Addressing the engagement during his interview with Esquire, the actor confirms it was a long time coming and they waited for a while before making their engagement public.

 “It was a long time coming. We’d waited a while before we announced it. I had a whole thing written, like, ‘Usually I don’t like talking about my private life...’ which I really don’t—I was really allergic to it for a while. Eventually, I got over myself and realized that it’s just the best way to let people know.”

While Criss is widely known for his role of Andrew Cunanan, the social-climbing narcissist turned serial killer in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, his now wife Mia has also worked for Fox and Showtime. She furthermore, attended New York University’s Steinhardt School of Media Studies and Television Production.
