Billy Flynn's alter ego, Chad DiMera may be having a helluva lot a trouble in his love life on 'Days of Our Lives' but in reality it's nothing like that. Flynn met the woman who would then become his life-long partner, Gina Comparetto in 2014. The couple became engaged on May 29, 2015 when Flynn asked her to marry him in Minnesota. It was on October 1, 2016 that the happy couple made things official as they took their vows and began their forever journey.
So, what was life like for them before the big moment? In an interview with Michael Fairman, Flynn reflects on the first time he met Gina. He shared that his first thoughts was that he would like to go out with her but it took him 2 years to actually ask her out. It was on her birthday that Flynn asked her out and realized an instant connection, all his previous doubts of being in relationship was removed from his mind.
When it was time for their engagement, Flynn and Gina flew to Minnesota for her to meet his parents for the first time. As Flynn reflects on that day he highlights: "My best friend came in town for my birthday, and we picked him up from the airport, and we all went out, and we all had a bit much to drink. So the next day she was slightly hung-over, but we had made plans to go to the beach. Then we came home that night, and we got into this bickering match about the fact that she was giving me a birthday present, but she hadn’t wrapped it yet, because she hadn’t had time. I was like, “Baby, you said we were going to do this before my friends come over, because I don’t want to be opening presents around them, and I don’t want to be rude.” And she was like, “Well, I just didn’t’ have the time!” I thought, now is the time to propose! She was still in her sweats, her make-up was half done, and it was such a perfect moment. I was in the other room and I said, “I love our life.” She said, “Me, too.” I said, “Would you come out here for a minute?” I then got down on one knee and proposed! It was the exact moment it should have been. But the moment that got me was when she called her mom to tell her, and how emotional she was. It was such a beautiful thing to see."
Since then their romance has been filled with lots of merriment. It is highlighted on social media that part of what bonds this happy couple seems to be their senses of humor. Some of which you can check out below!
