Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp may be joining a long list of celebrity couples who took the engagement plunge in 2018, but they are undoubtedly the funniest pair to do so—if their announcement is any indication.

On Thursday, the beloved actress took to Instagram to share the happy news, posting a silly, personal and, shall we dare say, amateur, drawing of the pair. In the goofy pic, a disheveled Ryan reaches for a balding Mellencamp's hand, as he holds a guitar in the other hand. (The artist clearly took some artistic liberties, considering Ryan, 56, and Mellencamp, 67, look as good as ever.) Ryan simply captioned the image, "ENGAGED!" letting the picture speak for itself.

Reports of the couple's engagement began circulating when Ryan stepped out on Wednesday sporting a gold and diamond ring—some publications even took the rings to symbolize a recent secret wedding between the two. But it seems Ryan wanted to quickly shut down those rumors, clarifying her relationship status on social media a day later.

The engagement between the singer and actress is a long time coming; the couple dated for three years before calling it off in 2014 due to "distance," according to People. They rekindled their romance in the spring of 2017, People adds.

This is Ryan's second marriage; she was previously married to actor Dennis Quaid for a decade before splitting in 2001 and they share two kids. Mellencamp has had three previous marriages, most recently to Elaine Irwin, before they ended things in 2011. (Mellencamp has five kids from previous relationships.) The singer was then linked to supermodel Christie Brinkley for over a year.
