Machine Gun Kelly proposed to Fox on Jan. 11 after the pair began dating in 2020.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are engaged! The 35-year-old actress shared the exciting news on Instagram on January 13 where Kelly, 31, gifted his fiancée a not-so-traditional ring. The rapper whose real name is Colson Baker told Vogue this past weekend in Milan, amid their attendance at the Dolce & Gabanna fall 2022 menswear show, that the custom two-stone ring includes "bands [that] are actually thorns."
"So if she tries to take it off, it hurts," joked the Bloody Valentine musician, adding, "Love is pain!" He shared the video of the ring on Instagram captioning it: “yes, in this life and every life” 💍 beneath the same branches we fell in love under, i brought her back to ask her to marry me. i know tradition is one ring, 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. 1-11-2022
Kelly added, "It's a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment. It was just carved into the teardrop, straight out of the mine. And the diamond was directly from [jeweler] Stephen [Webster]. The concept is that the ring can come apart to make two rings. When it's together, it's held in place by a magnet," he continued. "So you see how it snaps together? And then it forms an obscure heart."

Speaking of the gorgeous emerald and diamond sparkler with pear-cut stones, Webster told PEOPLE, "By the use of magnets buried within the gold, [the rings] are attracted to each other and sit together perfectly on the finger. [It's] a detail that is both modern and quite extraordinary." He did not disclose the cost of the unique piece of jewelry but experts believe it could be up to $500,000. Jewelry designer Mark Broumand said, "This Toi et Moi [you and me] style has a very unique look. The gorgeous white diamond and green emerald really compliment each other. They indeed look to be top quality, putting the ring cost around $300,000." Sahar Manley, owner of jewelry label Camilla Seretti, added, "It appears that each gemstone is 7 carats, which would make the ring valued at nearly $500,000," Manley said. "Enlisting an expert like Stephen Webster to perfect the custom ring was a smart and thoughtful move to truly master the piece."
Fox, 35, and Machine Gun Kelly, 31, first began dating after meeting on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass. Speaking of their instant connection she revealed to a podcast in July 2020, as per FOX News, "The second I was in a room with him and said hello to him and looked into his eyes, I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame." Fox was previously married to actor Brian Austin Green who she shares three children with. The Jennifer's Body actress filed for divorce in November 2020. A source told PEOPLE that "nobody was surprised" when the musician popped the question to Fox. "They had been talking about it for a while," the insider said. "For those two, it was very much a love at first sight situation. They spend every waking second together. They are always together for each other's professional and personal events. She always likes to be by his side. All of his friends and colleagues know that if they're going somewhere, nine out of ten times, Megan will be there." To Fox, however, it was a surprise, another insider told the outlet. But she "loved the proposal" and "thought it was beautiful and perfect," they said, adding, "She is excited to get married."
