When wedding bells are ringing, it’s hard to keep your attention on anything else. Just ask Laura Prepon; the Orange is the New Black actress is engaged to actor Ben Foster, and the celebrity couple is excited to plan out the perfect wedding.
In an interview with E! News, Laura Prepon enthusiastically gushed about her fiancee. The actress also spilled some details on the problems with wedding planning, the joys of engagement, and what the future holds for them both.
“I’m happy,” Prepon told E! News. “It’s amazing. He’s the love of my life.” The celebrity couple first hinted that love was in the air back in July. Photos of them canoodling and looking blissfully happy pretty much confirmed everyone’s suspicions. But it wasn’t until Laura Prepon hit the red carpet rocking a seriously sweet engagement ring at the Girl on the Train premiere that it was confirmed as official.
Now comes the hard part: actually planning the wedding. Anyone who’s ever had to handle one of these to-dos knows that scheduling is a veritable nightmare; now imagine two celebs trying to juggle their obligation so they can enjoy some matrimonial downtime.
“He’s going off to do two movies,” Prepon explained. “I just wrapped last week. It’s just, you know, scheduling. It’s a lot.” But despite these complications, Prepon and Foster already know what sort of wedding they want. Small is going to be key; an intimate affair with only close family and friends on hand to celebrate the special day.
Of course, that’s easier said than done when you’re part of a close-knit ensemble cast like Orange is the New Black — a fact that Prepon is quick to point out.
“Our cast alone is like 50 people.” We hope Prepon is already working on seating arrangements — it sounds like she has her work cut out for her!
