Supernatural stars DJ Qualls and Ty Olsson are ENGAGED - 10 years after meeting at a fan convention: 'We're going to be old men together'

DJ Qualls and Ty Olsson, who starred together on the TV series Supernatural, are engaged.

Qualls, 45, announced the engagement news on this week's episode of his podcast Locked and Probably Loaded, which he co-hosts with Kelly Blackheart.

'Ty and I became inseparable at the very beginning, just immediately,' Qualls opened up. 'And over the last ten years our relationship evolved to what it is today, and now we're getting married.'

DJ played the werewolf Garth on the long-running CW show, while Olsson, 50, played the character Benny.

Recalling their relationship trajectory, he said that he and his now-fiancé 'didn't know each other at all' when they first crossed paths.

'We maybe said three words together at the Supernatural convention, and then we went to London for four or five days afterward.'

DJ explained how Ty made the 'ballsy' move of inviting himself on a trip to Turkey he'd been planning with a friend.

'He came up to us — we all went out as a group — and he was like, 'Can I come on your trip with you?'

'And I'm like, 'That is so ballsy!' I could never invite myself on somebody's trip because I would be afraid they would begrudgingly tell me yes and then not want me there.'

He added about his husband-to-be, 'But it was just so pure and awesome, and that's who he is. I didn't know him. And it was the beginning of our friendship.'

Qualls later called his future spouse Olsson one of the 'most wonderful' people he has ever met.

He reflected: 'It's just so crazy that this person who was just my friend, now I think about all the time and he sends the best messages, and he supports me and loves me unconditionally in the right way, because I would never abuse that.'

The actor clarified that 'unconditional love' means 'you treat that person with respect and their best interests are your best interests,' which was the kind of love Olsson shows him.

'Now we're going to be old men together, which is so crazy,' DJ mused.
