Congratulations are in order to Lily Collins and Charlie McDowell, who have just announced that they’re engaged!
On Friday September 25, the 31-year-old actress took to Instagram to share the happy news, writing that she was experiencing the “purest joy” after McDowell popped the question during a recent trip to New Mexico.
In the photos posted, McDowell got down on one knee while the pair were surrounding by a picturesque canyon.
McDowell, who previously dated Emilia Clarke and Rooney Mara, had some sweet words to say about his future bride.
“In a time of uncertainty and darkness you have illuminated my life,” he wrote.
We were also blessed with a close-up shot of the Emily In Paris star’s unique engagement ring.
According to WP Diamonds, the ring features a two-to-three carat morganite center stone, set in a diamond halo with a brushed gold band.
The couple first confirmed their romance in August 2019 when Collins, who previously dated her Mortal Instruments co-star Jamie Campbell Bower, made things Instagram official, posting a photo of the couple in Paris.
In an Instagram birthday tribute, Collins gushed about her now fiancé, writing:
“You’ve opened my eyes and deepened my heart. You constantly inspire me to dream big and go outside of my comfort zone. Every day is an adventure with you, and I can’t wait to explore more of the world together (when we can). I love you so much.”
No further details have been shared regarding the wedding, but we’d bet on the bride-to-be’s father Phil Collins performing.
