The actress announced the exciting news on Valentine's Day
Jessica Rothe is getting married!
The Happy Death Day 2U star, 31, announced the exciting news on Thursday, a.k.a. Valentine’s Day.
“Cat’s out of the bag! Happy Valentine’s Day to my brilliant, amazing, wonderful, how-did-I-get-so-lucky FIANCÉ and of course, most importantly, to Otis the pup,” Rothe captioned a clip of photos of herself and fiancé Eric Flem while showing off her engagement ring.
The pair flashed wide smiles as they posed in matching red beanies, with the view of a snowy forest in the background. Their dog Otis was also in the montage, wearing a green sweater.
Flem, who is also an actor, announced the engagement on his own Instagram account writing, “It’s on TV so it’s officially official: we’re ENGAGED AF! Otis is undecided in his emotions but we’re excited as hell!” Flem wrote over a selfie, similar to a shot from Rothe’s video.
The news of Rothe’s engagement comes just one day after her film, Happy Death Day 2U, hits theatres.
The film, which follows Tree Gelbman (Rothe) as she wakes up in horror to learn that she’s stuck in a parallel universe, is a sequel to the original Happy Death Day, which was released in 2017.
In the first film, Rothe plays Tree again, but as a college student who must relive the day of her murder over and over again, in a loop until she discovers who killed her.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Rothe opened up about the films’ success.
“It’s been amazing. I had no idea that the first one would do what it did, but I knew we were making something special,” Rothe told the outlet.
“Everyone brought their A game, which is something else that I think Chris is brilliant at: inspiring people to do work they didn’t even know they could do,” Rothe said of the film’s director Christopher Landon.
“There were so many things that fell into place, and it’s one of the reasons I love making movies because when you make a good one, it truly is lightning in a bottle,” Rothe added.
