Pals, it’s been quite the year for queer Jewish celebrity engagements.
In June, Beanie Feldstein revealed via Instagram post that she had gotten engaged to longtime girlfriend Bonnie Chance Roberts. Then, in August, “Broad City” and “A League of Their Own” star Abbi Jacobson confirmed to People Magazine that she was engaged to girlfriend Jodi Balfour.
And now, Jewish actor Ben Platt announced that he and Nice Jewish Boyfriend Noah Galvin are also engaged!!!
In an Instagram post from today, captioned “he agreed to hang out forever 💕,” Ben shared photos of what appears to be the moment he proposed to Noah at Brooklyn’s trendiest Israeli restaurant, Laser Wolf. Somewhat reminiscent of BFF Beanie’s engagement, Ben and Noah are surrounded by a beautiful arrangement of flowers and candles — though it’s the pair that seems to be glowing the brightest. (Also, one has to wonder if Queen Bean was present for the big moment, as Ben was present for hers!)
In what is the meet cute to end all meet cutes, Ben and Noah met while working on “Dear Evan Hansen” on Broadway and started dating in 2020.
So, mazel tov, mazel tov, mazel tov to Noah and Ben. We absolutely cannot wait to see you both say “I do” for forever under the chuppah.
And PSA: if any other queer Jewish celebrity couples are planning on getting engaged this year, please give me a heads-up, because this gay Jew’s heart simply cannot withstand any more sweetness.
