Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom: these star couples got engaged this year, proving that 2019 is the year of love. They’re not the only ones to put a ring on it, as a bevy of celebrities also said yes to proposals this year. Whether they were only together for a few months or their love was years in the making, these are some of the couples who agreed to a forever romance this year.
Lopez and Rodriguez only needed two years together before they knew they found the one. The MLB star popped the question while the couple vacationed together in the Bahamas. He gave the “Jenny On The Block” singer an emerald cut diamond big enough to put an eye out. No date yet for the wedding, but if the ring is anything to go by, it’s going to be an extravagant affair.
Perry and her on-again-off-again love Bloom first got together back in 2016 before taking a break from the relationship in 2017. The next year, however, proved that once they got the timing right, this lovestruck couple was ready for the long run. Bloom proposed on Valentine’s Day with a gorgeous flower shaped ring. The pop singer and the actor are rumored to be planning a wedding for early next year, but time will tell.
Emma Stone found love in a funny place when she met Dave McCary while hosting Saturday Night Live near the end of 2016. McCary, a segment director and writer for the show, directed one of the sketches featuring Stone and, apparently, they made quite an impression on one another. By October 2017, the couple had been dating for several months. This December, McCary asked the actress to marry her and she agreed. No word yet on a wedding date, but it’s still early days.
A surprising entry to this list is NBA star and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom. Odom asked health and life coach Sabrina Parr to marry him in November and she said yes. The couple had only been dating for about three months when they got engaged, which makes sense when you remember that Odom and Kardashian had only dated for a month before they got married.
Second time’s the charm for Marvel actress Elizabeth Olsen. The actress and her boyfriend of three years, musician Robbie Arnett, have gotten engaged. This is the second engagement for Olsen, who was first engaged to Narcos star Boyd Holbrook before she broke off that relationship in 2014.
Scarlett Johansson and beau of two years Colin Jost, who hosts Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update,” are engaged to be wed. The star of the upcoming Marvel movie Black Widow is ready to tie the knot for the third time. Her first marriage was to Ryan Reynolds, and her second marriage was with Romain Dauriac, with whom she shares four-year-old daughter. This will be Jost’s first marriage.
2019 has been a magical year for all things love, though some celebs like Miley Cyrus and Bradley Cooper might disagree. They were among the celebrities who split from their significant others this year. Regardless, there should be plenty to look forward to in 2020 if these couples can make it for the long haul.
