Following the performance, they joined cast member Dashaun Young (Simba) backstage where he presented them with a gift from the cast. Ali and Roberto were all smiles when they received the custom-made Playbill in which they got star billing.
Ali and Roberto’s love first blossomed at The Lion King while making a cameo appearance in March. Roberto won Ali’s heart when he and seven other bachelors auditioned for Ali and Thomas Schumacher, producer of Lion King. Roberto’s singing and dancing made him the lucky man chosen to appear with Ali during “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” in that night’s performance of the hit Broadway musical.
Here are some shots of the couple backstage with Dashaun Young:
