Glee star Lauren Potter is set to marry her childhood friend Timothy Spear after he got down on one knee and proposed to her.
Lauren, 26, met Timothy Spear after their parents took them to a children’s centre for infant stimulation while growing up. (Both have Down syndrome). They became best friends and then later the relationship turned romantic. Timothy gave Lauren a ring after planning a romantic picnic in Laguna Beach, California.
“He picked out the ring, made payments on it, and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready,” Lauren’s mother, Robin Sinkhorn said. ‘Then they watched the sunset together.”
Lauren is best known for her role as cheerleader Becky Jackson in Glee. She also serves as an advocate for those with special needs through her work with various organizations.
