Wilder Towne Helberg's parents Simon Helberg and Jocelyn Towne 

In his interview with Mirror, the Big Bang Theory Star stated:

"It's sort of embarrassing. It's about my wife and I and our break up before I proposed. I thought I would like to marry this girl, so first of all I'm going to systematically destroy my entire life and our relationship and lie and ruin all my friendships."

He continued:

"I freaked out, I thought I had feelings for other people, I thought that I needed more of an exciting life. I had the perfect thing but for whatever reason...It was an exercise in self destruction."

Although Helberg realized his mistake, it was a bit late. Following the split, Towne decided to move to Paris, France, where she met another man.

Gandi said, "You don't know who is important to you until you actually lose them, " The same happened with the actor.

Simon went after her, and though it was not easy, he eventually convinced her to take him back, and the duo ended up back in the US. 

This time around, Helberg did not waste his time and immediately proposed to her.

Speaking on the Late Show with David Letterman, he joked: "I proposed immediately on her return because I thought if I can just trap her and force her to marry me that's the most romantic thing anyone could ask for."

Though their engagement was not a fairytale, they sort out all their differences and choose over insecurities, which is enough.
