Congratulations are in order for Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp, who just confirmed their official engagement. The You've Got Mail actress shared the happy news on Instagram with a cartoon drawing of the couple, complete with a simple, but celebratory caption: "ENGAGED!"
The tell-tale illustration was just as sweet. It depicts the bride-to-be reaching for her future groom's hand—an appropriate metaphor for their impending union. The actress made the announcement just hours after she was photographed wearing an engagement ring, which appears to be a circular stone set in a yellow gold band, while she was out and about in New York City.
Ryan and Mellencamp aren't the only ones who are excited about their future nuptials. The "Jack and Diane" singer's eldest child, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave (of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fame) was quick to respond to Ryan's post with several heart emojis. The reality TV star then shared Ryan's post on her Instagram Stories to spread the news.
The actress and singer's engagement marks a significant moment in their relationship's history. According to People, the couple dated for three years before deciding to separate in 2014. They reportedly resumed their relationship in 2017 and have been frequently seen and photographed together ever since. The outlet also reports that both Ryan and Mellencamp have made a concerted effort to blend their families by going on several family dates (a sign of their future together, perhaps?). Those family excursions have included everything from attending sports games (their crew was spotted at a New York Knicks basketball game last year) to spending Christmas Day together.
