Grant Gustin and Andrea La Thoma's love story: A look at 'Flash' star's pregnancy reveal and botched proposal
For a while and even now, many believe that 'Flash' actor Grant Gustin is with his onscreen partner Candice Patton, who played Iris West to Gustin's Flash on the show, because of their brilliant chemistry. However, truth is that the actor is married to Andrea La Thoma – a fitness coach and a diet enthusiast. The two of them have kept their private life under wraps for quite a few years but here is a closer look at their lovely relationship.
How Grant Gustin fell in love with Andrea La Thoma and proposed?
After dating for a year, Gustin had planned on proposing to La Thoma in Costa Rica where he was set to shoot for a film. However, the film kept getting delayed and so he had decided to back out of the project to be able to continue shooting for 'The Flash'. So, he also had to give up on the original plan and instead, he decided to propose to her when the two of them were together on a run on the beach.
About the proposal that did take place, Gustin revealed to Conan Brien, "We worked out on the beach, I forgot the [engagement] ring was in my backpack. When we were sitting on the beach afterward, I thought she saw it. It turns out she hadn’t [seen the ring]." He had even believed that he had botched it up for this very reason.
He also thought that the proposal could have gone a lot better because La Thoma had initially believed that the proposal was a joke. He explained, "It was such an impromptu proposal and random moment, she thought I was joking, actually, when I proposed. It was obviously not a very good proposal. She laughed at first. But then she said 'yes'."
Did Grant Gustin and Andrea La Thoma have two wedding ceremonies?
Gustin and La Thoma had two wedding ceremonies. The first one took place in Sabah, Malaysia, which is where La Thoma is from. It is believed that this ceremony saw the presence of La Thoma's ancestors, close friends and relatives. It was even reported that La Thoma and Gustin had tied the knot in secret, which Gustin clarified was not the truth in an Instagram post.
He wrote, "I did want to clear something up before the internet ran with it. It was incorrectly reported, without our permission that LA and I had a private wedding while we were here, but that’s not quite the truth. While we did have a beautiful, symbolic Kadazan ceremony to honor LA’s ancestors, we still won’t tie the knot until next year."
So when exactly did they get married? The two of them tied the knot at The Valentine in downtown Los Angeles on 15th December 2018. A source quoted by E! said, "They were surrounded by their family and close friends, and it was a beautiful ceremony and an unforgettable day.”
