Rider Strong, an actor known for his role of Shawn Hunter on the 90s show “Boy Meets World”, has proposed to his long-time girlfriend Alexandra Barreto!
Strong popped the question on Christmas Day with an engagement ring he actually made himself!
The 33-year-old actor’s rep confirmed the engagement, stating, “He proposed with a handmade ring he created himself”.
Rider and Alexandra met while they worked together on the 2006 television series “Pepper Dennis”. On the show, Rider played Chick Dirka, the cameraman for Rebecca Romijn.
Rider Strong guest starred on an episode of the ABC show “Castle” as Rocco, the owner of an art gallery who had been shot dead, in 2009.
The actor also voiced a character on Disney Channel’s cartoon series “Kim Possible”.
Strong’s former series “Boy Meets World” is coming back soon in a new spin-off called “Girls Meet World”, which will feature original cast members Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel. The former onscreen couple will reprise their rolls but will now be parents to a teen daughter.
Rider will no be appearing in the show, writing on his website last month, “At this point, I have no official involvement. There might be a chance to see some of the BMW cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. But Girl Meets World will be, and I think it should be, it’s own show.”
