There’s no question that Aidy Bryant is one of the funniest players on the current “Saturday Night Live” roster, blessing the world with characters like Adele and that drunk girl dressed as mouse who thinks Halloween is going to be super fun this year.
So it only makes sense that Bryant’s sense of humor would bleed into her personal life, considering she’s been dating “SNL” writer Conner O’Malley for nearly a decade. The two recently got engaged, so when Bryant stopped by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Thursday, she made sure to tell us all exactly how it went down.
One night after work on the late-night sketch show with Lin Manuel Miranda, she returned home to find a strange sight: her dog wearing a bowtie.
“I was like, ‘My dog doesn’t wear a bow tie! Where is he going tonight?’” she joked. “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 added. “Just a man in full terror standing very far from a dog in a bowtie, just holding a loose ring.”
The comedian was understandably taken aback and and thought the proposal was some elaborate joke, until she realized he was serious. Bryant, of course, said yes and the two have been happily engaged ever since.
We guess this means the “international nasty girl” is officially out of commission.
