“Her name’s Sara!” he reportedly said over the phone to his mother. “She likes video games just like me. I met her at the convention.”
After a brief pause he added, “Yeah you can tell Grandma. I think you’re all going to really like her.”

“Can’t wait to meet her!” Beth Phillips, Reynolds’ aunt who rarely comments on his page, wrote on the status.
“There’s plenty of time for her to meet everyone,” Reynolds replied, adding an overly confident laughing emoji. “Thanksgiving’s only a few months away and I’m already thinking of what she might want for Christmas!”
Outside the convention center, Sara put on a motorcycle helmet before hopping on the back of her boyfriend’s motorcycle, who had come to pick her up.
“Which one? The one in with stains all over his jeans? Aw he was so sweet,” she said when asked about Reynolds. “They’re all so sweet. I think he was a little, you know, off. But I hope he finds someone another Comic Con person or whatever.”
“My name’s Claire, by the way!” she added as she sped off.
