Seeing a celebrity forget his or her underwear? Old news. Another celebrity divorce? What’s new? Oh, another award show? I’ll DVR that. But seeing a celebrity is engaged to … who?!
We’ve all had that moment where we’re doing our thing and some notification pops up letting us know a well-known celebrity and another celebrity are engaged. However, some are more surprising than others mainly because of the three following reasons (I’m assuming): we never saw it coming, didn’t know the two were dating or we definitely thought the two were going to eventually break up.
Let’s take Emma Roberts and Evan Peters for example. Raise your hand if you ever saw this coming. Any takers? Nope, didn’t think so. Don’t get me wrong, the two make a lovely couple but I never even knew my favorite Unfabulous chick was dating someone. Either I was living under a rock or they were REALLY good at hiding their PDA. The two met during the filming of Adult World and in an interview during Chelsea Lately, Emma revealed that Evan was looking nowhere in her direction. Well Emma, that’s all changed.
Emma and Evan aren’t the only surprising engagements in the industry. Here are just a few of the shocking celebrity engagements:
Naya Rivera & Big Sean
The couple were together for only six months before rapper Big Sean decided to get down on one knee and ask the big question. Naya revealed to Access Hollywood that the two met through Twitter! Love is out there guys, in 140 characters or less.
Johnny Depp & Amber Heard
Just when we thought the man could never be tied down, he goes and surprises us earlier this year! The couple met during the filming of The Rum Diary and officially began dating in 2012. The real reason why this is shocking? Johnny was dating French actress Vanessa Paradis fourteen years prior to this relationship! (Perez Hilton) At least things are civil between the three of them!
Zayn Malik & Perrie Edwards
The hearts of millions of Zayn lovers died a little when news broke that the One Direction singer had popped the question to Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards. The two are still in the process of figuring out when the big day will even be considering they’re both currently occupied with their separate music careers. Perrie is currently on tour opening up for Demi Lovato and Zayn will soon be with One Direction on their stadium tour.
Matt Dallas & Blue Hamilton
Matt decided to start off the year 2013 with a bang by taking it to social media (specifically, Twitter) to announce his engagement as well as proclaiming his sexuality as a gay man. What a way to kick off the new year, right?
Melissa Benoist & Blake Jenner
The two newcomers to Glee shocked gleeks when reports were surfacing that the two were engaged. No one believed it until they finally touched on the subject in an interview during an event (E!Online). All the Glee shippers of the Ryder and Marley relationship had their dreams come true.
Shocking or not, congratulations to the newly engaged couples. I wish them all nothing but the best for the future. We’re still in the early months of 2014, so there’s plenty of time for more engagements to pop up!
