Ashley Tisdale’s fiancé is a “bad boy” with gentlemanly qualities.
The former High School Musical actress got engaged to musician Christopher French last week.
She is besotted with him due to his cool but polite ways.
“She is in love with the ‘darker, bad boy’ types, and him being just that is why she has always been attracted to him,” a source told Us Weekly.
“He is still a gentleman, though. [He] holds out her chair for her, holds the door, etc. but is still edgy, which is why they mesh.”
The Annie Automatic rocker proposed to the 28-year-old on the 103rd floor of New York’s Empire State building.
Ashley revealed her plans to marry via micro-blogging website Twitter.
“Best night of my life. We’re on top of the world,” she shared.
The thespian showed off her two platinum bands when she stepped out in the Big Apple’s SoHo area the following day.
She thanked fans for their support in the days after and was happy to make some new purchases to match her new bling.
“Excited to run around and have a shopping day in NYC!” she wrote.
“Thank you guys for all your well wishes. Means so much to me. We’re so grateful and excited.”
The couple debuted their relations when they went out in Los Angeles in December 2012.
It was only a few months after Ashley broke up with her on-and-off boyfriend Scott Speer.
“She like those rocker types,” a source previously told Us. “They have mutual friends and just met through hanging out.”
