Eric Christian Olsen proposed to his wife while they were on vacation

During an interview with the hosts of The Talk, Olsen said he wanted to surprise his wife, Sarah Wright, with a proposal. She was expecting him to propose at some point, so he wanted to make sure she was surprised. He said he accomplished this by pretending he wasn’t sure whether he wanted to get married. He later took her on a special trip to Mexico.

“We spent this perfect day swimming in the ocean, getting massages, the perfect day,” Olsen said.

After they had a meal on the beach, Olsen said he put a camera on a timer and ran up to take a picture with Wright. Once the shutters opened, he made this statement to her:

Nobody makes me laugh more. Nobody makes me happier. Nobody is going to be a better mother. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?

During a different interview, one of the hosts on The Talk commented on how great the energy is between Renée Felice Smith and Barrett Foa.

“It’s pretty natural. We’re both goofballs,” Foa said. And Smith added: “We’re just buddies.”

Foa went into further detail about their entertaining relationship.

“We basically just entertain each other and then the crew just gets to watch and laugh with us or at us,” he said. “We have dance contests, and we have singing contests.”

Smith added that they perform karaoke at the wrap parties and “make fools of themselves.”

Renée Felice Smith and Barrett Foa brought excitement to Eric Christian Olsen’s wedding

Smith and Foa also had a great time at Olsen’s 2012 wedding. They told former The Talk host Sarah Gilbert they got on the dance floor when no one else was dancing and had a ball.

At the wedding, the energy level was a bit low, so Foa and Smith decided to turn things up a notch.

“We parted the seas and just kind of like took over, and there was like a hoedown on the dancefloor,” Smith said. “It was completely synchronized but unrehearsed. So we tapped into each other’s psyches, and our thoughts were dancing.”

Foa jumped in, adding, “Basically we were drunk.”
