Did Chris Martin Get Engaged Before Officially Divorcing Gwyneth Paltrow?

It has only been a few days since Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's divorce became official, but a recent Instagram post by Martin's new girlfriend has fans wondering if he already has plans to get married again.

The buzz started after 39-year-old Martin's girlfriend, 31-year-old actress Annabelle Wallis, posted a photo on her Instagram account two weeks ago. In the post (which you can see below), Wallis is wearing a white Malene Oddershede Bach dress covered in pink flowers (which is adorable, btw), and on her ring finger, you can see what looks like a huge diamond engagement ring.

If that wasn't enough to get fans talking, she captioned the photo "Perfect dress for a wedding." Though the caption probably isn't in reference to her own wedding, the huge diamond sparkler has people questioning whether this meant that Martin got down on one knee before his very public divorce from Paltrow was finalized last week.

There are conflicting reports on when Martin and Wallis officially became an item, with The Daily Mail reporting that they have been together since last fall, and The Sun claiming that they became official in March of this year. Previously, Martin and Paltrow were married for 11 years and have two children together, Apple and Moses. The former couple has had a pretty amicable separation, with the two still spending holidays together as a family and Paltrow even attending Martin's concert in Cannes. They have famously called to their separation a "conscious uncoupling," which is defined by BBC as "the idea of a joint spiritual journey, resulting in an amicable split which also takes the needs of any children into account."

No one has released a statement yet confirming or denying the engagement, but we can't help but wonder whether or not Paltrow would receive an invite to the potential wedding. Even if she did receive an invitation, would she request a plus one for her boyfriend, Glee co-creator Bran Falchuk?
