Some folks have assumed we had already done this, but truth be told we had other priorities in becoming a family. Now it feels right. I get to marry this beautiful man. I get to call him my husband and to be his wife and I am the luckiest.”
Likewise, the Ted Lasso actor featured his wife showing off her ring on his IG, and captioned the post, “The majestic @snoopshann, so rarely photographed in her natural habitat, captured here in the act of saying “yes.””
But this isn’t the first time, the lovebirds praised each other on their IG.
On Brendan’s 50th birthday, Shannon wrote on her IG, “He is bloody brilliant, insanely talented, always down to teach a game to someone who doesn’t know how to play or to evangelize on all things football and he is working his butt off to make beautiful things for us all to enjoy.”
She also added, “Getting to navigate this crazy world with him by my side is one helluva gift. Getting to watch him with our son, seeing their love, and knowing that our baby doesn’t even know how good he has it yet, is actually thrilling at times.”
