Appearing on Meyers’ show as a replacement for a canceled guest, Bryant said: “So, one night I came home from ‘Pitch’ at SNL. You ever heard of it?” she told Meyers, the former SNL head writer.
“So I pitched to Lin-Manuel Miranda and then when I got home I had my purse and our mail and all these boxes, and I walked to our door and our dog had a bowtie on. I was like, ‘My dog doesn’t wear a bowtie! Where is he going tonight?’ Basically, the second I shut the door, a man—who I discovered was Conner—frantically came around the corner and was just like, ‘Willyoumarryme?!’ No box. No ‘I love you.’
“Just a man in full terror standing very far from a dog in a bowtie, just holding a loose ring going, ‘Willyoumarryme?!’ I was like, ‘What?!’ I truly couldn’t comprehend what was happening, and I kept saying, ‘Is this a joke? Are you doing a joke?’ And then I said, ‘Of course I’ll marry you. I love you.’ And it was really nice.”
O’Malley asked him, “Why did you do this?”
“He was like, ‘Well, you always said that you wanted it to happen in our house if it ever happened.’ I was like, ‘That’s true; I wanted it to be private.’ He was like, ‘But I also knew you probably wanted to be wearing a bra and have makeup on, so I knew I had to do it after you just got home from work — otherwise it would never be another moment.'”
E! Online said Bryant did not disclose the wedding date.
