What did Justin Long and Kate Bosworth say about their engagement?
The description of the podcast episode reads, "Kate Bosworth and Justin sit down for an intimate conversation about their love story: how they became fast friends while working on a film together, how their friendship built on trust and honesty blossomed into something more, and how Justin popped the question after asking for her dad's blessing."
"I did have a special thing planned around [Kate's] birthday and about a month before that, life, like we were talking about, things change, and sometimes they change pretty drastically without any warnings. It was a moment where it just felt so organic and it felt connected to something very, very deeply, profoundly personal that we were going through, like, a real-life change, and so it came out in a very organic way," said Long.
The couple further talked about how they underwent therapy after a "really hard" phase in their lives and how it helped them through their relationship. "I remember waking up not so many mornings after that therapy session and I looked at Justin and I said... I smiled at you, and I said, 'What do you need?' And he, like, really looked at me and he said, 'To spend my life with you.' And I smiled and I said, 'Well, yeah, you have that. Oh my gosh, you have that,' and he said, 'No, I mean I really want to spend my life with you.'"
Long revealed that the proposal "was the easiest" and "the words just came out like so naturally." He added, "I know with absolute certainty and I knew early on that I will always love you."

"These things are funny to announce. How to do this right? He's going the distance? I've got a Blue Crush? He's just THAT into me? I've won a date with…??? Ok you get it!
