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! And then, just when we thought royal wedding fever was over, Princess Beatrice announced her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi popped the question (yay for another royal wedding!).
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
Orlando Bloom took advantage of Valentine's Day to propose to singer Katy Perry this year! The engagement went down during a helicopter ride that caught Perry completely off-guard. The actor proposed with a flower-shaped engagement ring with a pink diamond center stone. To announce the news to her fans, Perry posted a photo of the couple, which featured her ring, along with the caption "Full bloom. A 2020 wedding is in the works for these two and we can't wait!
Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola and Christian Biscardi
Two years into dating, Jersey Shore alum Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola announced her engagement to boyfriend Christian Biscardi. She shared the news with a candid shot of the proposal on Instagram in early March.
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. 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. The wedding is slated for 2020 and based on some hints from Rodriguez, we expect it to be a destination bash!
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 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!
Scarlett Johannson and Colin Jost
After meeting on the set of Saturday Night Live in 2017 (Johannson hosted an episode that year), the couple decided to take the next step in their relationship this year! Jost popped the question in May and the couple celebrated at a restaurant in upstate New York.
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. 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!
After skipping her formal wedding ceremony in 2017, Elle King got another chance at love this year! The singer announced her boyfriend Jim proposed on her 30th birthday in July.
Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams
Like many celebrities this year, 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 with tacos and tequila—just like their first date!
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.
Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark
A cemetery isn't the most romantic place to get engaged, but for Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder, it was the location of her dreams. Her boyfriend, Beau Clark, took her on a tour of Hollywood Forever Cemetery in L.A. when he surprised the reality star by popping the question. The couple is in the midst of planning a 2020 destination wedding in Europe.
Hayley Paige and Conrad Louis
After years of designing wedding dresses, bridal designer Hayley Paige will finally have her own chance to wear a white gown. Paige got engaged to Conrad Louis over the same. Similar to Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk's proposal, Louis tricked Paige into thinking she was doing a promo shoot for her brand. Instead, he got down on one knee with a custom ring.
Elizabeth Olsen and Robbie Arnett
A few days after the news broke that Elizabeth Olsen got engaged to Robbie Arnett, she was spotted wearing a bright green emerald stone on a diamond band for the first time. We assume she'll walk down the aisle in 2020!
Kristen Wiig and Avi Rotham
Kristen Wiig and Avi Rotham have managed to keep their relationship on the down-low since being spotted vacationing together in 2016. Then in August, news broke that Rotham proposed to Wiig months ago! She debuted an alleged engagement ring in May while on a red carpet but it wasn't until later this summer that the rumors were confirmed!
Cressida Bonas and Harry Wentworth-Stanley
Actress Cressida Bonas, who formerly dated Prince Harry for two years, found true love this year! She announced her engagement to Harry Wentworth-Stanley in mid-August. Bonas attended the royal wedding in 2018, so we wonder if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will land an invite to her nuptials next year!
Jonah Hill and Gianna Santos
Gianna Santos, a beauty content manager, was first seen wearing an engagement ring on Labor Day. Actor Jonah Hill's reps later confirmed the engagement a few days later. The pair has been linked since August 2018 and have spent several holidays together with their families.
Susan Kelechi Watson and Jaime Lincoln Smith
The This Is Us actress announced her engagement to Jaime Lincoln Smith in early September with a selfie featuring her envious ring. The actor proposed with a cushion-cut sapphire set on a diamond band. However, we've come to believe that the engagement happened earlier in the summer since Watson's co-star Mandy Moore revealed that she knew about the news long before Watson made it Insta-official!
Jenny Slate and Ben Shattuck
In September, actress Jenny Slate vacationed in France with boyfriend Ben Shattuck and came back to the States as an engaged woman! The art curator proposed to Slate while on a picnic in southern France. The actress shared the exciting news on Instagram.
Arielle Vandenberg and Matt Cutshall
Love Island host Arielle Vandenberg announced her engagement to former Vine star Matt Cutshall in mid-September. They were friends for years before making their relationship public in 2017.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
On September 26, we found out that another royal wedding is in the works, this time for Princess Beatrice. Buckingham Palace announced the news and an engagement photo was taken by the princess's sister, Princess Eugenie. The proposal occurred early that month while the Princess Beatrice and Mozzi were vacationing in Italy. Their royal wedding is set for 2020, although details haven't been released just yet.
James Middleton and Alizee Thevenet
Brother of future queen Kate Middleton, James Middleton proposed to his girlfriend Alizee Thevenet in October. Middleton presented Thevenet with a ring very similar to his sister's, a square-cut blue stone on a white-gold or platinum band. While their wedding won't necessarily be a royal one, we know that the guest list will be full of royal guests. Middleton might even enlist his niece and nephew Princess Charlotte and Prince George as a wedding attendants!
Ronan Farrow and Jon Lovett
Award-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow used his new book Catch and Kill to propose to his now fiancé Pod Save America host Jon Lovett. The news of their engagement wasn't revealed until October, but we believe the proposal went down earlier in the year.
Adam Devine and Chloe Bridges
After four years of dating, Adam Devine asked actress Chloe Bridges to be his wife in October. While they haven't revealed exactly how the proposal went down, based on the photos they shared on Instagram we can assume Devine popped the question during a sunset boat ride.
Anna Faris and Michael Barrett
While we have no confirmation on whether or not Anna Faris is actually engaged, she was spotted wearing a ring on that finger at the beginning of November. The yellow cushion-cut diamond is most likely an engagement ring from boyfriend Michael Barrett. Now we just have to wait and see if the speculation is true—before the end of 2019!
Manny Jacinto and Dianne Doan
The Good Place actor Manny Jacinto was inspired by his on-screen character, Jason Mendoza, when it came time to propose to girlfriend Dianne Doan. “I was toying when to pop the question for a long time,” said Jacinto, per Vulture in November. “I looked at the Janet/Jason relationship, and there’s a sentence that Jason says to Chidi about relationships and it hit me pretty hard. I thought it was a sign that I needed to do it, and a week later I popped the question.”
Anthony Rapp and Ken Ithipholon
Known for originating the role of Mark Cohen in the hit Broadway musical RENT in 1996, Anthony Rapp proposed to boyfriend Ken Ithipholon in November. Based on Rapp's Instagram announcement, we assume the proposal was pretty low-key. The Star Trek: Discovery actor presented his now-fiancé a thick silver band.
Lamar Odom and Sabrina Parr
Lamar Odom and Sabrina Parr's engagement was a celebrity proposal that no one saw coming this year! But sure enough, there's going to be a new Mrs. Odom in town! The former basketball player proposed to Parr, a health and life coach, while out to dinner in Miami.
Freida Pinto and Cory Tran
Actress Freida Pinto revealed her photographer beau Cory Tran popped the question in November. Tran chose to propose on his birthday and the golden hour photos of the couple were stunning.
Hoda Kotb and Joel Schiffman
Being a television news anchor, it made sense that Hoda Kotb would use the Today Show to announce her engagement! A week before Thanksgiving, Kotb and her longtime boyfriend Joel Schiffman took a romantic vacation to Mexico where he proposed! Kotb surprised her co-anchors by showing off her sparkly new diamond on live television!
Tinsley Mortimer and Scott Kluth
The first celebrity holiday-themed proposal of the year came from Tinsley Mortimer and boyfriend Scott Kluth. Kluth proposed to the Real Housewives of New York City star on the streets of Chicago while Christmas carolers serenaded the couple.
Clayton Snyder and Allegra Edwards
All of our childhood dreams were crushed when we learned actor Clayton Snyder proposed to his girlfriend Allegra Edwards on Thanksgiving. He played heartthrob Ethan Craft on the hit Disney show Lizzie McGuire many moons ago and while we're sad we didn't land Craft himself, he and Edwards look beyond happy!
Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev
In January 2020, WWE star Nikki Bella revealed that she has been engaged to boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev since November. The proposal was quite romantic, going down in a French mansion filled with roses (a string quartet even played in the background!). The couple first met as partners on Dancing With The Stars in 2017, but at the time, Bella was engaged to WWE star John Cena.
Emma Stone and Dave McCary
With less than a month left in 2019, we're adding another celebrity wedding to our 2020 list! Saturday Night Live writer Dave McCary revealed he proposed to actress Emma Stone via an Instagram selfie of Stone showing off her new diamond on December 4. Although the pair sparked engagement rumors back in April when she was seen wearing a ring on her left hand, we finally have confirmation that the couple is tying the knot!
Nick Young and Keonna Green
On Christmas morning, NBA player Nick Young proposed to girlfriend Keonna Green. She showed off her new cushion-cut diamond in an Instagram post and Young said the proposal was "long overdue."
Toni Garrn and Alex Pettyfer
Supermodel Toni Garrn and Magic Mike actor Alex Pettyfer also got engaged on Christmas in 2019. However, the couple waited a full week to announce the news with the world. Pettyfer presented his fiancée with a three-stone engagement ring featuring a large emerald cut diamond ring flanked by two smaller diamond and set on a gold band.
Alex Honnold and Sanni McCandless
Rock climber Alex Honnold proposed to girlfriend Sanni McCandless on Christmas Day. Based on his Instagram announcement, we assume the proposal occurred outside, which is quite fitting for the adventure-seeking couple! McCandless's newest accessory? A delicate silver engagement ring.
Danielle Brooks and Dennis Gelin
After welcoming a baby girl together in November, Danielle Brooks's boyfriend Dennis Gelin proposed to the Orange Is The New Black actress on New Year's Eve. To announce the news, Brooks wrote, "I never thought one of the best days of my year would happen the last week of the year" on Instagram, while showing off her new diamond ring.

