Jennifer Newman & Grant Imahara
Jennifer had been dating long-term partner Grant for years. Since both are costume and prop designers, they bonded rather quickly. Newman has been Grant’s girlfriend for a long time. However, he proposed to her in 2016, at Clifton’s Cafeteria in downtown L.A. In a style typical to Grant, he pulled off a gutsy move by inviting 250 guests who thought they were there for Jennifer’s birthday party.
He proposed with a vintage 1.56-carat sparkler Grant, found at an antique dealer’s store in San Francisco. Jennifer reportedly said to TMZ, “F*** yeah!” to the $20,000 ring. Grant celebrated the engagement on Twitter with a simple message, which you can see below.
Jennifer, on the other hand, made a lengthier post about 2016 and how Grant impacted her life, while also looking forward to the future. See her post here.
