“We went out to the park, one of the few things we could do at that point in lockdown, and we kind of had a little picnic and you know, I popped the question,” Riz said during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “And she looked up and was like, ‘You’re joking.’ ”

“Maybe the way I proposed didn’t help because she’s a novelist, she’s amazing with words,” he continued.

“She loves a bit of Scrabble. So we were actually playing Scrabble and I did that corny thing where I stole all the correct letters up and spelled out ‘Will you marry me?’” he added of the exact way he popped the question.

If you didn’t know Riz was even married, most of the world did not! He revealed he married in secret a few months ago.
