They Liked It So They Put a Ring On It – Fast! The Quickest Celebrity Engagements
Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley are just the latest celeb couple who are seriously eager to walk down the aisle
Aaron & Shailene
Aaron Rodgers stunned fans in early February 2021 when he thanked his fiancée during the NFL Honors. Turns out the lucky lady was none other than Shailene Woodley, whom he'd been dating only a few months following his summer 2020 split from Danica Patrick.
"They are very happy together," a source told PEOPLE of the Green Bay Packers quarterback and Divergent actress. "It's not surprising he proposed so fast. When you know, you know, right?"
Demi & Max
Sharing a series of photos taken shortly after Ehrich got down on one knee, Lovato opened up about saying "yes" to the man who made her want to "to be the best version" of herself.
The pair split in September of that year.
Brooklyn & Nicola
The couple went public with their relationship in January 2020 when Beckham wished Peltz a happy 25th birthday on Instagram, and by July, they were engaged.
The happy couple confirmed their exciting news in a pair of matching social media posts on July 11, hours after reports about their engagement first began circulating online.
“Two weeks ago I asked my soulmate to marry me and she said yes,” Beckham wrote alongside a romantic engagement snap of the pair — which also showed off the Transformers: Age of Extinction actress’ stunning diamond sparkler.
Danielle & Olivier
After meeting in October 2018 and starting a relationship in February 2019, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Staub and her new boyfriend Maier announced their engagement on Feb. 28, 2019 — and plans to marry that March 4.
“I’m madly in love,” Staub, whose divorce from husband Marty Caffrey was finalized one week prior to her engagement, told PEOPLE. “I’m feeling elated and excited for the next stage of my life. I’m going to marry the man of my possible dreams and hopefully I’ll spend the rest of my life in bliss.”
After postponing their wedding so Staub could focus on family, the pair split in September 2019.
Chris & Katherine
First spotted in June 2018, Pratt announced his engagement to Schwarzenegger on Jan. 14, 2019, with a loving Instagram post.
"Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes," he wrote. "I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!"
The pair was set up by Schwarzenegger's mom, Maria Shriver. In addition to spending time with Pratt, Schwarzenegger also got to know the actor's young son, Jack, and even his ex-wife, Anna Faris.
By June 2019, they were married, and in 2020, they welcomed their first child together, daughter Lyla.
Nick & Priyanka
A source told PEOPLE Jonas and Chopra got engaged on her 36th birthday while the two were in London. "They are so happy," the source said.
The news came just two months after the pair began dating in May 2018. Over the last several weeks, the singer and the Quantico star were spotted on several dates, including a dinner date in New York City and a Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert show in Los Angeles.
The two married in a series of lavish ceremonies in India in December 2018.
Ariana & Pete
After several weeks of dating, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson became engaged in June 2018. "It's a recent engagement. They're just two people who found love quickly and make each other happy all the time," a source close to the couple told PEOPLE. "They both started talking about it this past weekend. It’s nothing they’ve been hiding."
The couple split in October 2018.
Josiah & Lauren
When you know, you know! In March 2018, Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson announced they were engaged — six weeks after beginning their courtship. The couple wed just months later, that June.
Ryan & Kayla
The gold medal swimmer (and Dancing with the Stars contestant) denied that he had a girlfriend during the Rio Olympics — and talked up his Tinder prowess despite murmurings that he was dating former playmate Kayla Rae Reid. Turns out, she was his girlfriend, and a pretty serious one at that. We got a hint when he shared photos with Reid in Rio, and he confirmed that the two were together after his first week on DWTS with an Instagram post. They got engaged less than one month after confirming their relationship.
The couple wed in January 2018, seven months after welcoming their first child, son Caiden Zane.
Rob & Chyna
Cameron & Benji
These two had a literal May-December romance before Benji Madden popped the question to Cameron Diaz – even though they're only six years apart! They started dating in May of 2014 and were engaged by December. They quietly tied the knot the following year, and in January 2020, announced the arrival of daughter Raddix.
Avril & Chad
They're both musicians from Canada – so it didn't take Kroeger and Lavigne too long to bond. They announced that they were set to tie the knot after six months together. They have since split.
Carey & Marcus
Making for the cutest love story ever, Mulligan and Mumford were childhood pen pals before getting to know each other again as adults. The two didn't need much time to know their love was real: They got engaged after five months together, and wed in 2012. They've since welcomed two children.
Mariah & Nick
It was quite a surprise when Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon tied the knot – they did so after just six weeks of dating in a surprise ceremony. The superstars filed for divorce in late 2014, finalizing their arrangement in 2016.
Khloé & Lamar
When you think whirlwind romance, you think Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom. The two famously had an epic wedding (documented on Keeping Up WIth the Kardashians, naturally) exactly a month after they met. After many ups and downs, the pair finalized their divorce in 2016.
Kaley & Ryan
It took only three months for Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting to decide to wed. "It all did move quite fast on paper, but we really did know," she told David Letterman of their quick courtship. Their marriage, sadly, was equally short-lived: The pair announced their split after 21 months.
Katy & Russell
Talk about quick moving: Former couple Katy Perry and Russell Brand announced their engagement in January 2010, only two months after they publicly confirmed their relationship. They split at the end of 2011.
Pam & Tommy
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee may hold the record for quickest-to-get-engaged in Hollywood. They knew one another for only 96 hours (that's four days) before walking down the aisle in 1995. It was a complete surprise to pretty much everyone, including Anderson's own mother, who learned about the wedding from PEOPLE. "This was the first I'd heard of him," she said. "It is heartbreaking and shocking."
On- and off-again for several years, they eventually split for good.
