A day does not go by without at least one reported celebrity engagement. Stars are known for their elaborate lifestyles and an engagement, an important event that it is, does not go by unnoticed and unshared with the public.
In the age of digital sharing with millions of fans, many stars have resorted to popular social networks, most notably Twitter and Facebook, to reveal their new relationship status. And, of course, this revelation usually comes with photo evidence of the bling. Yes, it’s about the love, but it’s also about the size – of the ring.
Latest in this grouping is actress Jamie-Lyn Sigler who just announced the acceptance of a proposal from her boyfriend of one year, pro-baseball player Cutter Dykstra.
“So this just happened…” , Tweeted Sigler, 31, accompanied by a photo of her, her baller beau and the startling sparkler adoring her ring finger. She looked shocked. The public, not so much.
Other newly engaged celebs that shared their precious private bliss with us are Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell (who are also expecting their first child together), Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez and Kelly Osborne and her chef boyfriend Matthew Mosshart, have reportedly been secretly engaged for about a month.
The long awaited moment we all held our breath for: Jennifer Aniston accepted a proposal from fellow actor Justin Theroux, who proposed to his loved one on his birthday, celebrating with a bang, along with the bling. After seven years of togetherness and six children, Aniston’s ex, Brad Pitt is confirmed to be engaged to his lady love, Angelina Jolie. Glad to know all that has worked out.
Let’s not forget the big announcement of longtime-unlucky-in-love songstress Kelly Clarkson, who was nothing short of elated when she received a yellow canary diamond ring from her main man, Brandon Blackstock.
Kate Bosworth and director Michael Polish were a bit more quiet about their big news, but the actress let it slip in a travel diary entry on Vogue.com, where she referred her beau as her fiancé.
Another young actress that is the longing of many, Keira Knightley, is also spoken for as of late. She is engaged to James Righton of UK indie rock back The Klaxons.
We offer our sincerest congratulations to all the happy couples.
They’ve certainly put a ring on it.
Now, do we hear wedding bells or will some other sounds precede them?
