Bryant kept quiet about her engagement to screenwriter Conner O’Malley for six months. She told Seth Meyers on Thursday on his late-night show about the proposal, "I was like, ‘My dog doesn’t wear a bow tie! Where is he going tonight?’ Basically, the second I shut the door, a man — who I discovered was Conner — frantically came around the corner and was just like, ‘Will you marry me?!’ No box. No ‘I love you.’”

She went on, "Just a man in full terror standing very far from a dog in a bow tie, just holding a loose ring, going, ‘Will you marry me?’ I was like, ‘What?’ I truly couldn’t comprehend what was happening, and I kept saying, ‘Is this a joke? Are you doing a joke?’ And then I said, ‘Of course I’ll marry you. I love you.’ And it was really nice.” Watch!

The two dated for nearly a decade before he popped the question. She said, "We’ve been together a long time. We’ve been together almost nine years. So, a lot of the shimmer and shine has faded and we’re just living every damn day as best we can. We’ve seen each other through a lot,” she added. “Like, he used to work as a full-blown garbage man — not a joke, just a garbage man. I used to sweep up hair in a barber shop. I mean, we’ve like, been through it.”

Bryant sparked engagement rumors in January when she wore a ring on that finger while making an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
