    "Speaking of love stories, ours began four years ago here in our favorite restaurant, the Beverly Hills ballroom. ... Nico, he got me, at the after party, he got me a cocktail, lured me into his limousine, and he swept me off my feet," Zeke said.

    The engagement is a long time coming! Back in 2021, Zeke gushed about his life with Nico in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: "I fell in love! About three years ago at the GLAAD Awards, I met my boyfriend, actor Nico Santos. We just bought a house and are mired in the domestic bliss of choosing paint colors, figuring out where exactly that draft is coming from, and replacing appliances that were just fine during the inspections!"

    Congrats to the happy couple!!!
