Who is Safiya Nygaard's fiancé?

Before becoming known for her content, Safiya attended prestigious Stanford University, where she was an active participant in their theatre program. She met Tyler Williams, who was a year above her at Stanford, through one of their theatre productions. He was in an a capella group at the university, and they had mutual friends. 

While the couple didn't initially begin dating after meeting, they were acquaintances. They reconnected in L.A. a year after Safiya graduated, and they then became close friends for several months. When Tyler asked Safiya to go to Disneyland, she assumed it was a date, and they've been together ever since.

Since beginning their relationship in 2014, Tyler has become more active in Safiya's vlogging life. He films most of her videos, and he's often featured in them. There was one video Safiya wasn't privy to, however.

In December of 2018, Tyler filmed a vlog about how he was going to propose to Safiya.

"Safiya and I have been dating for over four years, and since then, we've done a lot of stuff. We've seen each other through career changes, we've traveled the world together, we've adopted and taken care of a dumpster cat together," he said. "For the last couple of years, we've worked non-stop on this channel together."

Tyler took Safiya to Disneyland, the site of their first date, and he proposed with a black diamond ring at the Snow White wishing well. 

He also has his own YouTube channel, which boasts more than 1.1 million subscribers. While Safiya's content often centers around makeup, Tyler's channel is focused on food concoctions. But, his last video was created more than eight months ago, so it's clear that he's been working around the clock on Safiya's content.
