While filming a segment for The Drew Barrymore Show, the host asked Appleton how his “libido” has been doing as of late.
“It’s pretty good, actually,” he responded. Barrymore then asked if there was anything he’d like to share with her on the show. Appleton said:
“I’m very happy, very much in love. I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special. Love is a really special thing. And I think meeting someone that you really connect with is really, really special.”
Barrymore proceeded to sing Appleton’s praises and called him “the world’s greatest catch.” The show then popped up a picture of Appleton and Gage from their trip to Mexico.
In the social media post for the video, the official account for The Drew Barrymore Show also identified actor Lukas Gage as the man that Appleton was talking about.
