Congrats are officially in order for the newly engaged celeb couple: Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly! They announced the news on social media yesterday. Here's everything you need to know.

Fox posted on her Instagram the sweet video showing her beau getting down on one knee underneath a banyan tree. She explained in the caption why the tree was so meaningful to their relationship: "In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree." She continued, "We asked for magic." MGK also revealed on his page,"'Yes, in this life and every life' beneath the same branches we fell in love under, I brought her back to ask her to marry me," alongside a video of the engagement ring. Both an emerald and a diamond, he explained the ring's 2 stones represent each one of the couple's birthstones - "as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love." How sweet is that?!

The Hollywood It couple has been making headlines ever since they started dating in May of 2020. Recently MGK did an interview on The Drew Barrymore Show where he was asked how the pair met, "We were filming a movie [Midnight in the Switchgrass], which ironically the only reason I took the movie was because they were like, 'Your scene is with Megan Fox,' and I was like, 'I'll take the movie,'" he gushed. He then continued sharing how the Jennifer's Body star asked him to have lunch together. Fox later revealed in a podcast, "The second that I was in a room with him and said hello to him and looked into his eyes, I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame," she added, "We're actually two halves of the same soul I think. I said that to him almost immediately. I felt it right away."And the rest was history...

The A-list couple has since been flooded with congratulations from their famous friends. One of the first to do so was Kim Kardashian, who wrote, "So happy for u guys!!!!" Her sister followed by commenting a few red hearts. Avril Lavinge, Travis Barker, Mod Sun, and other stars shared their excitement for the newly engaged couple. Stay tuned for updates about the wedding!
