In fact, things were quite awkward when Ben admitted that he had no remembrance of his first meeting with his fiancé in The Late show hosted by James Corden. He further says that he blew her off the first time he met her,

“So I’m thinking, ‘What kind of idiot would blow off this gorgeous, beautiful, sophisticated, intelligent, successful woman?’ Then I thought of what kind of boy I was at 25, and [I was] that kind of idiot.”

This engaged couple actually met on the set of Fox TV series Gotham itself. This time, they both were able to remember each other and even fall in love. This engagement news is truly a good news to all the Gotham fans rooting for them. Wedding planners better be optimistic, they are soon to be in need.
