“I’ve been listening to this double LP on a loop,” he told Iowa magazine. “In a kind of Rainy moment, I discovered that I had a photographic memory of the dialogues of the film, activated by listening to the music.”

Icenogle followed his passion for music and storytelling and brought his skills to the big and small screen. The ASCAP award-winning composer and music producer, whose career dates back to 2005, has worked on shows such as The History of Comedy, Will & Grace and Q-Force. He also composed the music for the 2020 comedy Lazy Susan, with and co-written by Hayes.

“He remade the music for Will & Grace,” Hayes told PEOPLE in January 2018. “He composes and produces music, and made the music for a show that my company produced. It’s called The History of Comedy on CNN, and I was able to perform it on the piano. It was a beautiful thing to do, and he’s great.”

In addition, Icenogle is known for his popular dance remixes of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man” and Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl”, as well as other high-profile artists such as Beyoncé and Celine Dion.

Hayes added: “And it sounds really corny and corny to say it, but I saw him, and I knew he was the kind of person I needed to be with because, that’s the corny part, because I know he’ll make me better, and he’s a very solid and stable person, and I’m a crazy actor.”

Hayes humorously proposed to her

Proposals are usually romantic and planned, but in his 2018 interview with PEOPLE, Hayes admitted that his proposal to Icenogle was short and hilarious.

“They started with this Jennifer Hudson and Iggy Azalea song years ago,” Hayes said during an appearance on the Rachael Ray show in 2019. “I thought five people were going to watch it, [but it got] hundreds of millions of views, which is crazy.”

Although they haven’t uploaded a lip-syncing video to YouTube since March 2019, the duo continues to post silly music videos on social media.

She co-wrote a children’s book with Hayes

In November 2017, PEOPLE exclusively revealed that Hayes and Icenogle had co-written a Nutcracker-inspired children’s book called Plum. The story follows a young orphan named Plum who embarks on a journey to save Christmas.

“We had been talking for years about writing a children’s book,” Hayes told PEOPLE. “Mainly for the same reason we made those silly Facebook/YouTube lip sync videos: the challenge. Once we both agreed that it had to come from the Nutcracker, something that we both revered since childhood, the idea began to spring from us. Since we don’t have children, we have practically adopted the plum in our lives. She’s a special girl.”

Hayes added: “We are in love with Plum’s story and would like to continue her story, if people react positively to her journey and the world we have created, but we also have several other ideas up our sleeve that are not related to the Nutcracker.”
