Food Network Star Anne Burrell Is Engaged To Stuart Claxton
Longtime Food Network star Anne Burrell, 50, confirmed on Instagram yesterday that she got engaged to her boyfriend over two years old. Stuart Claxton, 48, proposed to the chef in Cazenovia, NY, where they self-isolate with his family, she said PEOPLE.
Although the Insta ad did not provide too much information other than the joy and happiness of it all, Anne told the magazine that it was a beautiful and understated proposition:
My mom and Stuart got together and made a plan where he and I were going to have a date night. She has set up a nice table in her apartment and we have just planned a dinner for the two of us. We were having a good time, and Stuart then started to say, “Oh, it’s a good song to put on a playlist for our wedding reception.” And I say to myself “OK, of course. But why are we talking about it now?
A “weeping” conversation about the family ensued and “then Stuart [pulled] a ring in the pocket of her pants, “she continued. She also noted that they had no immediate plans for marriage due to the current pandemic, but that they were content to hold back for now: “We bask in the joy of this because that is all we can do for the foreseeable future. That said, Claxton explained that he was very happy to have picked up the ring before the pair began quarantining.
For those who do not know the history of couples, they have been together since 2018 after meeting on the Bumble dating app.
