Celebrity Engagements

Monday, October 16, 2017

IT LOOKS like 2017 is a good year to be engaged. Here are 14 pairs of celebrities who proudly got engaged this year. And with a couple of months left before the year ends, there is still time for others to join the bandwagon. Who will get engaged next?

Kit Harington & Rose Leslie

They fell in love on the set of “Game of Thrones.” But while Jon Snow and Ygritte’s love story did not survive the fourth season, the real-life love story of Kit Harington and Rose Leslie did. The couple formally announced their engagement in the newspaper late last month. They have been together since 2012. While Harington did not say when the wedding will take place, he did mention in the “Jonathan Ross Show” that he asked “Game of Thrones” producers to pause filming of the final season so the people involved in the show can attend the wedding. But any fan would know that a wedding involving “Game of Thrones” is not going to be pretty—just kidding!

Kirsten Dunst & Jesse Plemons

Kirsten Dunst sure knows how to make lemonade when life throws lemons. The actress got engaged to her “Fargo” co-star Jesse Plemons at the start of the year. She said that she was in sweats when Plemons proposed to her because she was sick. “I was a little sick when (he proposed), which was funny. But that’s good. Sickness and in health, you know…” she told late-night host Jimmy Fallon.

Ai Ai Delas Alas & Gerald Sibayan

Ai Ai delas Alas wants to give marriage another try. She got engaged to much-younger boyfriend Gerald Sibayan early this year. Sibayan, 23, popped the question through a Starbucks frappucino cup where instead of a name, there appeared the question: “Will you be my misis?” Delas Alas, 52, said yes. The couple are practicing celibacy until their wedding in December.

Richard Gutierrez & Sarah Lahbati

With the backdrop of the snowy Zermatt town in Switzerland, Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez, who are already parents to four-year-old Zion, got engaged. They have been together since 2012. According to Preview magazine, Gutierrez proposed in Zermatt because it was there that Lahbati was born and where she stayed while pregnant with Zion.

Eliza Dushku & Peter Palandjian

Not to be outdone, Dunst’s “Bring It On” co-star Eliza Dushku also got engaged this year to her older beau Peter Palandjian.

Katie Cassidy & Matthew Rodgers

Katie Cassidy returned to work on the new season of “Arrow” with a new accessory: an engagement ring. Cassidy, who plays Black Siren on “Arrow,” said yes to non-showbiz boyfriend-turned-fiance Matthew Rodgers in June.

Colton Haynes & Jeff Leatham

In March, floral designer Jeff Leatham (far left) proposed to actor Colton Haynes with the help of legendary singer Cher. In May, the “Arrow” actor returned the favor and proposed back to Leatham.

Tiera Skovbye & Jameson Parker

Just like Cassidy, Tiera Skovbye returned to work with an engagement ring. During the “Riverdale” hiatus, Skovbye, 22, said yes to the marriage proposal of childhood friend and long-time boyfriend Jameson Parker. Skovbye plays Polly Copper in the teen show, which had its second season premiere last week.

Felicity Jones & Charles Guard

Oscar-nominated actress Felicity Jones got engaged to director boyfriend Charles Guard last May. The two are not known to flaunt their relationship in public.

Iza Calzado & Ben Wintle

It is said that Tagaytay holds a very special place in Iza Calzado’s heart because of her father. Entrepreneur Ben Wintle remembered that all too well as it was in the same place where he asked the actress if they can “eat and dance together forever” last Oct. 8. And she said yes!

Miles Teller & Keleigh Sperry

If Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati had Switzerland, and Iza Calzado and Ben Wintle had Tagaytay, Miles Teller and Keleigh Sperry had South Africa. The “Whiplash” actor asked for Sperry’s hand in marriage while on a safari.

Rachelle Ann Go & Martin Spies

Broadway star Rachelle Ann Go proudly announced her engagement to American boyfriend Martin Spies on Instagram last month. Go admitted that on her 31st birthday last Aug. 31, she prayed that she will soon marry her businessman boyfriend. Just eight days later, Spies proposed.

Holly Marie Combs & Mark

Holly Marie Combs is hoping that the third time’s the charm. She had been married twice before but hopefully, her non-showbiz boyfriend, who was only identified as Mark, will give her the happy ever after the “Charmed” star is looking for.

Quentin Tarantino & Daniella Pick

At 54, Quentin Tarantino has never been married. Perhaps he has been looking his entire life for Israeli model and singer Daniella Pick, 33. The two met when Tarantino premiered his movie “Inglourious Basterds” in Israel in 2009. They have been in an on-and-off relationship since.
