College Humor co-founder Ricky Van Veen proposed on the couch where the pair watched 'The Bachelor' together every week
During a guest appearance on Bachelor Live after Monday’s episode of the reality romance show, Williams shared her own personal connection to the reality show, which she says “goes so deep.”
“I would not be married to my husband [Ricky Van Veen] if it weren’t for this show,” reveals the Girls star, 27. “We went to a weekly viewing party every week and it was like a big group date, but with both genders equally distributed … it was like how we met up.”
Williams explains that the viewing party took place every week on a certain couch at a friend’s house.
“And that’s where Ricky proposed to me – on Lee Eisenberg’s couch!” she says.
Williams and the College Humor co-founder, 35, dated for more than three years before getting engaged in February 2014. The pair tied the knot last September at a dreamy wedding officiated by Tom Hanks in Saratoga, Wyoming.
Williams recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about how her behavior at her own wedding differed from that of her Girls character Marnie’s in the wedding that will open the show’s upcoming fifth season.
“I was a very different bride than Marnie. Thank God,” she said. “I think a lot of people showed up to my wedding expecting more Marnie than they got.”
