According to UsWeekly, the ring has special meaning. It's the same diamond ring Burke's late father, Steve Burke, gave to her mother, Sherri Burke. It was reset with more diamonds. Sherri Burke and Lawrence's mother, Donna, helped with the ring.

Burke and Lawrence, known for roles in "Boy Meets World" and "Brotherly Love," initially dated for a year in 2007 before breaking up in 2008. They rekindled their romance in 2017.

“When we first dated, we were both young and immature, and I was so new to this world,” Burke said of their first break up. “Now we are both adults and feel balanced.”

This will be the first marriage for Lawrence and Burke.
