“Nico, your love has taught me how to love. You are my other half, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you,” the Survivor alum, 34, gushed all through the Saturday, April 2, awards rite in Los Angeles, according to Entertainment Weekly photos.
“He said yes. I’m the luckiest guy in the world,” Smith wrote by the use of Instagram. “Thank you to @glaad and @tiffanyandco for making it magical.”
The couple first showed their dating in June 2018 by the use of Twitter, with Smith writing, “I guess everybody knows about my hot little 25-year-old boyfriend now. Oh, haaayyy @nicosantos.”
Santos teased again: “Stop spreading lies! I am NOT, I repeat, NOT…25!”
The Crazy Rich Asians actor and the comic’s dating has endured to warmth up social media over the years.
“I fell in love! About three years ago at the GLAAD Awards, I met my boyfriend, actor Nico Santos,” Smith advised EW in March 2021. “We just bought a house and are mired in the domestic bliss of choosing paint colors, figuring out where exactly that draft is coming from, and replacing appliances that were just fine during the inspections!”
Before the duo met, Smith made headlines after he was once outed as transgender all through an April 2017 episode of Survivor: Game Changers.
“We’d never seen a trans story responded to with such overwhelming outrage toward the wrongdoer and sympathy toward the wronged,” Smith wrote in a The Hollywood Reporter column after his removal from the CBS pageant, noting his optimism in regards to the long run. “Typically, trans victims of crimes far worse than what I endured are ridiculed and the perpetrators let off scot-free.”
He endured: “I remain at a loss to fully explain the reaction, but I am grateful and humbled. I am optimistic that this moment — both the example set by Survivor and ‘The Episode’s’ response — will serve as a model for how trans people will be treated by the media in the future.” To the trans one who enters the highlight subsequent, I am hoping you get it as just right as I did. To the individual after, I am hoping you might be met with utter indifference.”
