On Wednesday, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly announced on Instagram that they have gotten engaged after a little more than a year of dating. “In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree,” said the Transformers actress, 35, in the caption of a video of the proposal. “We asked for magic. 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.”
“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,” she continued. “And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes.”
We all hoped that it had ended there. But of course, it didn’t. Following their long tradition of over-sharing, Fox described how the couple celebrated their new engagement… in quite an unorthodox way: “…and then we drank each other’s blood. 1.11.22 ✨”
In his own post, Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, shared a photo of Fox’s diamond and emerald engagement ring, writing, “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.”
“I know tradition is one ring, but I designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birthstone) and the diamond (my birthstone) 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 ✨,” he explained.
The pair met while filming her movie Midnight in the Switchgrass. They made their relationship Instagram official last summer after Megan appeared in his "Bloody Valentine" music video.
In their first interview as a couple, Megan Fox called Kelly her "twin flame" and said that they had an instant connection on set.
We expect nothing less weird, bizarre, overly-shared than this engagement announcement from Fox and Kelly. Given their history, we’re due for even more strange headlines than this one.
