Nothing warms our heart more than a few celebrity engagements. Not because being married is the biggest accolade an adult can have, but because we could all do with some good news now and again. Plus, comparing notes on celebs’ extortionate engagement rings is basically a certified hobby.
So let’s celebrate the ones that made the decision to put a ring on it; the ones that said yes; and the ones that still believe in fairy tale endings.
Here are all the celebrity engagements we can’t stop obsessing over:
On Valentine’s Day, American gymnast (and most decorated Olympic gymnast of all time) Simone Biles announced her engagement to NFL star Jonathan Owens, calling it “the easiest yes” and adding, “I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ.”
Simone kindly shared a close-up of the engagement ring, which you can see (in all its glory), here:
The proposal took place under a tree very special to the couple, and involved a ritual of drinking each other’s blood… To each their own, we guess!
On Sunday 28th November last year, Lindsay Lohan also announced that she’s engaged to Bader Shammas, her boyfriend of two years. “My love. My life. My family. My future. #love,” she captioned the carousel on Instagram showing the happy couple smiling and embracing.
Earlier in November, Kristen Stewart became engaged to Dylan Meyer after two years of dating. She revealed on the The Howard Stern Show that Dylan proposed to her, saying, “We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it.
“I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We’re marrying, it’s happening.”
Kourtney took to Instagram to post a snap of the pair embracing within a dramatic display of roses – right next to the ocean. She captioned the post, “Forever,” and Travis commented “FOREVER ♾.”
A source told E! News, “It happened during the sunset at Rosewood Miramar. They had just got back from NYC and decided to do a day trip to Montecito. Kourtney thought it was going to be a casual day, as they always go to Rosewood, and she was totally thrown off.”
Kate Hudson also recently announced her engagement. Ahead of attending the Met Gala 2021, she posted to Instagram to announce that she and Danny Fujikawa will be tying the knot. Sharing a snap of her and her husband-to-be embracing next to the beach (and showing off a sparkly ring and a fresh mani), with the caption, “Let’s go!”
Britney Spears also announced her engagement in September 2021. Just days after it was announced that her father is stepping down as her conservator, which prevented her from marrying long-term boyfriend Sam or having more children, the singer took to Instagram to post a video showing her stunning engagement ring.
Sam also posted a separate photo to his account as his manager Brandon Cohen confirmed the news to People.
“The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” he said.
Then, of course, former One Direction singer Liam Payne got engaged to his girlfriend of two years, Maya Henry. Payne popped the question with an AH-MAZING diamond ring that set him back a whopping £3 million… Yep, you read that right.
Texan-born model Maya flashed her new dazzler after the couple was spotted enjoying a romantic meal at London’s Novikov. According to sources, their engagement took place during lockdown. Although they had hit a rough patch the last couple of weeks, it seems like the couple are back on track, just two months after almost calling it quits for good. If they’re happy, we’re happy!
They’re not the only ones either. Little Mix kween, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, announced her engagement to Andre Gray. The footballer set up an incredibly romantic proposal sitch in their garden and the pair have recently welcomed twins! Nawww.
