Nick Offerman & Megan Mullally Have An Awesome Engagement Story, Just As You Expected


Not that you need further proof Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally are the epitome of everything that is great with Hollywood, marriage and mankind in general, but here it is anyway.

The hilariously talented couple interviewed with Playboy (with clothes on, sicko) and their love is so palpable you can almost smell it. In the piece, Offerman described how he proposed to Mullally, and how he fake-proposed to her three times prior.

Offerman brought three disposable rings fabricated by 'Will & Grace''s costume designer in order to joke-propose to Mullally three different times [in Paris]. In succession, he dropped fake rings down a Parisian grate, from the top of the Eiffel Tower and off the Pont Neuf, the city’s oldest standing bridge. 'I thought it was hilarious,' says Mullally. 'But the rings got progressively bigger, and for a moment I thought the last one might be real.'

The actual ring and proposal arrived in 2002. Back in Europe—London this time—Offerman arranged for a romantic stop at the Queen Mary's Rose Garden in Regent’s Park. 'Until we got there, I was in a heightened sense of agitation,' he says.

'I couldn't figure out what was up with him,' Mullally remembers. 'He was sucking and chewing on his mustache like crazy. I thought to myself, What is going on? He has never chewed on his mustache before!'

As for the proposal itself, Offerman says, 'We were heading down this path over a bridge by a Japanese garden, and all the ducks, insects and frogs were furiously copulating around us. I feel like when our coupling is at hand, nature responds with a very positive reverberation. And I was right; she said yes.' [Playboy]

Yeah, we know you want to hug them too.
