The daughter of NBC news anchor Brian Williams met her now fiancé through mutual friends and the couple have been dating for three years.
She told Glamour earlier this month that she would "walk away from" her career in order to have children with her then-boyfriend.
"I'd love to be a mom – and not have to bring my kids into my trailer … Or a balance [of both]," Allison said at the time. “But you’ve [got to] call it on the fly to a certain extent."

According to reports, College Humor co-founder Ricky wanted to follow tradition when it came to popping the question, asking Allison's dad for her hand in marriage before asking his actress girlfriend to marry him.
Allison has risen to fame with her role on acclaimed series Girls, created by co-star Lena Dunham.
The pair, joined by fellow star Zosia Mamet, hit the red carpet at the premiere of the third season of the show at Cineworld Haymarket in London mid-Januray. Allison dazzled in an Alexander McQueen dress and clutch, Brian Atwood shoes, and Jessica McCormack jewels for the UK premiere.
