This week we were all surprised to find out that the couple referred to as simply O'Drew, by millions of adoring fans, made long standing rumors finally come true with the engagement. O'Drew, made up of former MSU Lady Bear stand out, Stephanie O'Donnell & Springfield Socialite, Andrew Albritton have been dating since a controversial surprise birthday party for O'Donnell back on September 4th of last year . The whirlwind romance, as many have described it, has been steadily progressing from an "uncomfortable flirtation, to the now heated passion of true love", said one observer, "when they first would come over to our house, they would talk and hang out...and occasionally you would see then make eye contact; just last week they dropped by, and you could feel the deep seated love and burning desire as they occasionally touched hands, or once they even were locked in a side embrace for like 2 1/2 seconds." says someone close to them (that would only speak on the condition of anonymity).
Friends have commented that they seem extremely fit for one another, and its like there is a supernatural power drawing them together.
They have similar interests, as Albritton is a huge Sports Fan. and O'Donnell loves to watch obscure movies, and work on her vocabulary. Neither family has come forth with a statement, but one can only imagine that there is great concern on the part of their parents. Speculation has been that Albritton actually asked permission from O'Donnell's father for his new fiance' s hand in marriage. There has been wild rumors as to if he received it or not. We only know one thing, the shocking engagement came when no one suspected it. Albritton escaped the prying eyes of the paparazzi once again, by popping the question early one morning after breaking into O'Donnells exclusive downtown loft . Neighbors say he knocked on the door, and she actually let him right in.
Hillenblog was able to sit down with O'Drew for an exclusive interview on the day of the engagement. The EXCLUSIVE first photos (above) were captured of the happy couple just hours after the mysterious surprise visit to her apartment to place the Giant Rock of a diamond on her left hand. You can see in the pictures that they are glowing with excitement.
