    Manny Jacinto has got engaged to Dianne Doan

    The 32-year-old star has proposed to his longtime girlfriend after being inspired to pop the question by his 'The Good Place' character Jason Mendoza


    Speaking on a panel at Vulture Fest 2019 over the weekend, he said: "I was toying when to pop the question for a long time.

    "I looked at the Janet/Jason relationship, and there's a sentence that Jason says to Chidi about relationships and it hit me pretty hard.

    "I thought it was a sign that I needed to do it, and a week later I popped the question."

    To make the proposal perfect, Manny took the 'Descendants' actress around to places that held a special meaning to them, including the sites of their first date and "dance class".

    Eventually - after each location carried a message revealing why they were so important - he brought both their families into the romantic ploy.

    He added: "I took her to places that really meant a lot to us. Where I first met her, where I first saw her, where we had our first date, and where we had our first dance class.

    "I had these canvas things written down with a message saying why the places were important to us.

    "At every location I had her close her eyes, I'd hold up the canvas, and she would open her eyes. I took her through five different places, and at the last place I had our families waiting and I proposed."

    Manny admitted Dianne, 29, thought he was going to get down on one knee at the first spot, but she soon got over her disappointment.

    He laughed: "I think she thought I was going to pop the question at the first place. So with the first note, she was like, 'Oh that's cool'. I think she was a little disappointed there wasn't more."
