“The love of my life surprised the crap out of me and asked me to marry him in his childhood bedroom (not planned, I’m really hard to surprise).
“We got to spend the rest of the weekend hanging out on the lake with both of our families and it was absolutely wonderful. I’m over the [moon] happy,” she wrote and added the hashtags, “#gettinghitched #heputaringonit #imgonnabeaparker #evenlambsgetmarried.”
Speaking to MEA Worldwide, Skovbye revealed she was fascinated by the ‘wild story’ of Betty and Dan Broderick.
In the series, Skovbye plays a young Betty Broderick who meets a handsome Dan Broderick at college.
The pair soon get married and have kids together, with Betty providing for the entire family and helping pay for Dan’s law school fees.
Skovbye said: “[I was] immediately very fascinated by this wild story and wanted to know everything!”
She went on to describe the failure of Betty and Dan’s marriage as “an unfortunate and tragic story.”
Skovbye explained: “It’s really important to remember there are two sides to every story.
“Both Dan and Betty went down some very dark paths and they both did horrible things that eventually ended in tragedy.
“There is so much information out there about this story so I did as much research as I could but there really isn’t much on their early years, the years where there was still hope for them.
“I felt like it was really important to show some of the love and sacrifice from the early years, which I think was really well told in the scripts.”
