Indeed life, and in this case love, goes on despite the pandemic.
Openly gay RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Ross Mathews has announced his engagement to Dr. Wellington Garcia during this Tuesday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show.
“I’m going to tell you something that nobody knows. About a year ago I met somebody who just changed my life totally, and his name’s Dr. Wellington García,” Mathews said to host Drew Barrymore and the viewers. “He’s an educator and he’s hilarious and he’s the smartest person I’ve ever met.”
He said, as he proceeded to show off his ring, “And you know how Beyoncé says, ‘If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it?’ Well, I did!”
“I’m so happy for you!” Barrymore screamed as the duo threw confetti and sipped champagne.
Further, Mathews shared that he and Dr. García had just started dating right before the pandemic, “and then we had to date through quarantine, you know, making those Zoom dates and then eventually traveling and being together and making it work.”
Mathews added, “I’ve been so private about this relationship, and it feels so weird because I tell you guys everything… so I’m so happy to be sharing this with all of you.”
The 41-year-old American TV personality also shared a photo on Instagram with his fiancé which he captioned:
Fiancé, you stay! 💍 I am so proud to announce that after over a year together – navigating a pandemic, quarantine and opposite coasts – the smartest, funniest and kindest man I’ve ever met said, ‘Yes!’ Dr. García, I love you. A lifetime of adventure awaits.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
