Over the weekend, Inaba and her boyfriend, General Hospital actor Robb Derringer, got engaged during a romantic beach trip on the Californian coast — which was actually the site of their first date — and they shared the details of the unforgettable proposal during an interview with People magazine on Wednesday, Dec. 14.
“Saturdays are special to us, because our first date was on a Saturday and we have celebrated with a toast, a visit to a beach, special date, a motorcycle adventure or a road trip on every Saturday since,” Inaba told the publication. “So on Saturday, we returned to the place of our first date and got engaged at the same place we shared our spontaneous and magical first date.”
The proposal happened on the secluded stretch of beach where the couple found themselves alone with a bonfire and a bottle of Aubert Chardonnay. Derringer reportedly got down on one knee and asked Inaba to be his wife.
The couple also confirmed their happy news via social media. Inaba took to Instagram to share the photo and accompanying headline, “Carrie Ann Inaba and Robb Derringer Get Engaged After ‘Perfect’ Proposal” from the People article. She captioned it, “We’re so excited to share this with everyone….IT’S TRUE! #believeinlove @robbderringer…”
Derringer also took to Instagram to share a photo of himself and Inaba and the gorgeous engagement ring he gifted her. He captioned the post with a sweet tribute to his soon-to-be-wife, writing, “So overjoyed to share the best thing that has ever happened to me when @carrieanninaba made me the luckiest guy in the world in saying….yes. Thanks to [jewelry designer] @jeandousset for helping me to create the most unique, exquisite symbol of my love for Carrie, and to @people for such a lovely article. #relentless #adventuresinlove #affianced.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
