Anthony Ramos and Jasmine Cephas Jones' love story began backstage. 

The stars met while originating the roles of John Laurens/Philip Hamilton and Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds in Lin Manuel Miranda's culture-shifting Broadway musical, Hamilton, and coupled up shortly after their first rehearsal together.

Between 2017 and 2021, they regularly shared Instagram tributes and raved about each other in interviews. In 2018, Ramos told PEOPLE how meaningful it was to enjoy success alongside his partner.

"I think that's a blessing. I'm truly just eternally grateful for her, man. I get excited when I think about it," he said.

Cephas Jones echoed her then-fiancé's sentiment during a radio interview with Bevy Smith.

"[Anthony and I] love to work together, we wish we could work together more," she told the host.

Their six-year relationship saw countless milestones: Grammy wins, red carpet appearances, creative collaboration, costarring roles and a fairytale marriage proposal. However, in 2021, they called off their engagement, nearly three years after Ramos popped the question.

While the former pair have continued to book blockbusters and land leads on TV, they've been private about the details of their breakup.
