When it comes to celebrity news, is there really anything more delightful (and, often—in the case of reality-TV stars—delightfully *extra*) than when a public figure pops the big question? From Chance the Rapper’s Fourth of July proposal to Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind romance, these are the 2018 celeb engagements we are currently obsessed with. Fingers crossed for v. public weddings so we can enjoy the fun right along with them, yes?
Gina Rodriguez and Joe LoCicero
Gina Rodriguez is getting hitched, y’all! The actress confirmed her engagement to longtime beau Joe LoCicero in an interview with Us Weekly on August 7, saying, “I have a very, very special man in my life. I am engaged.” She later told People that the two have been engaged for over a month and they’ve kept it a secret for quite some time.
Engagement rumours were sparked when Rodriguez, 34, posted photos—both solo and with her 31-year-old beau—on her Instagram *and* Instagram stories, showing off a giant rock on her ring finger. The lovebirds met on the set of Jane The Virgin when he played a stripper (true love can happen anywhere, people).
We’re bursting with joy for the newly-engaged couple, though we’re also more than a little sad *we* aren’t the ones marrying the freaking gem that is Gina. Sigh.
