Congratulations are in order for former “Boy Meets World” star Rider Strong, who is engaged to long-time girlfriend Alexandra Barreto, E! News confirms.
The couple met while working on the short-lived series “Pepper Dennis.” Rider reportedly popped the question on December 26 with a ring he made himself!
Rider, however, isn’t the only former “Boy Meets World” star to become affianced of late. Danielle Fishel announced on her Tumblr earlier this month that in addition to graduating college, she became engaged to her boyfriend, whom she met while tutoring. (Um, adorable!)
As to whether we’ll see an on-screen reunion for Rider, Danielle and fellow cast mate Ben Savage on the Disney Channel spin-off “Girl Meets World,” that remains to be seen.
“I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story. At this point, I have no official involvement in ’Girl Meets World,'” Rider wrote on his blog back in November. “There might be a chance to see some of the ’BMW’ cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. But ’Girl Meets World’ will be, and I think it should be, its own show. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters. It’s the next generation.”
