Dot-Marie Jones, who plays coach
Shannon Beiste on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, got engaged to
her girlfriend, Bridgett Casteen, on Friday.
According to gay glossy The
Advocate, Jones proposed to Casteen, 39, at Disneyland Resort in
Anaheim as the park celebrated its annual Anaheim Gay Days.
The couple met in December 2010.
“It's the happiest day of my life,”
49, told the magazine. “I never thought I'd find somebody that
is loving and kind.”
“SO HAPPY!!” she messaged on
Twitter along with a photo of the pair.
Jones first discussed her engagement
during a Q&A session with Eddie Shapiro, a co-founder of Anaheim
Gay Days, held Friday inside Disney's Grand California Hotel. Jones
substituted for Tabatha Coffey, the star of cabler Bravo's Tabatha
Takes Over, who canceled at the last minute due to an illness.
Jones said that she proposed to
Casteen, who has three children from a previous relationship, near the
park's Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Jones has been nominated three times
for an Emmy for her role on Glee.
