AS THE WORLD TURNS Alum Danny Pintauro Engaged To Wil Tabares

In 1983 on AS THE WORLD TURNS, Paul Stenbeck (Danny Pintauro) was
a pawn in the biter custody battle between his father James and his mother,
Barbara (Colleen Zenk, above with Hugo Napier who played Gunnar).
Danny Pintauro was not the first child actor to play Paul Ryan Stenbeck in AS THE WORLD TURNS but he's the first Paul many fans remember. He went from playing Colleen Zenk's ATWT son in the early 1980s on ATWT to WHO'S THE BOSS, where he played the son of ONE LIFE TO LIVE alum Judith Light. Now all grown up, Pintauro is engaged to boyfriend Wil Tabares. The happy couple, who live and work in Las Vegas, headed to Palm Springs, Calif. earlier this week to celebrate their one-year anniversary together.

"He made a video, and in the video held up the box [with the ring]," Pintauro, now a Vegas restaurant manager, tells Us. "I looked up and he had it in his hand!" Entertainer and Cosmopolitan casino employee Tabares quickly shared the happy news -- and a pic of the ring -- with his Facebook friends. "He said yes!" read the caption.

Their wedding plans are slightly complicated, legally speaking. "We live in a state, Nevada, that does not yet allow same-sex marriage," explains the Stanford University grad, who came out as gay in 1997, and whose most recent acting credit was a 2010 episode of THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER. "Our plan is to move to California once Prop 8 is overturned."
