Congrats to GIRLS star Allison Williams! The onscreen Marnie is engaged to her longtime love, Ricky Van Veen. Learn all about the other half of this toothsome twosome who met when Williams was filming the pilot for GIRLS in 2011! (And just check out that bling!)
Ricky Van Veen has probably made you laugh!
Williams' beau is the co-founder of CollegeHumor.com. We bet you have at least one of his works bookmarked! Van Veen also has a hand in founding Vimeo and is rumored to be worth a cool $25 million.
He's sort of a foodie — by association.
Van Veen is a founder of Notional, which produces Food Network shows like Chopped.
He keeps his friends and business associates close.
Van Veen's College Humor co-founders, Josh Abramson and Jakob Lodwick, grew up in Timonium, Maryland with him.
Van Veen sassed Williams on an episode of GIRLS!
Remember when Williams' Marnie performed a cabaret-style cover of Kanye West's "Stronger" at an app launch party? Van Veen was shown rolling his eyes during her performance, creating two inside jokes: One, that he actually is madly in love with her in real life, and two, that start ups are lame ... when he's pretty much the king of them.
Williams' dad, Brian Williams, approves.
When Larry King asked Williams if her news anchor father gave Van Veen a thumbs up, Williams got sheepishly cute and giggled, "He really likes him." Aw!
