Maggie Q has opened up about her new engagement to her Stalker co-star Dylan McDermott, revealing his proposal was far from traditional.
The couple, which was first romantically linked in September, made its red carpet debut at the Golden Globe Awards in January, when she showed off a huge diamond on her ring finger, sparking reports suggesting the pair was set to wed.
Maggie Q has now confirmed the exciting news, telling Eonline.com, “I don’t know if he (McDermott) wants me to go into the details on how he proposed, but I’ll tell you this much – he more told me that we were gonna be married, which I think is so funny. Because he says, ‘You can’t ask Maggie because you can’t take the risk of Maggie saying no.’
“It felt very peaceful. You know when your spirit, your physiology, is at peace when you think about a life with somebody. I think that’s most important.”
The stars are now in the process of planning their big day, but the bride-to-be confesses she is taking a back seat to all of the preparations.
She explains, “I was never the person who was going to get married. It’s all my wonderful friends who have experience in this, they kinda take over.
“My day, when it comes, is going to be a mish-mosh of the love of all my friends contributing from their experience and what they want on the day for me, because I’m really, really not a wedding person. I’m surrounded by so much love and so many people who care about us in such a real way and they’re kinda helping guide me through it.”
The marriage will be Maggie’s first and McDermott’s second – he was previously married to actress Shiva Rose, the mother of his two daughters, from 1995 to 2009.
