Tobin announced her engagement to Zach Martin on a new episode of her LadyGang podcast
Becca Tobin is engaged!
“I got engaged!” Tobin told cohosts Keltie Knight and Jac Vanek.
When Knight and Vanek cheered and asked for more details, Tobin continued, “This hurts me so much because this [attention] is the part of being engaged that I don’t want, so this is painful for me.”
Tobin, 30, revealed that everybody (including her!) was surprised by the engagement.
“Every single person thought I was kidding. I thought he was kidding when he had the ring in front of my face!” she said. “I thought it was fake.”
The ring is very real, however, and can be glimpsed in a photo Tobin posted on Instagram on Saturday while attending the Shaky Knees music festival with Martin in Atlanta.
Despite not wanting to go into too much detail, Tobin did admit that she is “really thrilled.”
“We don’t have an extravagant story. I told him I would, like, castrate him if he did anything crazy,” said the actress, who played Kitty Wilde on Glee for three seasons. “I really didn’t want, like, a thing, so it was, like, really perfect for me. So there you go. One day I’ll tell the story.”
The news comes nearly two years after Tobin’s former boyfriend, nightlife entrepreneur Matt Bendik, was found dead in a Philadelphia hotel room. Shortly after Bendik’s death, Tobin paid tribute to him on Instagram.
“Thank you all for the love and support,” she wrote. “Matt was the most extraordinary man I knew and he will live in my heart forever.”
