Shut up and listen! Heather Matarazzo — who played Lilly Moscovitz, Princess Mia’s best friend, in The Princess Diaries — is engaged. On Monday, January 15th, Matarazzo announced on Twitter that she proposed to her girlfriend, Heather Turman, on January 11th. After Turman said yes, the couple decided to keep their engagement private for a few days, so they could quietly enjoy this exciting time together.
To accompany this beautiful message, Matarazzo included three photos of her engagement. It features the pair on the beach, facing the water, and displays the moment Turman realized she was being proposed to. The adorable kiss that follows will surely make your heart grow three sizes.
Turman shared the same photos on Instagram, writing, “We kept it to ourselves for a few days, but it’s official! I’m engaged to the absolute, unequivocal love of my life. I never knew I could find someone that matches me the way she does, in all ways… always. If Hollywood is my pyramids, then she is my Fatima. This is it. 🔥🔥 #whenyouknowyouknow#secondtimesacharm.” Matarazzo did the same on her Instagram account, but instead included a quote from Paulo Coelho’s book The Alchemist:
E! News reports that Matarazzo and Turman met in 2016, when they were both working on the film Stuck. Turman was a writer/producer, while Matarazzo starred in the production. On her Instagram, the former wrote about working with Matarazzo, saying that they quickly developed a mutual respect for each other as their love grew.
We love this story and we love their love. Congratulations, Heather and Heather!
