Chris Kirkpatrick Pops the Question!
Less than a week after Justin Timberlake said “I do!,” a third *NSYNC member has taken the plunge. Chris Kirkpatrick is no longer an eligible bachelor as he proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Karly Skladany over the weekend!
While there is no official word, news broke on his Facebook page last night as many friends and family wished him and his girlfriend a hearty congratulations!
Congratulations from Still *NSYNC! Wishing the happy couple a long and blessed marriage and stress-free wedding planning!
UPDATE: Lance and Joey mentioned Chris’ engagement on Lance’s radio show on Wednesday. They also confirmed that the engagement took place in Italy though Chris was not there for Justin’s wedding.
People magazine also has a story online detailing the proposal which Chris described as unplanned.
“We had a hotel room at the Isle of Capri, overlooking the Mediterranean,” he told the magazine. “It was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. And it hit me: I wanted to propose to Karly. So I ran to a jewelry store, found the perfect ring and bought it.”
After calling to ask for her father’s blessing, Chris proposed by putting the ring in her champagne glass. He told People that Karly’s first response was, “It’s about time!”
