Andrea initially laughed at Gustin’s proposal
After about a year of dating, Gustin was ready to pop the question to Andrea. He was very much in love with her and, he set Costa Rica as the stage for the marriage proposal. Gustin was supposed to appear on a movie set in Costa Rica.
However, the movie kept on getting pushed to later dates until it was time for Gustin to continue filming The Flash. His plan to propose to Andrea in Costa Rica was, therefore, ruined. He couldn’t go to Costa Rica due to delays in the movie’s production.
Gustin still wanted to go through with the proposal. He decided that he would propose to Andrea while the couple worked out at the beach. It was supposed to be a surprise proposal, but Gustin nearly ruined it. He placed the ring in the workout bag that he and Andrea both used.
He only realized his mistake when they were at the beach and, he was ready to propose. The proposal had encountered many hurdles, but he was still going through with it. In the course of a workout routine, Andrea momentarily turned away from Gustin.
Gustin took this opportunity to go down on one knee. Andrea turned back to see a large diamond ring staring at her in the face. Gustin didn’t expect the reaction that he got from Andrea. Andrea laughed at the proposal. Although he doesn’t say it, Gustin must have been disappointed.
Luckily for him, after laughing, Andrea said yes. The couple shared their happy moment on Instagram. They left the caption blank, but the ring was on full display.
Even though it was full of mishaps, Gustin doesn’t shy away from telling the story of his proposal. Gustin admits that it wasn’t the flawless proposal that he wanted it to be. He claims that his greatest disappointment was that the Costa Rica proposal didn’t work out. It was set to be much more romantic in Costa Rica. Ultimately, he got his heart’s desire, which was Andrea’s hand in marriage.
