We think it's safe to say that Idina Menzel #won this weekend. The singer debuted her new album, "idina." on Friday. Then, that night, her boyfriend, actor Aaron Lohr, popped the question with a gorgeous engagement ring, which Menzel debuted Saturday night on the iHeartRadio Music Festival red carpet in Las Vegas.
She thanked her fans Friday by tweeting to them about the album. Not much later, she sent out another tweet: "As if this week couldn't get any better I have wonderful news…my man and I are engaged! We are so happy. It's a beautiful time."
What an incredible week. Thank you to everyone for all your support with the album.— Idina Menzel (@idinamenzel) September 23, 2016

The $30,000 Brilliant Earth ring is "vintage-inspired and features a 2-carat round diamond with tapered baguettes set in platinum," style expert Lauren McCawley told E! News. On the red carpet, Menzel wore all black, allowing the stunner to sparkle.
Menzel and Lohr first came out as a couple at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in April 2015, but they have actually known each other for much longer. They co-starred in the 2005 film adaptation of Rent and have both been in Broadway for a long time.
