Cause for celebration! The celebrity engagements of 2022 include Megan Fox, Machine Gun Kelly, Josh Duhamel and more stars who put a ring on it (or got a ring put on) this year, and we can’t wait to see these weddings.

Of course, the celebrity engagements of 2022 come after a year of star-studded engagements the year before from famous couples like Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker; Britney Spears and Sam Asghari; and Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers. Kardashian and Barker, who started dating in December 2020, announced their engagement in October 2021 with photos and videos from Barker’s proposal at a beach in Montecito, California. A source told People at the time that the proposal was a “complete surprise” to Kardashian. “It was a complete surprise for Kourtney. Travis told her family that he planned to propose, but everyone was great at keeping it secret,” the insider said. “The Rosewood is their favorite for short weekend getaways. They often stay at the hotel. This is why Travis proposed there. It’s a very special place to them, but it was also easier to keep everything a secret by proposing there,” the insider said.

The source continued, “It was a very romantic beach proposal at sunset. Travis took Kourtney for a walk, and you could tell that she wasn’t sure what was going on when she saw all the roses on the beach. Red and white roses were shaped into a heart. There were a lot of candles. They both looked very happy.”

Rodgers announced his engagement to Woodley, whom he started dating in 2020, at an NFL Honors broadcast in February 2021. “2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing, memorable moments, 180 straight days of having my nose hair scraped, playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season. I got engaged and I played some of the best football in my career,” Rodgers said at the time before thanking his “fiancée,” Woodley.

But that was 2021. Read on for the celebrity engagements of 2022 and which stars are set to walk down the aisle in the near future. These diamond ring photos will make your jaws drop.

Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly got engaged on January 11, 2022. MGK, whose real name is Colson Baker, announced the news in an Instagram video of Fox showing off her diamond ring, which included an emerald (her birth stone), a diamond (his birth stone) and two magnetic bands of thorns. “‘yes, in this life and every life’ 💍 beneath the same branches we fell in love under, i brought her back to ask her to marry me,” MGK captioned the post. “know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love. 1-11-2022 ✨”

Fox, for her part, also announced the engagement on her Instagram with a video of MGK’s proposal, which saw him get down on one knee in front of a banyan tree that has a special significance to them. “In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic,”she wrote in the caption. “We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.”

She continued, “Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes. …and then we drank each other’s blood 1.11.22 ✨”

Fox’s engagement came less than two years after her split from her ex-husband, Brian Austin Green, in May 2020, the same month she was linked to MGK, whom she met on the set of the movie, Midnight in the Switchgrass. Fox—who shares kids Noah, Bodhi and Journey with Green—filed for divorce in November 2020. The two finalized their divorce in October 2021.
