By Nicole Weintraub

From Bridesmaids to marriage, Chris O’Dowd has been keeping busy. The Bridesmaids star tied the knot with girlfriend Dawn Porter on August 26, according to People. The couple met at Porter’s birthday party back in 2009 and a year later became engaged. The ceremony spanned over three days, all of which were filled with low-key activities. Following the wedding, O’Dowd shared a racy photo of his new wife with the public, which was meant to be kept private. The photo has since been removed due to a request from Porter once she found out about her new husband’s sharing. In his defense, he stated he was merely showing off his new wife.

How do you show that you are proud of your significant other?

Cupid’s Advice:

Jealousy and pride are two very different emotions. Here are some tips on how to show how you are proud of your significant other:

1. Don’t compare: Your accomplishments and your partner’s accomplishments are two completely different things. Do not compare what your significant other has done with what you have done. It will do the opposite of what you are hoping to do.

2. Boast about them: When you are proud of someone, you want to share their achievements with the world. Talk about your partner and their feats that you are proud of. Here’s a tip: talk about them when they are not there. That way, they will know you are not putting on a show for them.

3. Tell them: If you are proud of someone, tell them! Communication is key. Nothing will make your significant partner happier then to hear directly from you how proud of them you are. Chances are, they have wanted to hear it for a while.
