Kate Bosworth and Justin Long arguably have one of the sweetest romances in Hollywood, and they often declare their love for one another with touching Instagram tributes. Now, the couple is apparently ready to take the next step in their relationship. Earlier this week, InStyle reported that the duo were officially engaged. Now, a source is telling People that the Blue Crush star “can’t wait” to marry Long. “Kate is just the happiest,” the insider says. “She can’t wait to marry him, They are very cute together. Kate has this amazing energy around Justin. She is just beaming.”

When the couple graced the red carpet together on March 10, 2023, for the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, the actress debuted a diamond ring on her left hand, which sparked speculation that they were engaged. Although Bosworth and Long never confirmed the rumors, a source told Entertainment Tonight on March 16, 2023, that they are going to hear wedding bells soon. “They are both thrilled, and their loved ones are incredibly happy for them," the insider revealed. "They make an amazing couple, and they're so excited."

The duo first started spending time together in 2021 while filming House of Darkness. In March of 2022, fans wondered whether the two were dating after they were spotted spending time with one another in Los Angeles. A week later, the Tusk actor admitted on The Viall Files podcast that he found the one, although he never mentioned Bosworth’s name. “I want to, but I also want to be protective,” he said at the time. “I want to scream it from the rooftops, but I also want to be protective. It's sacred.”

The pair seemingly confirmed their relationship while kissing on a beach in Hawaii, and then, the following month, they were walking the streets of New York City, linking arms. Around the same time, Long opened up about his relationship on a podcast episode for Dear Chelsea, revealing that he’s in love. Again, he concealed his partner’s name. “There’s something about it for me that I feel like I need to protect and keep sacred because it feels sacred,” he admitted. “I’ve never had anything like this before. I’ve never experienced this, so it’s something I want to protect and keep, you know?”

The duo finally made their relationship Instagram official later that month when Long posted a photo of the two of them sharing a beer. Bosworth commented, “I'm the luckiest. 🍀✨😘.” Since then, the couple has been more public with their partnership. On June 2, 2022, in honor of Long’s 44th birthday, Bosworth stated that she’s in love. “You were born today and the world lit up brighter than it had known and years later you met a girl who’s life was disassembled / rearranged but you were patient and with time she fell in love now she has a glow (one that was forgotten long ago) she is so grateful *more than you’ll ever know 💛,” she wrote. “Happy Birthday @justinlong you make me smile so big my face hurts xx Thank you for creating peace in my heart since the day we met.” Long commented on the post, “Loving you is easily the best gift I’ve ever received 🎁💛💛💛.”

Long returned the sentiment on January 2, 2023, for Bosworth’s 40th birthday by writing a list of attributes he admires about the actress. “She is also the best part of my day, everyday - even when we’re not together,” his caption began. “She laughs with abandon. She makes me laugh the same - all the time. She sees beauty everywhere and in everyone. She thanks everyone - even when she’s suffering, she’s kind. She was grateful to the nurses while she was in true pain. She is deeply compassionate and can’t hurt anyone but she can be a rascal. She loves to tease. She has the best softest lips I’ve ever kissed. She loves beer and football more than I do (and I love beer and football).”
