"He picked out the ring, made payments on it, and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready," Robin Sinkhorn, Lauren's mom, told People magazine.

The couple, who were both born with Down Syndrome, have known each other since they were infants. "We've kept in touch over the years... When Lauren ended a relationship, Timothy immediately asked her out and they have been together since," Robin shared.
In addition to her acting gigs, Lauren serves as an advocate for individuals with special needs, and was involved with President Obama's Committee For People with Intellectual Disabilities.
Congrats to the happy duo!
