'She's my best friend': Robbie Amell gushes about fiancée Italia Ricci at 'The DUFF' premiere

By Jenn McNaughton

After celebrating their first Valentine's Day as a newly engaged couple, Robbie Amell and his beautiful fiancée, Italia Ricci, appeared to be more in love than ever as they attended The DUFF movie premiere in Toronto on Monday (Feb. 17).

The two walked the "pink carpet" while coordinating in black bomber jackets, sending us right back to our varsity days. In DUFF, Robbie plays the hunky high school jock alongside actress Allison Janney and Hollywood sweetheart Bella Thorne.


Going to high school in Toronto, Robbie told Hello! Canada that he was indeed a jock, “[But] the kind with the good heart who you know would stand up for a kid that’s getting bullied but still plays a lot of sports and definitely bros out with his friends.”

Despite working with an all-star cast, he only had eyes for his leading lady the entire night. “We’ve been together for so long; she’s my best friend and I get to share it with her. It’s the best," he gushed.

“I’m so happy for him! I feel like a proud mom,” said Italia, who is originally from Richmond Hill, Ont.

The hopeless romantics got engaged last August after celebrating six years together, and we couldn’t help but note the gorgeous diamond sparkler on Italia's finger. “His dad actually made it! Robbie designed it and his dad made it," she said of her ring bling.

Can we look forward to the date anytime soon? “ It’s all up to her! I’m just going to nod and say ‘yes’,” admitted Robbie, who hails from Toronto, Ont.

One thing’s for sure - he’s mastered the art of the charm!
