Nick Kroll is a newly-married man, and he has a certain pop star to thank for his perfect proposal to landscape artist Lily Kwong.
During his visit to The Tonight Show Monday night (Nov. 30), Kroll told host Jimmy Fallon about how the COVID-19 lockdown prevented him from seeking out other people’s for advice on how to propose. So while he was at a table reading for Olivia Wilde’s upcoming drama Don’t Worry Darling, he asked some of the movie’s other stars, Harry Styles and Florence Pugh, for some clever ideas.
“I was just spitballin’ with Flo and H-Bomb, and Olivia,” Kroll joked, noting that Styles actually came up with an idea he liked.
The couple had just moved into a new house, and Kroll put a huge bouquet of flowers into a moving box with the ring in the center of the arrangement, which he asked Kwong to move for him. When she opened the box and saw the flowers, she was duly surprised, and before they could even snap a picture and call their folks, Styles texted him seeking an update. “‘Have you done it yet? What’s going on?’” Styles apparently asked.
And when Kroll relayed that Kwong had said yes, Styles became the very first person to share their joy. “Harry Styles was the first person to know we were getting married… and he gave us his blessing and it meant the world.” Kroll said, adding that Styles also very sweetly sent along a huge bouquet of flowers for the wedding.
“He doesn’t know this yet, but he is now going to be the guardian of all our children,” joked Kroll.
Kroll and Kwong tied the knot in an intimate cliffside wedding in Big Sur, California in November 2020.
