Paget Brewster and Her Husband Steve Damstra Unified by Matthew Gray Gubler
Actress and singer Paget Brewster, renowned for her role as Emily Prentiss on Criminal Minds, is a happily married woman. She has been in a marital relationship with her husband, Steve Damstra, since November 28, 2014.
The actress' beautiful relationship had a very interesting beginning. Brewster and her husband apparently were introduced to each other by her Criminal Minds co-star Matthew Gray Gubler.
Gubler reportedly introduced Brewster to his friend Damstra in the early 2010s. Damstra is a songwriter, composer, and musician. He is half of the soft-rock duo, Folded Light.
The couple, unified by the 41-year-old actor, subsequently went on to get engaged in March 2013. The news was revealed by the actress herself, as she took to her Twitter to post a picture of the jade engagement ring on her finger.
"It's jade. And he's the best. Wait for the best, ladies, wait until you're 44 if that's what it takes!" she wrote in her tweet.
Matthew Gray Gubler Was Also Involved in Their Wedding
Over a year after the engagement, Brewster and Damstra decided to tie the knot and start a new journey together. That being said, their wedding didn't go untouched by Gubler, who had a special role in the couple's wedding in Los Angeles, California.
A day before the wedding, on November 27, 2014, Gubler took to Twitter to reveal that he was adjured to officiate the wedding. He wrote that he was "dang excited" to perform the marriage ceremony of his two best friends.
A week later, he posted another tweet, sharing a snap from the wedding featuring himself and the married couple. He also expressed that he "had the unique pleasure of getting to officiate the marriage of 2 of my best friends and now i have minister fever."
In a special tweet, Brewster also publicly thanked her co-star and best friend for playing a big role in unifying her with her husband.
Unrelated, but a few years later, the actress posted a snap with her husband on Twitter and urged her followers to wait for the right person to get married. She gave that suggestion, saying, "Ladies, I got married at 45. Wait for the person who thrills you, adores you, gets you and calls you on your bullshit. It's worth the wait."
Matthew Gray Gubler Sees Paget Brewster as His Best Friend
We often hear stories of two people meeting each other on a film set and becoming life partners, but here we have a slightly different bond, which is equally special.
Gubler and Brewster became good friends after they got to know each other while working on the crime drama series, Criminal Minds, together.
During an interview with Glamour in December 2015, the actor was asked who had most bonded with amongst the cast of Criminal Minds, to which he promptly responded by saying that Brewster was his best friend.
"I married her and introduced her to her husband," he added, taking credit for Brewster and Damstra's marriage in a friendly way.
In the series, Gubler played one of the starring roles as supervisory special agent Spencer Reid in all the seasons of the show. Brewster, on the other hand, played another lead role as FBI supervisory special agent Emily Prentiss, appearing regularly from 2006 to 2012.
