David Henrie just pulled off his greatest magic trick yet. The “Wizards of Waverly Place” star revealed that he’s been secretly engaged for months.
Henrie announced the happy news in a precious Instagram post this weekend.
“I always debated keeping my personal life private or public, but you guys have meant so much to me over the years, I just have to share my JOY,” Henrie wrote. “I’m officially engaged to my best friend.”
The lucky lady is none other than Maria Cahill, a former Miss Delaware and current educator.
Henrie also shared a link to an interview with Blog De Los Angeles, in which he recounted his romantic proposal.
“I wanted it to be a big surprise, something she would never see coming,” Henrie said. “So here were the hurdles I had to face: It involved a private helicopter, going off to an island, bringing her to a very special church ... It also involved getting her whole family from Delaware flown out, and most important: It all needed to be a complete surprise.”
Henrie managed to pull off his complicated proposal, much to Cahill’s delight.
“She started sobbing. I had seen her crying in a video when she won Miss Delaware and it didn’t look like a happy cry, it was more ‘a punch in the gut’ type of crying ... She started crying like that!” Henrie said. “Thank God I had seen that video, otherwise I would have thought she was saying no.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
