It seems Girls star Allison Williams got engaged to Ricky Van Veen (whose awesome name I have already sung the praises of). Which one is Allison Williams? She plays Marnie on the celebrated HBO show.
So wait? Does this mean she gets to change her name to Allison Van Veen? Or will it just be Allison Veen? I would DEMAND the whole Van Veen if I were her. I don’t know how last name switching goes, but if I were her, I would advocate for the entire name. The two have been dating seriously for three years, and it just seemed this was the next step in the process of their picture perfect courtship. There is more details about this over at the LA Times.
Truth is, I think it would be daunting to marry an “IT” girl. It takes a very confident man to lock down a woman who half the world is drawn to. In the same breath, with his keen business savvy (and cool last name) and her rising star right now, looks like they are forming power couple status. Congrats to the pair, and the best of luck in their marriage.
