Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly announced their engagement in two Instagram posts on Wednesday, January 12.

The 35-year-old actress and the 31-year-old musician, whose real name is Colson Baker, said that they became engaged the previous day under a banyan tree surrounded by candles.

Fox posted an intimate video of the proposal, which has over 16 million views at the time of writing, recalling that they sat beneath that tree in July 2020 and “asked for magic”.


“We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time,” the post’s caption continued. “Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.”

She added that after a year and a half of “having walked through hell together” and a lot of laughter, Kelly asked her 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,” she wrote.

Kelly shared details about the ring in a video with over eight million views at the time of writing. He acknowledged that “ tradition is one ring”, but revealed that he designed it with jeweller Stephen Webster to reflect their birthstones – an emerald to represent Fox, and a diamond to represent himself.

He added that the gems were “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”.

Speaking to Vogue in a story published on Wednesday, Webster said Kelly wanted to create a custom ring that was “completely original and meaningful to both Megan and himself”.

The jewellery designer added that Kelly fed him “lots of material in an almost lyrical form”, which inspired the dual gem design. He told Vogue that it was “possibly the most romantic story I have had to work with.”

Posting to his business’s Instagram account on Thursday, January 13, Webster congratulated the couple and revealed that the ring was created in 18 karat white gold, pavé set with colourless natural diamonds. He added: “The diamond is a D colour antique cut and the emerald an extraordinary completely untreated Columbian gem.”

Kathryn Money, senior vice-president of merchandising and retail at Brilliant Earth, estimated that Fox’s ring cost between US$300,000 to US$400,000 “depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the centre and side stones”.

She added that the ring has a “toi et moi, or you and me” style where two gemstones are set side by side, “designed to symbolise two souls becoming one”. The silhouette has also been seen on Ariana Grande and Emily Ratajkowski.

Insider reported that Fox and Kelly first met in March 2020 while filming in Puerto Rico for Midnight in the Switchgrass. At the time, Fox was still married to her husband of 10 years, Brian Austin Green, but rumours of their separation began in May 2020.

According to Page Six, the couple appeared to confirm their relationship on June 16, 2020, when Kelly tweeted a lyric from his song Bloody Valentine.

Representatives for Fox and Kelly did not immediately respond to request for comment.
