I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m an expert on all of The CW’s melodrama soap opera superhero shows like Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. But I’m also not going to sit here and lie to you like I haven’t shipped Flash star Grant Gustin and Supergirl star Melissa Benoist as a couple in real life. The chemistry and warmth between these two on screen helped me get over my ex-girlfriend. Just kidding, it was booze and painkillers.
Sadly, their romance was not meant to be.
Gustin, 27, just popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Andrea “LA” Thoma. We have no idea what the “LA” stands for, but that’s how she does it.
Thoma is a physical therapist from Norfolk, Virginia who reportedly played soccer in high school and was even inducted into her school’s athletic Hall of Fame. We also know that Thoma reportedly got her bachelors degree from Kent State and a doctorate in physical therapy from Old Dominion.
She’s also just as gorgeous as Iris West. Way to go, Barry Allen. Way to go.
