It’s official: as of Jan. 11, Hollywood’s self-proclaimed “twin flames,” Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox, are engaged. Fox shared the news with an Instagram post early last week, reflecting on their engagement and their relationship itself.
“In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree,” Fox wrote. “We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.”
She continued by saying, “Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes … and then we drank each other’s blood.”
Kelly shared a similar message on his own Instagram account, where he posted a close-up video of Fox’s engagement ring. “I know tradition is one ring,” he wrote, “but I designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.”
Often PDA-heavy with their somewhat eccentric devotion for each other, the pair met in March of 2020 while filming “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” and have not shied away from sharing their very public relationship. In an interview on Lala Kent and Randall Emmett’s podcast, “Give Them Lala … With Randall,” Fox said that even from their initial meeting, she was certain that something was going to result from their introduction.
“We’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away,” Fox said.
