Matthew Morrison took his fiancée’s breath away when he proposed to her.
The Glee actor got down on bended knee whilst out on a horse trek in Maui, taking his future wife Renee Puente by complete surprise.
The couple have been dating since 2011, and enjoy their relationship away from the spotlight preferring cozy nights in cooking to lavish showbiz parties.
“She couldn’t breathe for a little bit. So I had to do some CPR, then I asked her again and she said yes,” he joked to Britain’s OK magazine.
“We tied the horses up and took a little walk on the beach and I knelt down and asked her to spend the rest of her life with me.”
Coldplay front man Chris Martin let the engagement slip at this year’s White Tie and Tiara Summer Ball, held annually by Sir Elton John.
The yearly party, which raises money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, is one of the few big showbiz events Matthew and his partner like to attend.
“Elton and Chris both sang Your Song to us that night. We got engaged a month before, but we kept it to ourselves. That was a special night for us because it was at the same party a couple of years prior that we came out as a couple, so it was a great place to announce the engagement,” Matthew gushed.
Children are on the horizon for the couple, but 33-year-old Matthew says they’re in no hurry for that yet.
Instead he wants the pair to enjoy married life as just the two of them for a little bit. They’ll tie the knot in early 2015.
“Marriage won’t change us, I hope it doesn’t because I love how we’re just the best and have so much fun together. The thing we’re looking forward to is having kids one day – that’s the big thing that will change our relationship.
“We want to have a little more time to ourselves first, so we’re not quite sure exactly when,” he said.
