Throughout the years, Meg Ryan has played the leading lady role alongside some of Hollywood’s hottest actors in movies such as When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle.
But it’s a boy from Indiana that has officially stolen her heart.
Ryan announced her engagement to legendary music artist John Mellencamp on Thursday (Nov. 8) with a hand-drawn picture posted on her Instagram page. Next to the photo, she simply typed the word ‘engaged.’
The 56-year-old Ryan has been dating Mellencamp off and on since 2011, officially rekindling their romance in May of 2017. Even “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and Mellencamp’s daughter, Teddi, headed to her Instagram page to express her happiness over the change in their relationship status.
“Congratulations Dads and Meg,” Teddi wrote alongside a family pic. “We love you both very much.”
Recently, Ryan spoke out about her decision to step away from acting just over 10 years ago to not only fall in love, but learn more about herself in the process.
“I was a journalism major at school and a curious person, and I wanted to go back out into the world and figure out who I was — am — in relationship to other things and other people and other environments,” Ryan says.
