to People. “He’s a very business-minded guy and super smart. He started working for Theory and now he’s president of AYR. Lea’s always been a big fan of the clothing company and has worn their clothes to events.”
The friend also revealed more details about the romantic moment that Reich got down on one knee. “It was a super private proposal,” the source shared with the entertainment mag shortly after her Reich popped the question. “Their relationship has been very private, but they’re so happy. It was so romantic and she’s just so excited and feels so lucky. He’s a really nice guy. Lea is extremely happy.”
Another friend of the actress says that “this is the happiest that Lea has ever been.”
“Zandy is perfect for her. She knew it was right early on in their relationship,” the pal says. “She’s been through so much, everyone close to her is just thrilled that she’s found happiness.”
