Tovey confirmed the news saying Brockman was the one to propose and it took hm by surprise. He adds, “Completely unexpected but very very happy and looking forward to having a proper party to celebrate when back in London.”
The History Boys and Being Human actor has been dating Brockman for some time, although he’s been rather discreet about the relationship while never hiding it. Brockman is a rugby player with the Kings Cross Steelers, and as many sites hve been keen to point out, he also has a bit of an x-rated past as ‘Ryan Stack’ over at Randy Blue.
As the engagement came out of the blue, there’s no news on when they might get married. But right now Tovey says that he’s, “Over the moon.”
