Romantic-comedy queen Meg Ryan has a love story straight out of one of her movies. The actress confirmed Thursday she is engaged to rocker John Mellencamp. “Engaged!” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a sketch of herself and Mellencamp holding hands.
The two have been photographed together since 2011. According to E! News, they started dating that year, but broke up and got back together several times before getting engaged this year. After one of their breakups, Mellencamp dated Christie Brinkley for a year before the two called it quits last summer.
Earlier this year rumors swirled the two were getting married when they seemed to be planning an event, but Ryan’s representative denied they were tying the knot. Hours before her announcement, paparazzi caught Ryan wearing an engagement ring.
Ryan was previously married to Dennis Quaid, and the two have a son, Jack. She also adopted a daughter, Daisy. Mellencamp has been married three times, including to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, and has five children. Teddi shared Ryan’s announcement on her Instagram Stories Thursday, according to Us Weekly, and accompanied it with pink hearts.
