Rider Strong Gets Engaged, Continues Streak Of Great Boy Meets World News

Actors Alexandra Barreto and Rider Strong are engaged

It’s that time of year again, when all sorts of engagement and wedding news starts coming in as celebrities escape to warm, romantic getaways. The latest is the engagement of Boy Meets World alum Rider Strong to his longtime girlfriend Alexandra Barreto. According to E! Online, Rider proposed with a ring he created himself.

Strong and Barreto met on the short-lived 2006 WB comedy Pepper Dennis, in which he played a cameraman and she played the weather girl and nemesis of star Rebecca Romijn. They also had a super-cute bit together in this 2008 Web ad for Barack Obama.

We’ve all been waiting for a different kind of news from Rider — that he’d be joining the cast of Girl Meets World, the Disney Channel spinoff of the beloved ’90s show — but as of November, he said he had no “official” involvement in it. Hey, Alexandra, is there anything you can do to convince him otherwise?