2019 didn't end without a proposal for supermodel Natalia Vodianova and boyfriend Antoine Arnault, who is the CEO of Berluti.

Can’t wait to celebrate next year with our loved ones," she wrote, alluding to a 2020 wedding!
Wilmer Valderrama and Amanda Pacheco

Martha Hunt and Jason McDonald
While vacationing in the Bahamas after the new year, photographer Jason McDonald popped the question to Victoria's Secret model Martha Hunt on January 5.

Jennifer Gates, the daughter of billionaire Bill Gates, got engaged to equestrian Nayel Nassar during a ski trip at the end of January. Nassar popped the question to the 23-year-old Stanford graduate on top of a snowy mountain with what appeared to be a very large three-stone diamond ring!
Supermodel Jourdan Dunn kicked off February 2020 with a new ring on her finger. The model announced she is engaged to her boyfriend, whom she met last year, on Instagram. And although her fiancé's identity is a mystery, we do know Dunn will soon be Mrs. Hamilton!
Sienna Miller and Lucas Zwirner
After just a year of dating, actress Sienna Miller and boyfriend Lucas Zwirner are making things official. A source confirmed their engagement in February and since Miller's sister, Savannah, is a bridal designer, we can already guess they'll collaborate on her wedding gown! Until then, we'll just be waiting to see Miller's new bling.
Jason Lewis and Liz Godwin
On February 14, 2020, Sex and the City actor Jason Lewis revealed that he proposed to long-time girlfriend Liz Godwin just before the holiday season in 2019!
