“I was completely surprised, and the funniest thing about that is that I consider myself someone impossible to surprise and yet I am constantly,” the Girls star, 25, told Late Night host and good friend Seth Meyers as she showed off her huge and sparkling engagement ring.
“I’m obsessed with it. I stare at it a lot,” a giddy Williams, who has said she dreams of becoming a mom, shared of the rock. “We’re thrilled.”
While she offered up no details of how the proposal went down, Williams said the weight of making such a huge life decision definitely is a game-changer.
“It feels a little different, as you know,” she told Meyers, who got married last September. “It just changes the stakes clearly. It’s really fun.”
It’s also changed how Williams, a consummate fan of television’s The Bachelor, watches her fave show.
“Suddenly the show feels real,” she said. “I have empathy. I was filled with anxiety for all of the contestants.”
The Bachelor’s showrunners apparently acknowledged her support: Williams said the show sent her a bouquet of a dozen roses on Valentine’s Day with the appropriate message, “Will you accept these roses?”
