People meet several romantic partners throughout their lives, but only a few get engaged and fewer people get to walk down the aisle. Getting engaged, married, then lasting until death seems an impossible feat for celebrities. Still, it’s fun to reminisce the relationship all throughout—the smiles, the sadness, the anger, and everything in between. And once you went through all these in your relationship and realized that you would do it all over again with the same person, then it’s time to put a ring on it.
Celebrities sometimes find love within the showbiz circle or outside of it. Being in the former can be tough since all eyes are on you—you rarely have private moments together without being hounded by the paparazzi. Nevertheless, these celebrities have been recently engaged, and are looking forward to getting married.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
The pair first met in 2020, on the set of Midnight In The Switchgrass. The couple kept in contact ever since, posting pictures of them together on their respective Instagram accounts. On January 11, 2022, the couple got engaged with Megan wearing a two-stone bridal engagement ring. Megan penned a message on Instagram about her engagement with Machine Gun Kelly.
Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell

Audra Mari and Josh Duhamel
American actor, Josh Duhamel popped the question to his partner, American model, Audri Mari at a beach through a message in the bottle. Josh posted the picture of them holding the message on Instagram last January 9. The couple has been dating since 2019, and Fergie has been previously married to singer Fergie.
Harry McNally and Sasha Spielberg
Sasha Spielberg, the daughter of famous American director, Steven Spielberg is now engaged to director and actor Harry McNally. The engagement was announced excitedly by Harry’s father on Instagram. Harry allegedly proposed to Sasha on New Year’s Eve.
What It Means to Get Engaged
Engagement is the step before marriage, but before you decide to be engaged to each other, you must be certain that this is the person whom you want to be with for the rest of your life. Being engaged and eventually married to someone is a lifelong commitment, and it’s not something that you can back out if you dislike where things are going. Before you pop the question, you must sit down and talk with your significant other regarding your expectations as spouses, financial matters, parenting styles, etc. These things must be discussed openly because they can get controversial as time goes on.
It’s uncomfortable, but it’s better than discovering that you are incompatible when both of you are married already. Withholding things like these can cause misunderstanding and resentment until you have enough angst to warrant divorce. So, purge all the negative opinions that may raise an eyebrow to get it out of the way.
Engagement and Marriage Are Not for Everyone
There are people who find the whole engagement and marriage scheme undesirable. They are content with being single for the rest of their lives, and that is okay. Just because people are socially pressured to get married at a certain age, doesn’t mean that they have to. They feel more empowered alone than being in a marriage. This is acceptable because think of all the possible babies that would be born and that being a parent was never in their plans. It will end badly.
It’s a common notion that some celebrity marriages do not last long because of several reasons. This rings true in some, but it’s actually the compatibility of your partner and you, and the drive to fix things when they are still fixable. Failed marriages usually stem from marriages in haste and giving into temptation. So, don’t give in to your emotions on the spot, but tread carefully. There is no deadline as to when you should get married, and it’s okay if you take your time.
A lot of people will say that celebrities who recently got engaged will not last long because they are in fact, celebrities. What these people should remember is that people only see what celebrities want the public to see. In short, people know nothing about what happens behind the scenes, when the camera is no longer on them, and when the glamor no longer shines.
