Carney proposed to his girlfriend on her 34th birthday. Just after Branch finished blowing out her candles Carney presented her with an art deco engagement ring. Branch shared her news with her fans on her Instagram showing off her exquisite ring.
“Thank you for all the birthday love and wishes," she captioned the July post. “Last night, right before I blew out my candles, Patrick asked me to marry him and then I had nothing left to wish for … 34 might be the best year yet."
