Metz recalled meeting Stancil “at the beginning” of This Is Us "through a friend,"and noted that he was "not an actor."
"He is a sweet treat and he’s wonderful," she added.
While Metz is clearly head-over-heels for her boyfriend, she admitted to being cautious when speaking about their relationship. “Here’s the thing, he needs to have his own life,” she explained. “I don’t want him roped into mine, so I just want to protect him. My little sweet treat.”
