Elvis Duran, the host of Elvis Duran
and the Morning Show, got engaged to his boyfriend of almost
eight years on Friday.
Alan Carr, a zookeeper from Staten
Island, asked Duran to marry him by writing “Elvis, Will You Marry
Me?” on an open umbrella, a Friday the 13th
Carr shared a photo from the engagement
“Yesterday was Friday the 13th,”
Carr captioned the photo. “People believe that the day brings bad
luck, but I totally disagree. I was born on Friday, June 13th. I’ve
always considered myself to be lucky and blessed, as I was when Elvis
came into my life almost 8 years ago…first as my boyfriend and now
fiancé!!!! They say opening umbrellas in the house brings bad luck,
but this time I don’t believe it. I love you Elvis Duran!”
Duran's daily morning radio show is
heard on New York's Z100 and in syndication on Premiere Networks. It
debuted in 1996.
Photos from the engagement were shared
on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show website.
