I love this man, and I love sharing my life with them. I can’t wait for what’s to come.”

The Good Luck ChuckStar, for his part acknowledged the engagement via Twitter on Tuesday, writing: “Feeling the best I’ve ever felt.”

The couple began dating in 2017 after Cook, a Massachusetts native, discovered that the musician was also from Massachusetts. Cook explained that Cook and the musician met at a game night at his house in 2017. After maintaining a friendship “for a while,” the duo soon “fell in like with each [other] and then upgraded to love,” the Mystery Men star said during an Instagram Q&A in August 2018.

When asked for advice about dating with a big age difference, Cook joked, “The only thing you have to do is plan that your deaths will be somewhat far apart.”

An insider only told 2019 Us WeeklyThe Employee of the MonthTaylor was his life and soulmate. “Dane is so in love with Kelsi,” the source explained. “He treats her as though she’s his wife even though he’s said he’ll never get married.”

The insider said that Cook’s approach to Taylor’s romance was different from his previous relationships. “This is definitely the most serious relationship he’s had so far,” the source said at the time. “He doesn’t talk to any other women anymore and before her he used to have lots of one-night stands.”

Taylor wrote a glowing Instagram post about her ex-boyfriend earlier this year to mark their fifth anniversary. “5 YEARS, BABY! Boyfriend, bestie, cheerleader, bringer of happiness, that’s my @danecook,” she wrote in May. “Whether it’s a deep convo or a tv-binging night, I love every second with you.
