Big congratulations are in order for Emmy Rossum! The ‘Shameless’ star is engaged to her boyfriend of two years, ‘Mr. Robot’ creator, Sam Esmail, according to reports. We’re beyond happy for this amazing couple!
Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Emmy Rossum, 28, and Sam Esmail, 37! After two years of dating, the Mr. Robot creator popped the big question to the Shameless actress over the weekend of Aug. 29. This couple is just too cute together, and it’s so exciting they’re going to be spending the rest of their lives together!
News of Emmy and Sam’s engagement was confirmed to E! News on Aug. 31. The couple began dating after meeting on set when he directed her in the 2014 film, Comet, alongside Justin Long. Emmy and Sam actually made their debut as a couple in June 2014, at the film’s premiere! Throughout the time they’ve been dating, Emmy and Sam have flaunted their love on Instagram and have become the definition of relationship goals. Though they sparked engagement rumors in Dec. 2014 after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring, we’re glad to know that this time, they really are headed down the aisle!
Emmy is the first to admit her husband-to-be has his quirks. “He’s a bit of a nerd,” she said of Sam during an interview on Live! With Kelly & Michael in Oct. 2014. “He doesn’t know chivalry too well, so we have to bust his chops a little bit and tell him every time a woman stood up and went to the restroom, he had to stand up.” Luckily, it sounds like he’s just Emmy’s type though! Emmy told Cosmopolitan in 2014 about what kind of man she is attracted to. “I don’t gravitate to the jock; it’s the nerdy guy in the corner,” she said. “Writers are sexy.”
Emmy was previously married to Justin Siegel from 2008 to 2010.
