Former Netflix Cheer Star Morgan Simianer Is Engaged

Finally some good news out of the popular Netflix show Cheer! The show’s second season had a darker tone, thanks to the pandemic and allegations against Jerry Harris. And one of my favorites, Morgan Simianer, wasn’t a main part of the season. She was heavily featured in season one and her heart breaking backstory won over fans. She graduated from Navarro in 2020 and couldn’t compete in that year’s championships due to the pandemic cancelling everything. For season 2, she was only briefly shown cheering on her old teammates at the Daytona Championships. But now that she’s moved on, she has found happiness outside of cheerleading.

As reported by Page Six, Morgan is now an engaged woman! She just announced on her Instagram that boyfriend Stone Burleson proposed while the couple was in Dallas, Texas. She captioned a photo of them kissing, “He stole my heart, so I’m stealing his last name. I can’t wait to marry my best friend. I love you unconditionally, Stone.” Morgan used pictures from her engagement photos at the HALL Arts Hotel.

Apparently, Stone tricked Morgan into going to the hotel for a fake interview and photoshoot with none other than Monica Aldama, her former Cheer coach. Once there, she was met by Stone. Speaking of stones, he proposed with a 2 and 3/4 carat diamond. The center stone is set among a halo of diamonds and features and 18K yellow gold band. That’s quite the rock!

But the surprises continued for Morgan. After the proposal was complete, Morgan was greeted by her close family and friends. A celebration ensued. On Stone’s Instagram, he posted his own adorable message. He captioned the same picture of them kissing and wrote, “On Saturday, the woman of my dreams blessed my entire world by saying ‘Yes.’ Morgan Lyn Simianer, I can’t wait for my life with you by my side.” Morgan gushed in his comments, “I love you!!! I get to marry my best friend!!!”

The engagement comes just two weeks after the pair celebrated their one year anniversary. Morgan shared with People, “I’m so excited I get to marry my best friend. I’ve been dreaming about this day since I was a little girl. Stone has made my dreams come true. I’m so excited to be with him for the rest of my life.”
