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 still obsessing over Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz's romantic engagement, which 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!
Paris Hilton and Carter Reum
After a year of dating the entrepreneur and DJ is engaged to her boyfriend Carter Reum! The couple got engaged on Saturday, Feb. 13 during Hilton's 40th birthday celebrations.
"When you find your soulmate, you don’t just know it. You feel it," she wrote on Instagram. "My love & I have been together since our first date, and for my birthday, he arranged a special trip to tropical paradise. As we walked to dinner along the beach, Carter led us to a cabana adorned with flowers and dropped to one knee. I said yes, yes to forever There’s no one I’d rather spend forever with."
The gorgeous ring was designed by Jean Dousset (the great-grandson of Louis Cartier). After he got down on one knee, family members, including Nicky Hilton and Courtney Reum, joined the couple for an intimate celebration.
Adam Rippon And Boyfriend Jussi-Pekka Kajaala
Olympic Skater Adam Rippon and his boyfriend Jussi-Pekka Kajaala are engaged! The two proposed to each other while at Kajaala's native Finland.
"I'm excited to marry JP because he's just the best," Rippon told People in a statement. "He's kind, he's funny, and he's just as beautiful on the inside as he is on the out (which is a lot). He's my cheerleader and I'm his. I just love him a lot."
The two started dating in 2018 after meeting on dating app Tinder. "We didn't have the chance to see each other for most of 2020," Rippon said. "The engagement was something we had talked about earlier so when I was finally able to get to Finland this November we felt like it would be the perfect time."
Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley
Super Bowl weekend got a dose of romance when the NFL's 2020 MVP Aaron Rodgers announced he's engaged to Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley! Appearing at the NFL Honors broadcast to accept the prestigious award, the Green Bay Packers quarterback confirmed he's engaged and thanked his whole family, including his fiancée. "It's an honor to win this award for the third time. 2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and growth, some amazing memorable moments. 180 straight days of having my nose hair scraped, playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season," he said, before adding: "I got engaged."
And Woodley confirmed the engagement to Rodgers during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 22.
"We are engaged," she told Fallon. "But for us, it's not new news. It's kind of funny everybody right now is freaking out over it, and we're like, 'yeah, we've been engaged for a while.'" She added that she's not much of a football person, and she hasn't been to any of his games yet.
"We met during this whacky, whacky time and all the stadiums were closed that he was playing in, so I have yet to go to a football game," she said. "I didn't really grow up with sports, especially American sports. It was never really on my radar. When we met, also, I knew he was a football guy, but I didn't know like what kind of a football guy he was. And I'm still constantly learning."
She jokingly added that this isn't who she pictured herself ending up with. "I never thought I'd be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living."
The Fault In Our Stars actress also showed off her new, gorgeous ring during her time on Fallon. It appears to be a round center stone (and a fairly large one at that) in a white-gold setting.
Now just one question, do we think all the Big Little Lies cast will be in attendance at the wedding??
Kevin Love and Kate Bock
NBA star Kevin Love proposed to his girlfriend Kate Bock. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model took to Instagram to share the exciting news.

Marta shared the same photos with a bonus third one, writing in her native Portuguese, "This is another chapter of the story that we are writing together."
For those who don't keep up with international soccer stars, Marta is considered one of the greatest female soccer players of all time. To prove it, she has scored the most goals at FIFA Women's World Cup tournaments with 17 and she's also the first player—female or male—to score at five World Cups. Not to mention, she's won the heart of one very special teammate that she can now call her fiancé.

Del Rey was spotted wearing a ring on that finger on multiple occasions, including the Dec. 14 episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The news comes eight months after Del Rey's split from Sean "Sticks" Larkin.
While it's hard to get a super clear look at her ring, Kathryn Money, Brilliant Earth’s SVP in Merchandising & Retail Expansion tells Brides what she estimate the ring’s size, carat weight, and price to be.
“This ring falls right in line with the current chunky styles we see trending in jewelry," says Money. "Based on what we can see, Lana’s ring appears to be an estimated 2 carat princess cut center gem set on a wide band diamond adorned bypass ring with an additional 3-5 carats of diamonds." She adds that the estimated cost of a ring like this is a whopping $30,000-$45,000, depending on quality and other characteristics of the center stone, of course.

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.
“I told Kay I had an idea to create something not only for our special moment but something other LGBTQ+ couples might be inspired by for their rings too. The idea of the ring, in general, is really special because at its core it’s symbolic. It’s symbolic of the union between two people and its symbolic of what the relationship is to those two people.," said Vaughan of the unique rings..
