Admitting that the pandemic had also made it easier for them to take their time in the early stages of their romance, she added: "I was grateful for that because it allowed us to really take our time and it was really awesome."

Brian also opened up about their first date: "On our first date, we just completely lost track of time and the same thing happened the next time. It became something noticeably different from anything I'd ever experienced before."

She added: "How funny would it be if I actually found the love of my life during a pandemic?"
