The couple have been together for almost a year and live in Beachwood Canyon in LA. Elisabeth revealed they plan to tie the knot this winter.

Peter popped the question on the rooftop of their hotel during a romantic getaway to Santa Barbara. "We drove up to Santa Barbara for the night and the ruse was just a quick get-away," he told People.

"Of course, I brought the ring and champagne. We went to the rooftop of the hotel, where the views were beautiful, and I played it cool while some people left the area. Then, when I couldn't take it anymore, I dropped down on one knee."

The couple admitted they had an "instant connection" when they first met four years ago, but as Elisabeth was in a relationship at the time, they became nothing more than friends.

It wasn't until the pandemic hit that their friendship turned romantic. "We met through a very close mutual friend and had an instant connection and a beautiful strong bond," Elisabeth added to the publication.

"Thanks to COVID slowing us down, we had the opportunity to recognize and acknowledge that the friendship between us had become much more," she added.
