News of his divorce finalization, which was first reported by TMZ, comes just days after Key announced his engagement to Hollywood producer and director Elisa Pugliese.

“She shows me every day that each one of us has the ability to help make the world a better place. I’m the luckiest man ever. She said yes!” he shared on Twitter Tuesday morning.

Key and Pugliese have kept their romance largely out of the public eye, though the two have attended events together, including the U.S. Open this year and the Rescue Dinner hosted by IRC in New York City earlier this month. The duo also stepped out during 2017 Emmys weekend, as well as this year’s Tony Awards and BAFTA Tea Party event.
