The openly gay actor who won the hearts of America as cute kid Jonathan Bower on the iconic Tony Danza led comedy is now ready to pledge his lifelong devotion to boyfriend Wil Tabares, Us Weekly is reporting.
Tabares popped the question on April 3 during a romantic trip to Palm Springs by playing a homemade video – featuring a ring – while they celebrated their one-year anniversary. “He made a video, and in the video held up the box [with the ring],” Pintauro told Us. “I looked up and he had it in his hand!”
“Wil is the best, and I couldn’t be happier to spend the rest of our lives together!” he gushed.
The 37-year-old former actor is a Las Vegas restaurant manager, while his husband-to-be is an entertainer and also works at the Cosmopolitan casino, however the happy couple hope to eventually leave Sin City.
“We live in a state, Nevada, that does not yet allow same-sex marriage,” said Pintauro, who came out as gay in 1997. “Our plan is to move to California once Prop 8 is overturned.”
