Emmy and Sam are Engaged

Writer and Director, Sam Esmail maybe a ‘nerd’ according to Emmy Rossum, but he knew what is a perfect choice to impress his girl. The creator of hit TV series ‘Mr. Robot’ proposed to ‘Speechless’ star Emmy in August with an illuminating forever brilliant diamond ring. No wonder Emmy wore her sunglasses during their first public appearance post engagement.


The diamond solitaire’s lustrous band clearly expresses her vibrant personality and Sam’s classic taste. Although, they refused to comment on carat weight and metal type, we can estimate her brilliant white diamond is more than two carats, and metal type is possibly White Gold or Platinum. Nevertheless, Emmy’s man has an eye for exceptional quality.


They met while making a film called ‘Cornet’ in 2013. He was the film’s director and she had a starring role. Clearly, a Hollywood fairy tale story comes to life. Rossum and Esmail made their first red carpet appearance as a couple at their premiere released in 2014.

During an interview on Live! With Kelly & Michael in October 2014, the 28-year-old admitted Sam is a ‘bit of a nerd’. “He doesn’t know chivalry too well, so we have to bust his chops a little bit and tell him every time a woman stood up and went to the restroom, he had to stand up.”

However, opposite from Fiona Gallagher (her character) on Showtime’s ‘Shameless’, the actress is highly impressed with her fiancé’s geek style. “I don’t gravitate to the jock; it’s the nerdy guy in the corner,” Emmy clarified her personal choice.

This will be ‘ Phantom of the Opera’ star’s second time down the aisle. She was previously married to music executive, Justin Siegel from 2008 and 2010. When asked by Cosmopolitan (found in October issue) about giving marriage a second chance, Emmy replied,” I hope I do. Honestly, I was so young. I do not think I knew what marriage meant. My parents were never married, and I was teased in school. So the idea of marriage as safety forever was idealized in my head, and we rushed into it.”

However, her relationship with Sam taught her not to be afraid of love. ‘It is scary, but worth it!”

We are happy for Emmy and Sam, and wish them a bright and sparkling future. Just as brilliant and beautiful as her diamonds.
