GLEE Star Lauren Potter’s Engagement Has Been Called Off
Glee actress Lauren Potter - best known to fans as one of Sue’s cheerleaders, Becky Jackson - has announced that her engagement to childhood sweetheart Timothy Spear has ended.
The 26-year-old, who accepted a promise ring from her childhood friend-turned-boyfriend in Laguna Beach in July last year, said that he was uncomfortable with the publicity that her fame brought.
"After we got married I wanted to wake up and see him make breakfast for me. I loved him so much," she said.
Cue hearts breaking EVERYWHERE.
Timothy popped the question after planning a romantic picnic in Laguna overlooking the ocean, Potter's mom Robin Sinkhorn told PEOPLE at the time.
"He picked out the ring, made payments on it, and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready," Robin says. "Then they watched the sunset together."
The couple's families have known each other since they were babies.
In addition to her work on Glee from 2009-15, Lauren has also been an advocate for individuals with special needs. She previously served on President Obama's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities and has traveled extensively, giving speeches that promote inclusion.
