Everything Meghan Trainor Has Said About Fiancé Daryl Sabara
and Daryl Sabara got engaged
after a year and a half of dating.
Sabara, who starred in Spy Kids
, popped the question on Dec. 22, a day before the songstress' 24th birthday.
"I SAID YESSSS!!!! For my 24th birthday, the love of my life @darylsabara
made all of my dreams come true,” she wrote alongside an Instagram video of the proposal
. “He proposed to me under a tunnel of beautiful Christmas lights and surprised me with my family and friends. I’m still in shock. I’ve never been this happy!"
She continued, “Thank you Daryl, my family and friends for making me feel like a real princess 👸🏼💍😭💗 and thank you @ryan.trainor
for this amazing video that I’m gonna watch over and over again ❤️.”
She later shared an Instagram gallery
of the couples’ sweetest moments, writing, “I’m so happy it’s you @darylsabara
I knew it from the moment I met you❤️.”
"I asked every person I met since day one, ‘Find me a boyfriend!’ Like, especially new friends too. Chloë Grace Moretz
is a friend of mine, and day one of meeting her, I was like, ‘You know anybody that I could date? Or love? Whatever,'” Trainor told Chelsea Handler
on the host's Netflix show in October 2016 about how she met Sabara, 25. “And she’s like, ‘I know the nicest guy in the world, Daryl, and you should meet him.’ I was like, ‘Daryl
She added: “He plays guitar and piano and sings to me all the time. We sing Justin Timberlake
all the time."
During Trainor and Sabara's first date, which consisted of bowling and karaoke with another couple, they shared their first kiss
“He kissed me at the bowling alley,” Trainor said in Cosmopolitan's
May 2017 issue. “I told my security to step outside ‘cause I didn’t want to be watched. LOL.”
The "Dear Future Husband" singer continued: “He was the best kisser ever. I know I’m really good at kissing, but I was shocked when he was."
“We did it! We survived a world tour without canceling any shows!” Trainor, who previously canceled dates due to her first vocal cord surgery in 2015
, posted on Instagram in September 2016 along with a post-tour onesie selfie of her and Sabara. “Thank you Daryl for being so amazing.”
A month later, Trainor made their relationship Instagram official
when she posted another selfie
with the caption: "I [heart] Madrid … and this guy."
“We went out on a date,” Trainor told PEOPLE of how she marked her five-month anniversary
with Sabara in December 2016. “[We went to] our favorite sushi place we love that’s real close to the house because we’re lazy to drive far away."
And as for Sabara’s anniversary gift for his girlfriend, he wasn’t at all puzzled about what to get her.
“He got me puzzles because he knows I’m obsessed with puzzles right now,” Trainor said. “So we sat and talked and did that all night which was the most fun I’ve had in a minute.”
Trainor opened up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
in April 2017 about her secret second vocal cord surgery
and how Sabara supported her through it.
"The real trouper was my boyfriend, ’cause he learned sign language for me, so I’d spell out words for him, and I’d get frustrated, like, ‘No, wrong!’ and he would learn and he just stuck with me through it,” Trainor said. “He would stick with me and paint with me, even though his were not as good as mine. He put effort in it. ”
She continued: "I did it! I found one! He’s, like, better than whatever I wished for.”
“I never really felt sexy with guys before,” Trainor said
in Cosmopolitan's May 2017 issue
. “No one expressed how they liked my body out loud in the bedroom until I met Daryl. He is obsessed
with it — every inch. And that has improved my confidence more than even ‘[All About That] Bass'
did. He’s a champion, so we’re in heaven.”
She also predicted their future engagement and said, "I wrote six songs on the road about him in front of his face. One is called ‘Marry Me.’"
“I’m super in love, I hope to stay super in love. He’s a dream — he’s more than a dream," Trainor told PEOPLE
when asked about her relationship
in April 2017. "You know when you wish [on] every eyelash you have? Like, ‘I wish for the perfect guy!’ That was him, like he caught all my eyelashes, as cheesy and weird as that is. But yeah, he’s even better than I thought."
"An entire year with the love of my life. I am truly the luckiest girl in the world," Trainor captioned a mashup video
of moments with Sabara to celebrate their one-year anniversary
in July 2017."Thank you Daryl for loving me and making me feel beautiful and special every single day this year. Thank you for making me a better songwriter. I love you with all of my heart."
“He saved my life in every single way
. He taught me how to eat healthy
and we work out together,” Trainor told Entertainment Tonight
in January at Fox’s Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles.
Though a wedding is on the way, Trainor said the two are going to take some time and enjoy being “fiancés” before rushing down the aisle. “We’ve got a lot of friends and family and we’re trying to think how we can fit them all in one place and it’s going to take some planning,” she said.
They’ll be taking an equal amount of time before they have kids. “That’s why I’m working on my body,” Trainor said. “I want to be as healthy as I possibly can be for one day when we want to have kids.”
“It was so cute … I’m so happy!” Trainor recalled, detailing Sabara’s proposal during an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“I was trying to Snapchat and he told me, ‘Can you put that away for a second.’ I lost my voice. I was screaming, ‘It’s happening, yes, it’s happening!’ "
Jokingly she added that she had "blacked out.”
Though the proposal caught her off-guard, Trainor revealed that she and Sabara, who were set up by actress Chloë Grace Moretz
, had already picked out the perfect sparkler
“We picked out the ring months before, I was just waiting for him to propose,” she admitted.
THROUGH SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH
The "Dear Future Husband" singer's engagement story is enviable
, but it's what happened after that might have some people cringing. During an appearance on The Talk,
the Grammy winner revealed she threw up on her new fiancé
a day after proposed to her in December 2017. "It's kind of gross," she warned. "We're eating so much healthier nowadays, but we were at the hotel and we’re eating the hotel food. The day that we drove home I got food poisoning on the car ride."
Trainor continued: "So, he's driving and I'm just in his face like, 'Urghl' [throwing up], and I told him, 'I'm so sorry.' He's like, 'I'd kiss you right now.' " And in case you were wondering, he did.
“He’s singing on every song. He was with me every day in the studio, just loving on me and being so cute,” Trainor told PEOPLE of sharing the studio with her beloved
. “I had to slow down on the love songs because it was just easy for me. I’m so in love my dad started yelling at me, like, ‘There’s too many love songs! The album’s not about Daryl!’ I was like, ‘But I’m happy and in a really good place now!'”
