September is proving to be quite a month for actress Susan Kelechi Watson. Her new film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and is already receiving awards buzz, the next season of This is Us premieres in two weeks, and before all of that she got engaged! She may be one half of everyone’s favorite TV couple – Beth and Randall Pearson – on This is Us, but soon she’ll be embarking on a real marriage with fellow actor Jaime Lincoln Smith.
The groom-to-be proposed with a gorgeous oval sapphire set with four prongs and a delicate band. Susan’s manicure was perfect for the occasion, as her almond shaped nails were in a neutral beige tone allowing the vibrant blue hue of the gemstone to truly pop. Eagle-eyed fans may recognize the backdrop of the ring picture as Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, notable for being the site of Julie Cooper and Caleb Nichol’s wedding on The OC. Will the picturesque chapel go on to host the nuptials of Susan and Jaime? The bride-to-be also wore a Christian Siriano gown to TIFF, so we can’t help but wonder if she’ll choose a wedding dress from the same designer.
