Comedian Nath Valvo is getting married to his partner Cody soon, and has talked about the cute moment his partner proposed at home “mid-rissole”.

Nath and Cody (above) have been together for nine years, and the gay funnyman told The Project that movies and TV had created big expectations for the big question.

“I feel that the movies and TV have made proposals so memorable, with rain and poetry [and] doves,” Nath said.

“Cody proposed to me in the kitchen while making rissoles – I’m going to tear up!

“He was making his rissoles for the week because he’s a nerd alert. He was mid-rissole in the kitchen. It was Sunday afternoon. He asked me while cooking.

“No ring or anything, because he knows I’m very picky and I need to choose things.

“I’m a bit of a control freak, and so I get to choose the ring eventually. So Kmart, here I come!”

Nath explained the couple are planning to tie the knot in January. But the comedian explained the pair have made a tough call not to allow plus-ones at the wedding.

“My family’s too big, they’re huge. So many cousins. The Valvos love to root,” he said.

“The venue isn’t very big and we had to be very tight with numbers.

“We had to take off partners, people’s partners that we’ve never met… we’ve taken them off the list.

“The partners that aren’t invited, they’re so happy. They’re so stoked. Who wants to be dragged along to their partner’s friend’s wedding?”
