Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr, ONE LIFE TO LIVE/GH; ex-Kiki, GH) is engaged to her longtime love, Taylor Crousore, she announced on Instagram. “We are ENGAGED!!! ❤️✨,” she posted herself. “On Saturday July 15, 2023 (MY NEW ‘BEST DAY’ 🙌), Taylor took me to the place where we had our first date and she asked me to MARRY HIM! Two years ago, on July 18, 2021, Taylor and I met for the first time ON THIS DOCK after falling in love virtually for a month and a half prior. We were both super nervous, but SO hopeful that we’d be a great couple in person as we thought we’d made it through the 800+ videos we’d sent back and forth. What she didn’t know was how amazing the next two years with him would be. Taylor, you are everything I ever dreamed of and more! I feel like I’ve been with you my whole life, and I can hardly remember the life before you. When I think I can’t love you anymore, somehow I feel more dizzy EVERY DAY that I have the honor of being yours. Thank you for making me feel the MOST special, loved and cared for. I’ll go into the details of our proposal in another post because he created a WHOLE NIGHT! It was PERFECT 😭 The night was full of surprises, family, friends, romance and so much LOVE ❤️😭 I have never cried so many happy tears in one night 🙌 @crousore You make all my dreams come true and I can’t wait to spend forever with you! ❤️❤️❤️❤️” Alderson’s friends in the soap opera community were quick to respond with messages of support. “Awww this is so sweet and so cute!!! Congratulations beautiful!!!!” wrote Chrishell Stause (ex-Jordan, DAYS et al). “This is amazing!!!! Congrats Mom!!!” posted Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, Y&R). Brittany Underwood (ex-Langston, OLTL) rejoiced: “I couldn’t be happier that my best friend is getting married to someone who is more than perfect for her and will take the best possible care of her. She’s in such good hands, wow, I’m crying just thinking about it. What an epic weekend. I love you both so much. Can’t wait for this wedding!!!” Congratulations to the happy couple!
