Actor Daniel Franzese Proposes to Partner in Adorable, Caffeinated Way

Yesterday, People magazine revealed that 38-year-old Mean Girls and Looking star Daniel Franzese recently got engaged to his boyfriend of over a year, Joseph Bradley Phillips.

Franzese popped the question in the Starbucks where they first met by handing the barista the engagement ring and having them call out “Mr. and Mr. Franzese” while handing the couple their coffees. Phillips coffee looked and felt different than usual, and when he opened it he discovered the ring inside, at which point Franzese went down on one knee and said “Since I first saw you here, you have opened your heart to me, and I vow to God that for the rest of my life to honor and protect that heart if you will be my husband. Will you marry me?”

Phillips said yes and will take Franzese’s last name. Franzese told People, “Finding my soulmate has made all the years I struggled with myself worth it.” Congrats to them both!

In addition to acting, Franzese also recently appeared in a Unicorn Booty livecast during National HIV Testing Day. You can see pics of the Starbucks proposal at People.
