Aidy Bryant sure can keep a secret!
Bryant, 29, told the adorable engagement story, noting that she returned home from work at SNL one night in October to find her and O’Malley’s dog wearing a bowtie.
“I was like, ‘My dog doesn’t wear a bowtie! Where is he going tonight?’ Basically, the second I shut the door, a man — who I discovered was Connor — frantically came around the corner and was just like, ‘Will you marry me?!’ No box. No ‘I love you,’ ” Bryant said.
“Just a man in full terror standing very far from a dog in a bowtie, 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.”
Bryant first sparked engagement rumors in January when she wore a sizable sparkler on her ring finger. Now, the cat’s out of the bag.
“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,” she told Meyers.

“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 alluded to the big news in an Instagram post shared before the TV appearance, including a trio of emojis: “💕💍💋.”
