'Boy Meets World' Star Rider Strong is Getting Married This Weekend

Getty ImagesWe all remember Rider Strong as a high school kid who loved to hassle Mr. Feeney, but the guy who played Shawn Hunter is actually all grown up and tying the knot. Strong confirmed to People that he's getting married to longtime love Alexandra Barreto in Oregon Sunday.

"I'm incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime," the 33-year-old actor said.

These two met as co-stars on a short-lived WB show called Pepper Dennis back in 2006. They began dating around then and Strong popped the question just before the holidays last year. He did so under the redwood trees at his childhood home, in the pouring rain. Aww — romance! 

"I spent weeks making the ring in secret," he said. "I carved the ring out of wax, cast it in white gold and had my dad make a wooden ring box for me. My dad made my mom's ring, so I was following in his footsteps."
