“Boy Meets World” star Rider Strong is engaged to Alexandra Barreto. Strong popped the question on December 23.
“I took her for a walk under the redwoods on the property where I grew up in Northern California,” he tells UsMagazine.com. “It was pouring rain, but it didn’t look like it was going to stop anytime soon, so I just decided to go for it.”
Strong proposed with a ring he made himself after learning how to do a lost wax casting from a jeweler in Echo Park.
“I carved the ring out of wax, and then cast it in white gold,” he explains. “I had my dad make a wooden ring box for me. My dad made my mom’s ring, so I was following in his footsteps.”
The couple met on the TV series “Pepper Dennis,” and worked together on a Barack Obama presidential campaign video.
