Troian Bellisario, who plays the role of Spencer Hastings on “Pretty Little Liars”, is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Patrick J. Adams.
The couple met in 2009 on the set of a play, and have managed a long distance romance as Troian shoots in Los Angeles and Patrick films “Suits” in Canada.
Patrick previously guest-starred on an episode of “Pretty Little Liars” and they starred together in the short film “The Come Up”.
Troian recently told Cosmopolitan the long distance was tough at first but they’ve managed to make it work.
Bellisario said, “I went away to shoot Pretty Little Liars and I started to feel like he wasn’t giving me everything I felt like he could be. So I was like, I’m going to bounce. And then the next day he said, ‘I just want to let you know, I have an audition for your show.’ Once he got the role, the moment I saw him, I was just like, ‘This is stupid face! Fine!’ And we’ve been together ever since.”
Troian, 28, and Patrick, 32, said of their long-distance relationship, “It’s a challenge but it’s kind of perfect because we’re such analytic, hyper intelligent people that sometimes just to be in each other’s faces all the time might have been too much for us. We’re really growing!”
Troian and Patrick are currently in Paris, where Patrick is filming a television adaptation of “Rosemary’s Baby”. It’s apparently the lovely place that Patrick got down on one knee!
The couple posted beautiful pictures from Paris on Instagram around Valentine’s Day.
In one post, Troian captioned the photo, “Last night was very unexpected. In the best way.”
