“She’s heaven,” Appleby tells the site. “I’m beyond thrilled.”
This has been a big year for the former “Rosewell” star. She’s has recurring roles in both “Girls” and “Chicago Fire” and her restaurant-owning boyfriend Jon Shook proposed. She tells Us that Shook has been a dream throughout her pregnancy.
“When you see this guy going to all the doctor’s appointments with you, and you tell him you’re feeling a certain way, and two minutes later he’s looked it up on the internet to tell you that it’s normal, you realize that you’re really starting a family with somebody,” she says. “There’s no way to look at that person and not be more in love.”
As for their wedding plans, Appleby says, “We’re planning on doing a big wedding after the baby is born. … Shiri Shook has a nice ring to it!”
