Lena Hall is married to her fiance turned husband, Jonathan Stein since 2019. The couple stumbled across each other through a dating app that was suggested to Hall by her friend Josh Groban. They first met at the Bowery Hotel Lobby and kissed for the first time in Washington Square Park.
The lovebirds gradually fell for each other and eventually turned into a full-fledged couple. On Christmas Eve in 2018, the duo got engaged in the most romantic manner. Trendy Bride wrote:
On Christmas Eve in Bermuda, on a dock overlooking the sunset, Jonathan got down on one knee and proposed. It was the perfect place to pop the question as it was one of their most visited spots in Bermuda.
Jonathan presented Lena with a gorgeous three and a quarter carat vintage 1920’s diamond ring. Lena and Jonathan are planning on enjoying a long engagement and have yet to set a date for later next year.
Lena took to social media to break the delightful news to her fans.
