Sorry, Gleeks—if you’ve been dreaming of a happily ever after with Mr. Schuester, hands off, because Matthew Morrison is engaged!
According to E! Online, the news that Matthew had popped the question to his girlfriend of two years, model Renee Puente—and that she had said yes, of course—was announced onstage at Elton John’s White Tie and Tiara Ball in London last night. After the announcement, Coldplay’s Chris Martin joined Sir Elton in serenading the happy couple with a duet of “Your Song.” Awwww!
A source close to Matthew revealed to E!, “They are thrilled. It is the first marriage for them both. He loves her so much. The theme of the night was love, which is so appropriate.” They seem like an excellent match; Matthew has said of the relationship in the past, “I’m very happy… Renee’s not in the industry. I need that normality. We like to stay home and cook, we’re not that Hollywood.”
No word on when the wedding will be yet, but we’ll keep our ear to the ground. Congrats to the soon-to-be happily married couple!
