“I was toying when to pop the question for a long time,” Jacinto explained, per Vulture. “I looked at the Janet/Jason relationship, and there’s a sentence that Jason says to Chidi about relationships and it hit me pretty hard. I thought it was a sign that I needed to do it, and a week later I popped the question.”

Jacinto, 32, said he ended up taking the “Warrior” actress, 29, to several locations that were special to their relationship. “I took her to places that really meant a lot to us,” he shared. “Where I first met her, where I first saw her, where we had our first date, and where we had our first dance class.”

“I had these canvas things written down with a message saying why the places were important to us. At every location I had her close her eyes, I’d hold up the canvas, and she would open her eyes. I took her through five different places, and at the last place I had our families waiting and I proposed,” Jacinto said.
