Christina Perri and Paul Costabile, an entertainment reporter, started dating in January of last year. They had met for the first time in 2013, for an interview, a moment that Costabile used in his own marriage announcement on social media.

“4 years ago today I met my dream girl in this room”, he began the caption of a photo of them in front of a green screen (commonly used in television or movie production). “4 years later today I married my dream girl and best friend. Pretty sure I’m the proudest I’ve EVER been to be able to call the most bellissima person + woman I’ve ever known now my wife!!!”, he added. “Whoa. I thank God for the gift of her, our relationship, our bambino on the way, our family’s love and support and this unforgettable year. And for friends and fam wondering… invites to an official shindig coming soon…now I’m going to go scream this news on rooftops across this town because I AM that guy.”


The two got engaged in June of this year.
