Wilson told People magazine in May that she lost weight in 2020 as a fertility doctor had told her she would have a better chance of becoming a mom.

She explained: “I thought, ‘Oh God, this guy’s so rude.’ He was right.

“I was carrying around a lot of excess weight. It’s almost like I didn’t think of my own needs.

“I thought of a future child’s needs that really inspired me to get healthier.”

There has been recent speculation that Wilson and Agruma got engaged.

According to Page Six, they were spotted at George Clooney’s Halloween party, where they dressed as Barbie boxes, wearing diamond rings.

However, the actress and her partner denied this claim while taking a trip to Disneyland, where they posed in front of Sleeping Beauty’s iconic castle with the caption: “Thanks for the well wishes but we are NOT engaged.”

The Senior Year star had previously dated Jacob Busch, the heir to the Anheuser-Busch brewing company, however, they split up in 2021 after getting together just before the pandemic.

Wilson came out as gay earlier this year with an Instagram post of her with her girlfriend, accompanied by a heartfelt caption.

She wrote: “I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess.”

The pair met after being set up by a friend, who believed that the pair would hit it off.
