It’s incredible to see Danielle embarking on this new stage of life, especially considering just a few years ago, the 29-year-old expressed her frustrations with dating.

“My dating game is slow as of now,” the Broadway star told Page Six back in 2017.  “I know that I am on TV, and you think that it would be better, but I do not know what I am putting off. I am still single.”

But the tides quickly changed for the actress. Danielle debuted her beau on Instagram last Valentine’s Day, sharing a gorgeous photo of herself in a gown with her dapper boyfriend.
