Just short of two years of being together, it seems that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are now engaged. The reports come after Kunis was spotted wearing a beautiful diamond engagement ring on her wedding finger. There have been no confirmations yet.
People reports that a source informed the magazine the couple got engaged recently, after talking about it for some time. The couple wanted to wait for Kutcher’s divorce from Demi Moore to finalize, which happened at the end of last year. However, rumors of them dating started circulating in April 2012.
Both met on the set of That ‘70s Show, where they initially played onscreen boyfriend and girlfriend. They remained friends and in touch, but their private lives went different ways. Thirty-six year old Kutcher married Bruce Willis’ ex-wife, Moore, in 2005. They separated in November 2011 after Moore accused her husband at the time of cheating. However, it was December the next year that the Two and a Half Men actor decided to file for divorce.
Kunis focused on her career, although did agree to attending the Marine Corps Ball after a video of Sgt. Scott Moore asking her went viral across the internet. She accepted after Justin Timberlake did something similar weeks before. She has been linked to Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin.
Kutcher and Kunis remained quiet about their relationship when rumors spread in April 2012, and they are doing the same now that rumors spread about their engagement. However, they have been documented in the media showing various public displays of affection, while at events and on their vacations.
Plans for marriage have been on the table since July last year. One source close to the couple stated that the 36-year-old actor was annoyed that his impending divorce was getting in the way. At the time, there were still debates over how to split up the $300 million fortune that he and Moore had together.
The two enjoyed two weddings at the end of last month. The first was Kunis’ brother in Florida and the second was Kutcher’s brother in Iowa. The actor was the best man, and recently told Jimmy Kimmel how it was like being back at high school once he was around his old school friends.
This will be Kunis’ first marriage, but her husband-to-be’s second. Hopefully, it will work out for Kutcher this time. While Moore claims that he had an affair during their marriage, he denied all allegations. When filing for divorce, he stated that there were irreconcilable differences instead of an “at fault” divorce. He waited so long believing that his ex-wife would file the papers, but got tired of waiting around. The delayed caused some to wonder whether the two had really married or were arguing over money.
The engagement rumors started on Thursday when Kunis was spotted with the diamond ring on while shopping with her mother. Reps for neither actors have confirmed or denied the rumors yet. However, sources close to the couple are reporting that Kunis and Kutcher are engaged and “incredibly happy together.”
