‘To All the Boys’ star Lana Condor engaged to boyfriend of 6 years

    Lana Condor has clearly moved on from all the boys she’s loved before, as she recently announced her engagement to long-time boyfriend Anthony De La Torre.

    The 24-year-old actor, known for her role as Lara Jean in the popular Netflix film franchise “To All The Boys,” shared the news of her engagement to the musician to Instagram on Friday.

    The announcement features a carousel of several engagement photos with the pair posed outdoors, with their dogs Emmy and Timmy making an appearance in one of them. 

    On the second slide, Condor shared a video of her emotional response taken by her fiancé as she admires her newly acquired diamond ring on her finger. 

    “You’re my fiancé!” she calls out to him in disbelief before telling him, “I love you.” 

    In the caption, she talked about about how “lucky” she was to be engaged to De La Torre.

    “Saying YES was the easiest decision I’ve ever made,” she wrote. “I consider myself the absolute luckiest woman alive to live in your sphere. Aside from my father, without a doubt, you are the greatest man in the world. Emmy & Timmy said it’s about time mommy & daddy got engaged!!!” 

    She went on to describe the details of her ring: “Anthony worked with the INCREDIBLE Vietnamese female owned @parisjewellerscanada to design the most stunning piece I’ve ever seen! The fact he knew how important it was to me that he’d collaborate w/ a Vietnamese company to help design my ring is a testament to just how truly thoughtful he always is. I cannot wait to be your wife, baby. I love you a million times over.”

    Celebrities have flooded the comments to congratulate the two, including Jenny Han, author of the original “To All the Boys” book series on which the films were based, as well as actor Noah Centineo, who played Condor’s on-screen love interest in the films. 

    De La Torre shared a similar post on Friday from his own perspective. 

    “That moment when you ask your best friend to be by your side forever… I’ve wanted to do this for 6 years,” he wrote in the caption. “The easiest decision I’ve ever made was to ask this angel to be my wife.”

    He continued, “I’m so grateful to have designed this ring with the Vietnamese owned @parisjewellerscanada every detail of the ring has purpose and means so much to us both.”

    “P.S. yes that was my first time opening a bottle of champagne,” he finished off the message, in reference to some of the engagement photos featuring a bottle of champagne spraying over the two. 

    On TikTok, where De La Torre has frequently posted videos with his now-fiancé, he uploaded a video revealing how they’d kept the engagement a secret for some time and sharing just how happy they are now. 

    While the two have been dating for six years, they first met at a bar in Beverly Hills back in 2015. In a 2019 interview with Cosmopolitan, Condor revealed how it was during an Emmys event, her first-ever entertainment function, that the two locked eyes. She left without his number at first but quickly went back to grab it — a moment that marks the beginning of her “always and forever.”
