One of your fave Disney stars is engaged

The actor who played one of our fave wizards of all time (aside from Harry Potter, of course), David Henrie is engaged!

The Wizards of Waverly Place star announced that he is set to tie the knot to his GF Maria Cahil after dating for several years.

“It was a big thing… I wanted to do something really special, something that would make everything pale in comparison to our entire relationship so far,” David told Blog De Los Angeles.

“Something we could look back on and that we both think, ‘wow, that was amazing, right?’ The dating process leading to a big finale… So I came up with a plan. I wanted it to be a big surprise, something she would never see coming.”

The 27-year-old flew over his bae’s family from Delaware to Southern California to be with the young couple during their happy moment.


After realising that his girl had classes at the time that he wanted to pop the question, Henrie David paid off a substitute teacher to cancel class so she’d be free.

The How I Met Your Mother star chartered a helicopter to Catalina Island, and then took her to Mission San Juan Capistrano with some friends.

He then got down on one knee and proposed to his loving girlfriend.

“My heart started beating out of my chest, literally exploding out of my chest,” David said. “The day went so smooth, so perfect, so easy that I almost forgot that I was proposing! And at that second, it all hit me, like a brick, my hands started shaking.”

Damn, who knew that the RL Justin Russo could be so romantic!?

We’re happy AF for the gorj couple!
