Congratulations and wedding bells are in Glee star Darren Criss’ future. The actor just announced that after seven long years of dating, he decided to take the next step with his girlfriend, Mia Swier. The two are now engaged, and the announcement all went down on Instagram. Darren shared with his followers a very lovely written note in which he shares just how exciting it is to start this next chapter of his life with someone so important to him.
In his post, Darren wrote, “Mia and I have had seven and a half years of fun, wacky, wonderful, CRAZY adventures together. And I’m happy to announce that we’re kicking those adventures up a notch. We’re goin for it. To boldly go where neither of us have gone before. Engage. ???”
Awww! So sweet! The happiness literally radiates off them in that picture too, it’s so easy to tell just how in love they actually are. Fans will remember that the two actually hid their relationship for a very long time only announcing publicly they were in fact a couple back in 2013, despite being together since 2010.
Looks like Darren and Mia aren’t hiding their love any more. Although the two seem to be pretty private about their relationship, Mia does make the occasional appearance on the actor’s social media feed. On Halloween, Darren shared great pictures of their couples costume —in which the two channeled Romeo and Juliet.
Darren hasn’t spilled on how he exactly popped the question, but there’s no doubt that when he does reveal how, it will hit everyone in the feels — just like how Blaine’s proposal to Kurt on the hit series made us tear up. Congratulations once again to Darren and Mia on this special moment. We certainly wish them a lifetime of happiness.
