Are Megan Fox And Machine Gun Kelly Engaged? Why Eagle-Eyed Fans Are Convinced

The Transformer's star was spotted wearing a rock on THAT finger. So, are Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly engaged? 

The happy couple were spotted in matching outfits in New York City as they made their way to the SNL studios, where MGK was rehearsing for an upcoming performance. But it's the ring Megan Fox was seen wearing that has everyone talking. 

After the 34-year-old actress emerged from a hotel wearing a giant diamond on her ring finger, many were quick to speculate that MGK has popped the question. 

Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, has made no secret of his affections for Fox since they started dating in mid-2020 after Fox's split from Brian Austen Greene after a decade of marriage. 

There had been a lot of ups and downs in Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green's marriage over the years, but the announcement of their separation still came as quite a shock. But what was even more surprising is how quickly Fox moved on and now it looks like a second marriage could be on the cards for the mother-of-three. 

So what's going on?

Are Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly engaged?

Here's a full timeline of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's relationship from dating rumors to a potential engagement.

Fox and Green have been rumored to be on the outs recently.

Divorce rumors about Fox and Green ramped up when Green was seen out grocery shopping in April 2020 without wearing his wedding ring amid reports that they'd been quarantining separately, with Fox living in Calabasas and Green living in Malibu.

They were also seen seemingly exchanging their children in a parking lot, too, so it sounds like — at least for the last several weeks — they've possibly been separated.

Kelly and Fox are in a new movie together.

Though production has been halted for the time in light of COVID-19, Fox and Kelly were working together on Midnight In the Switchgrass, which also stars Bruce Willis and Emile Hirsch. The movie initially began filming in March 2020 which is when the pair are believed to have met.

It is thought the two formed a friendship initially as Fox and Green were still together at this point, but things soon developed into something more after the Jennifer's Body star split from her husband.

Fox and Kelly were first spotted together in May 2020. 

Paparazzi caught Kelly and Fox picking up food in Calabasas in May. Though they weren't spotted engaging in PDA or doing anything like that — at least, not while the cameras were around — this is when dating rumors first began.

Green posted a cryptic Instagram post that seemed to be alluding to the situation.

Shortly after the photos surfaced, Green posted this photo to Instagram, 

"Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long," he wrote. "They start feeling smothered. It’s a great big world and they want to experience it."

Green and Fox announced their separation.

Though Green and Fox almost split once before, they decided to stay together after Fox became pregnant with their third child. In 2016, Fox filed to dismiss their divorce proceedings after they had reconciled, and it truly seemed like things were going smoothly.

However, days after the MGK dating rumors began to swirl, Green took to his podcast on May 18 2020 to confirm that he and Fox had been on a break since the end of 2019. 

He also addressed the photos of Fox and Kelly out together. “I’ve never met him, but Megan and I have talked about him,” Austin said. “They’re friends at this point, and from what she’s expressed, he’s a really nice, genuine guy, and I trust her judgment.”

Fox appears in Machine Gun Kelly's music video.

On May 20, MGK released a music video for a song titled "Bloody Valentine" in which Fox plays his partner. The two added more fuel to the fire by almost sharing a kiss on-screen. 

Almost a month later, MGK seemingly confirmed their relationship by tweeting out lyrics to the song.  "I’m calling you girlfriend, what the f*ck.’ Life imitated art on that one," he wrote.

Fox says she knew from the moment she met MGK that something would happen between them.

After being spotted kissing and holding hands on a number of occasions, Fox and MGK finally sat down to talk about their relationship in a joint interview.

"I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame," she recalled, "So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away." 

The pair became Instagram official a couple of days later with adorable matching snaps. 

The couple met each other's children.

After a couple of months of Instagram posts, another music video, and some PDA, reports emerged in October that MGK had met Fox's three sons from her relationship with Brian Austen Green. Machine Gun Kelly is also a father to a teenage daughter from a previous relationship. 

Fox and MGK spent New Year's together.

Fox came to Times Square to support her beau during a New Year's Eve performance and the couple shared a kiss as they welcomed 2021. This happened amid reports that MGK was already planning on proposing to Fox in the upcoming year. Earlier that month, MGK revealed that Fox had played a vital role in his struggle with addiction as he opened up about the seriousness of their relationship.

Are Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly engaged? 

These two definitely seem to have had a whirlwind romance so a marriage proposal after less than a year of dating definitely isn't out of the question.

Fortunately, given how public these two have been about their relationship so far, we probably won't have to wait long to hear if wedding bells are on the cards.
