Rider Strong, Alexandra Berreto To Wed On Sunday


Rider Strong will soon be a married man! People reports that the former "Boy Meets World" star is set to tie the knot with girlfriend Alexandra Berreto in Oregon in Sunday. Strong, 33, and Berreto first met in 2006, on the set of the WB series "Pepper Dennis."

In a statement to the publication, Strong said: "I'm incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime." He also detailed the incredibly romantic way in which he proposed to his longtime love: with a ring he cobbled together himself, underneath redwood trees and pouring rain in Northern California, where Strong grew up.

"I spend weeks making the ring in secret. I carved the ring out of wax, cast it in white gold and had my dad make a wooden ring box for me. My dad made my mom's ring, so I was following in his footsteps," Strong said.

The actor will be guest starring on his former show's highly-anticipated spinoff, "Girl Meets World," which stars "Boy Meets World" originals Ben Savage and Topanga as the now-married parents to daughter Riley. The show is set to air as a sitcom on Disney in 2014.

In an interview with TV Line, Strong admitted that it was rough watching himself grow up on the hit '90s sitcom. “I actually never watched the show when it was on the air,” he said. “It’s probably because I had my awkward teenage phase when it was on television. I did watch the second season with my family -- I was around 14 years old -- and when you’re at that age, you hate the way you look and talk, so I hated watching it.”
