Rise to Prominence
  • Andrea came under the media radar after her relationship with American actor and singer Grant Gustin was revealed. The two had been dating each other since January 2017. They met each other for the first time on December 23, 2016, at a dinner party hosted by the 'Sabah Tourism Board.'
  • Andrea and Gustin got engaged on April 29, 2017. He proposed to his lady love with a large round-cut diamond ring while they were working out on the beach. She turned around and found Gustin down on his knees, with the solitaire in his hand. Gustin had revealed that he was not prepared for the proposal and that it was an impromptu act. Andrea, too, had not expected it, and she thought the proposal was a joke or prank played on her.
  • Gustin had initially planned to propose to Andrea on a movie shoot but was too occupied with his commitment to 'The Flash' and other scheduling complications. Nevertheless, he still managed to chalk out a plan to surprise Andrea with the marriage proposal. Unfortunately, even that plan was ruined, as they were sharing a backpack during a workout. While the two were working out on the beach, Gustin forgot that he had kept the ring in the backpack. He later thought that Andre had already seen the ring and thus delayed the proposal. However, he later found out that she had actually not seen the ring. Gustin then shared the news of their engagement through an 'Instagram' post.
  • Andrea and Gusting got married on December 15, 2018. The wedding was held at 'Valentine DTLA,' a venue in Los Angeles.
