“Onto 2020 with this maniac,” she wrote underneath another throwback shot of the couple, before adding in a fourth photo, “Onto 2020 as a wifey.”

The model also shared more Instagram Story snaps that showed off her gorgeous engagement ring, which appears to feature a large center stone flanked by baguettes. According to Pettyfer’s Instagram, the ring is from Anna Sheffield Fine Jewelry.
