As far as the love lives of your favorite celebrities are concerned, several A-list couples have made things official by getting engaged in recent months. It seems that nearly every week, a new celebrity couple got engaged and inspired some major engagement ring envy.
In 2019, we started the year on an exciting foot with Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom and Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announcing their engagements less than a month apart! Emma Stone and Dave McCary made things official in December that year and so many celebs sported new bling after the holidays!
And even during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, celebrities haven't allowed the quarantine to stop them from popping the question. We're currently obsessing over both Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz's and Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich's romantic engagements, which both happened in July. Did we mention that One Direction bandmate Liam Payne put a ring on his girlfriend of two years at the end of August?
Here is your complete guide to every current celebrity engagement. Based on the looks of this list, we have some pretty exciting weddings to look forward to!
Jonathan Bennet and Jaymes Vaughn
Raise your hand if you’ve been personally touched by this adorable proposal! Mean Girls actor Jonathan Bennet is engaged to longtime boyfriend and TV host Jaymes Vaughn! Bennett told People he was completely surprised by the sweet proposal. To top it off, Vaughn even recorded a song to propose to Bennett, which he wrote while Bennett was off filming The Christmas House, the first Hallmark holiday movie to feature a gay lead. “I heard a song playing from a place I didn’t even realize we had a speaker and Jaymes told me to just listen,” Bennett told People. “It was Jaymes’s voice singing the most beautiful song I had ever heard, a song about our relationship.” The two have been together since 2017.
Vaughn popped the question over the Thanksgiving holiday with custom engagement rings he designed with the help of Kay Jewelers and their social platform The Union, which offers proposal and engagement advice. The same-sex engagement rings are platinum bands with a brushed satin finish adorned with diamonds on one side of the band—made to be turned over once they’ve tied the knot.
Matthew Perry and Molly Hurwitz
In what feels like something straight out of a Thanksgiving Friends episode, Matthew Perry is engaged to longtime girlfriend Molly Hurwitz!

I think in the future, for sure,” she said in an October 23 interview.

Kotb surprised her co-anchors by showing off her sparkly new diamond on live television!

I thought it was a sign that I needed to do it, and a week later I popped the question.”
Adam Devine and Chloe Bridges

Middleton presented Thevenet with a ring very similar to his sister's, a square-cut blue stone on a white-gold or platinum band.

Middleton might even enlist his niece and nephew Princess Charlotte and Prince George as a wedding attendants!

Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix
Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix have managed to keep their relationship pretty low-key since getting together in 2016. However, 2019 was the year Phoenix would propose! The actress sparked engagement rumors after she was seen wearing a ring on her left hand while running errands in Los Angeles. Their engagement was later confirmed and Mara most recently supported her fiancé on the red carpet for his movie Joker.
Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams
A beach proposal was fitting for Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams. The former Bachelorette contestant proposed to the Modern Family actress with an oval-shaped diamond ring. The couple hosted an intimate engagement party in October 2019 with tacos and tequila—just like their first date!
Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk
This Bachelor Nation couple made things official with an engagement this year. After meeting on season 4 of Bachelor of Paradise, Gottschalk proposed at the end of May 2019. He tricked Gates into thinking she was doing a photoshoot for her online boutique. In the middle of the photoshoot, he surprised her by getting down on one knee!
Don Lemon and Tim Malone
CNN anchor Don Lemon proposed to boyfriend Tim Malone with some help from the couple's pup. The host shared the news on Instagram in April 2019 by posting a photo of the custom dog tag he used to do the honors. "Daddy, will you marry papa?" was written on the tag and of course, Malone said yes!
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez officially became J-Rod when the former baseball star proposed to the singer while on vacation in the Bahamas in 2019. The emerald-cut diamond ring he used to pop the question was estimated to be worth between $1 and $4.5 million. Since then the engaged couple has been going strong, even celebrating their engagement with a party in September 2019. The wedding has been postponed indefinitely but based on some hints from Rodriguez, we expect it to be a destination bash!
Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola and Christian Biscardi
