Love is definitely in the air this summer. Riverdale’s Vanessa Morgan is engaged to Michael Kopech and the video is breathtaking. Morgan is best known for playing the badass and glamorous Toni Topaz on the hit CW series. She got engaged to the White Sox pitcher this week, in the most romantic way possible.
Kopech popped the question during a romantic getaway to the picturesque Mooney Falls in Arizona. Lucky for us, the proposal was recorded, and Kopech shared the video on Instagram. The footage shows Morgan and Kopech standing in front of a waterfall on a beautiful day. Though nothing can be heard over the sound of rushing water, Morgan’s reaction to Kopech’s proposal is quite clear. A few seconds into the video, he gets down on one knee, and Morgan brings a hand to her face in surprise. A few seconds after that, Kopech rises and the two embrace in a romantic kiss.
But wait, it gets better. Kopech captioned the Instagram video with a tear-jerking love letter to Morgan. “So I’ll start with the obvious: I love you,” he wrote. “I love you intensely, passionately, & also at times, recklessly.”
So romantic, right? There’s more: “You’ve loved me for ME from day one. Completely unselfishly. You’re undeniably the spark that reignited my fire. You’re deserving of much more than just this moment but this one just felt particularly magical.”

So I’ll start with the obvious: I love you. I love you intensely, passionately, & also at times, recklessly. I make decisions on the spur of the moment (i mean look at how our relationship has gone up to this point). I’m a very non traditional type of person and I know I’ve found my match in you when it comes to that especially. Our relationship probably doesn’t make sense to many people for a sh*t ton of reasons, but we’re not doing it for them. We know this is forever. Why would we wait? lol. You literally stayed by my side when I felt I had lost my mind. You stayed by my side for these seemingly random changes of my life. You stayed when often times I didn’t deserve it. You’ve loved me for ME from day one. Completely unselfishly. You’re undeniably the spark that reignited my fire. You’re deserving of much more than just this moment but this one just felt particularly magical. I’m incredibly humbled by the love that you give and I only hope I can portray a fraction of the love and light that you carry with you. I’ll never have enough words to tell you how much I love you, but I promise to always show you. But for now, I’ll finish this how I started: I love you. SO MUCH. @vanessamorgan
