Ben Platt Announces Engagement to Noah Galvin: ‘He’s Agreed to Date Forever’


Ben Platt celebrated Thanksgiving this year by popping the question.

Netflix’s ‘The Politician’ star revealed on Instagram on Friday that he and longtime boyfriend Noah Galvin have gotten engaged.

“He agreed to date forever,” Platt wrote alongside a series of photos from the proposal, which took place at the Laser Wolf restaurant in Brooklyn, New York.

Galvin, a fellow actor and singer, echoed those sentiments on his Instagram account, noting, “I said yeehaw then cried for about 7 hours.”

One of the images shared by the pair shows a close-up of Galvin’s engagement ring, designed by Grace Lee and adorned with an emerald-cut diamond.

Galvin, whose credits include “Booksmart” and “The Real O’Neals,” first confirmed he was in a relationship with Platt in May 2020.

Interest in the couple’s romance has been bolstered by their shared professional history. In 2016, Platt originated the title role in Broadway’s “Dear Evan Hansen,” winning a Tony and a Grammy Award. When he left the hit musical in 2017, he was replaced by Galvin.

Appearing on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in 2021, Platt explained that he and Galvin had been “friends for five years” and then started dating shortly before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their shared time in self-isolation, he noted, only made their relationship stronger.

In a separate interview with Out magazine the same year, Platt praised Galvin for having “a truly unique ability to help me…be present where I am and to make the day-to-day life too wonderful for me. not wanting to be in the field for that.

Earlier this month, Platt returned to the New York stage in a production of the musical “Parade”, to rave reviews. He can currently be seen in the Amazon Prime comedy “People We Hate at Marriage,” which also stars Kristen Bell and Allison Janney.

He and Galvin are set to appear in the upcoming movie “Theater Camp,” a musical they also co-wrote.
