Criss, 30, and Swier, 32, started dating before he rose to prominence acting opposite Chris Colfer as Blaine Anderson on Glee between 2010 and 2015. "Oh yeah, we've been together a long time," he said on the The Roz & Mocha Show on KiSS 92.5 in 2013. "I didn't know I was going to be on TV when we started dating."
2018 is certainly off to an exciting start for Criss. In addition to his engagement news, the actor is currently starring as Andrew Cunanan, the man who murdered fashion designer Gianni Versace, on Ryan Murphy's crime anthology series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. The acclaimed FX series' second season premiered earlier this week to strong ratings and reviews.
In addition to acting, Criss is also a recording artist, having released his most recent EP, Homework, in December 2017. After co-creating the popular parody theatre company Team StarKid with friends at the University of Michigan in 2009, he went on to star on Broadway in the musicals How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hedwig and the Angry Inch.Ranking the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards best to worst dressed stars
