'Glee's' Dot-Marie Jones Engaged to Longtime Girlfriend
Glee's Dot-Marie Jones is ready to walk down the aisle.
The actress, best known for her role as Coach Shannon Beiste on the Fox series, proposed to her longtime girlfriend, Bridgett Casteen, near Disneyland Resort's Sleeping Beauty Castle in Anaheim on Friday, during Gay Days, The Advocate reported.
The couple began dating nearly three years ago. Jones, 49, revealed her big news during a Q&A session with Eddie Shapiro, co-founder of Gay Days Anaheim, an annual event during the first weekend in October that organizers say draws more than 30,000 people to the amusement park.
"It’s the happiest day of my life. I never thought I’d find somebody that is so loving and kind," Jones told The Advocate.
This will mark the first marriage for Jones. Casteen, 39, has two children with her ex-husband, Jack Parham.
Jones has received three Emmy nominations for her role on Glee. Her other credits include appearances on Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy's FX series Nip/Tuck.
Her engagement follows on the heels fellow Glee actress Naya Rivera's engagement to Big Sean.
