Disney Stars Ryan McCartan, 22, and Dove Cameron, 20, are engaged after three years of a relationship. The couple announced their engagement news on social media the same day they got engaged. The two met while shooting for a Disney sitcom Liv and Maddie in 2013. Both actors played a couple in the series, which is now running in its 4th season.
Ryan dedicated his 1000th post on Instagram to Dove, referring the actor as his ‘fiancee’, writing, “Dedicating to my 1000th post to my fiancee,” he said. “I can’t believe I get to call you that. Thanks for saying yes.”
While Dove confirmed this news by posting a beach selfie captioned as, ‘Calling you my “boyfriend” never really felt right anyway. Fiancee looks better on you’.
How they first met
Ryan and Dove met on the sets of a popular sitcom Liv and Maddie, where the couple played Maddie Rooney and Diggie Rooney. Last year, they costarred in a TV film R.L. Stine’s Monsterville:The Cabinet of Souls.
Both of them collaborated musically and released a video called The Girl and the Dreamcatcher. In 2015, they also released a lyric video: Someone You Like. They shared the story behind this, saying, “Technically this is the first song The Girl and the Dreamcatcher ever wrote. It took us awhile to put it out as an official single, simply because we wanted to get it right. It’s a direct and honest story-song depicting our true and real feelings about each other. So glad we finally get to share it in this incarnation: It’s an old song to us, but a new version for the fans.”
To make it more special, the proposal coincided with the release of the lyric video to Someone You Like, a play featuring the early stages of their love life.
Blessings pouring in
The couple’s co-star, Jessica Marie Garcia from Liv and Maddie who got engaged in January congratulated them on Twitter by posting a comment, writing, ‘Looks like bride war has begun’. While another actor, Zach Gordon, also Ryan’s close friend, shared a video of Ryan predicting, ‘I am going to marry Dove Cameron’ long time ago. He wrote, ‘Filmed on January 2014 @ryanmccarton. I’m so happy for you and @DaveCameron-congratulations you two. #Heknew.’
The young couple are soon going to be known as ‘McCartan’s’. Congrats to the duo!!
