Doyle is getting hitched! Gilmore Girls’ Danny Strong is engaged to his girlfriend, Caitlin Mehner.

Strong, 42, revealed the news via Instagram on Thursday, December 29. “3 and a half years ago I saw the cutest girl I’d ever seen and got up the nerve to talk to her. She gave me her phone number but it was missing a digit. I was convinced she had to have made a mistake (delusional?) so I tracked her down and asked her out,” he captioned a pic of his bride-to-be. “Then last night I got up the nerve to ask her to marry me and she said yes! The moral of the story is never be deterred by a missing digit. Love you @mehns #yes.”
