Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox got engaged after dating for a year and a half

On Jan. 11, Machine Gun Kelly proposed to Megan Fox. The two stars have been dating since spring 2020 when they got together on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass.

Fox and Machine Gun Kelly shared intimate details of the proposal on social media. The musician’s Instagram post announcing the engagement was a video clip of Fox’s hand flashing her engagement ring, a pear-shaped diamond and emerald set on a double band encrusted with diamonds. 

“I know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love. 1-11-2022 ✨,” Machine Gun Kelly wrote in the caption. 

He proposed to Fox underneath a Banyan tree, which is significant in their relationship. The Transformers star’s voice is heard on the track “banyan tree (interlude)” from Machine Gun Kelly’s 2020 album Tickets to my Downfall, and they both referenced the tree in their engagement announcement. 

Fox mentioned her twin flame connection with Machine Gun Kelly by ending her Instagram announcement with, “And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes. …and then we drank each other’s blood 1.11.22 ✨”
