Seth Rogen announces his engagement on Conan’s first show

by Kelly MacNeil on November 9, 2010

Many fans tuned in to the premiere of Conan O'Brien's new TBS talk show last night but the beloved funnyman shared the spotlight with actor Seth Rogen, who publicly confirmed his engagement to long-term girlfriend Lauren Miller. It has been suspected that the two would tie the knot since late September.

"Literally, I felt like someone had given me like a truckload of heroin to hold onto," Rogen said on the show. "I felt like the feds were going to kick in my door at any second. I couldn't have a conversation with my girlfriend. All I could think of was this ring. Like 'Don't say 'Lord of the Rings!' Don't mention anything about a ring!"

Rogen took the opportunity to share the moment anecdotally, confessing his imperfect timing.

"She was in our closet changing, and she was literally only in her underpants, and her boobs were out," Rogen said. "I'd already kind of started, and I was like 'Oh man, her boobs are out! That's not part of the plan!' I didn't picture it like this, and I know she didn't picture it like this. No little girl is like 'It'll happen in a closet with my tits out.'"

At that point, Rogen said, he decided that "the only appropriate thing was to place the ring on her nipple."

Rogen also discussed California's Proposition 19 and his svelte new physique. The actor had slimmed down for his upcoming role in the superhero movie "The Green Hornet".

A friend of Rogen's told Life & Style in September that Miller had "started giving up hope that he would ever pop the question." Miller's family is nothing short of thrilled, says the friend, and as Rogen puts it, "I have a girlfriend who is far prettier than I should have." Rogen and Miller, both 28, have been dating since 2004.

Conan, whose new show will air Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. EST, is kicking-off his first week back on air with a number of guest appearances from big-names. In addition to Rogen, stars such as Jack White, Tom Hanks and Michael Cera are slated to appear.
