Remember the time when you had to rely on glossy magazines to find out any celebrity news and gossip? Seems like ages ago. These days we get all our celeb news straight from the source – their own social media. No longer do we have to go and buy magazines and sift through the lies, we can just open up Twitter or Snapchat or Instagram and see what our favorite celebs are up to on any particular day. What’s even better, we don’t even have to guess what’s happening in their private life, because occasionally celebs will willingly share that online. So let’s take a walk down memory lane and look at some of the best celebrity engagement announcements that we saw on Instagram.
1. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
People have been speculating about their relationship for a while, but when the news finally broke these two decided to announce it in a classy way – by sharing their engagement portrait via the Kensington Palace Instagram.
2. Ed Sheeran
Everyone’s favourite ginger announced his engagement to his girlfriend via his Instagram too. He posted a very cute polaroid style photo and captioned it with “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”
3. Miranda Kerr
When Miranda Kerr, the gorgeous Victoria’s Secret model, got engaged she posted a picture of the ring on Instagram with a pretty cute snapchat version of the proposal layered on top and captioned it with a simple “I said yes!!! ❤️😍❤️😍❤️”
4. Eva Longoria
The beautiful and talented Desperate Housewife star, Eva Longoria, seemed pretty surprised by the proposal, but also clearly very happy about it. She announces it on Instagram with a cute photo of her kissing Jose Antonio Baston and captioned it with “Ummmm so this happened….#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness”
5. Lauren Conrad
Lauren Conrad’s engagement also took her by surprise. She announced by posting a picture of her hand with quite a sizeable engagement ring on and captioned it with “Best surprise ever.”

When Lance Bass from N’SYNC proposed to his boyfriend he posted a picture of himself with his bf looking happy and pointing to the ring. The caption simply stated “ He said YES!! Love this man @michaelturchinart “
7. Sophie Turner
Sophie Turner, or as you probably know her best – Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, announced her engagement to Joe Jonas by posting the sweetest picture captioned with “I said yes.” What’s even cuter – Joe Jonas posted the same pic on his Instagram and captioned it “She said yes.”
8. Kim Kardashian
The famous Kardashian didn’t beat around the bush when it came to her engagement to Kanye West. She just showed off the massive light up sign that said “PLEASE MARRY ME!!!”, her massive ring and said “YES!!!”
9. Blac Chyna
Speaking of Kardashians, remember when Rob Kardashian proposed to Blac Chyna? She seemed so over the moon. Yet we all know that didn’t work out in the end. That’s one of those cases where social media isn’t that great, cause it’ll remain online forever.
10. Lady Gaga
Remember when Lady Gaga got engaged and showed off her beautiful heart shaped diamond and captioned it with “He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!” ? Yeah and they broke up. She probably regretted posting that later.
