Soon the relationship escalated and a year into the relationship Anna and Mike moved in together in Beverly Hills.
Tying the Knot
After four years of dating, Mike proposed to Anna in 2017 during a trip to New Paris. He popped the question on a rainy evening in Paris with self-written vows;
“I vow to always be by your side to protect you, to always give you the first sip of my coffee. I promise to always love you, hold you, kiss you and be with you forever – and I vow the rain will go away! I vow we’ll be together forever. I love you.”
Anna said yes and they celebrated with their families and friends. They got married in December 2018 in a beautiful ceremony at Mudbrick Vineyard on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Anna wore a gorgeous silk fishtail gown and Mike looked handsome in a navy suit. They exchanged vows in front of their loved ones and sealed their union with a kiss.

“He’s here. What an incredible few days. I’m so grateful for the amazing team at UCLA for helping my boy arrive safely, my amazing husband who was the best birth partner, our gorgeous friend Amy for taking such wonderful care of our beautiful girl and everyone who has sent their love to us. Ohhh we are feeling so blessed.”
