Cape Town - Is it just us, or is there something in the air?

The year 2019 is barely a few months old and it’s already difficult to keep up with the number of proposals in Hollywood.

Poor Cupid has been working overtime, it seems!

We look at some of our favourite celebrity engagements so far this year.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost

The couple confirmed they were engaged after two years of dating.

Scarlett and Colin were first spotted getting cosy at a Saturday Night Live season 42 finale after party in May 2017.

"They are in it for the long haul," a source told US Weekly earlier this year. "They have talked about marriage and are fully committed to each other."

It will be Scarlett’s third nuptial. She was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008-2010 and French journalist Romain Dauriac, with whom she has a five-year-old daughter, Rose. The couple divorced in 2017 after three years of marriage.


Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma

Music producer Matthew proposed to the actress in early May.

The pair are parents to a little girl, Banks, whom they welcomed in October 2018.

"He asked me to be his wife," she captioned a post on Instagram.

It will be the second time Hilary walks down the aisle. The Younger star was previously married to retired National Hockey League pro Mike Comrie, with whom she shares a seven-year-old son, Luca.

Issa Rae and Louis Diame

Rumours began circulating after Issa’s Essence magazine cover was released in late March. On it the actress was seen wearing a gorgeous sparkler on her ring finger.

She’s yet to confirm the engagement but the Insecure actress’ co-stars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji gave it away at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards.

"We're very excited for her," Yvonne said. While Jay added: "We all found out in different ways because we're all on different text chains," he revealed to Entertainment Tonight at the same event.”

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez

After more than two years together, J-Lo and A-Rod gladdened the hearts of their fans when they announced their engagement.

This is Jennifer’s fifth engagement while Alex was married to Cynthia Scurtis, the mother of his two daughters, Natasha and Ella, from 2002-2008.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom

Katy had fans guessing when she posted a selfie with Orlando, seemingly showing off a flower-shaped sparkler. She captioned the post: "Full bloom".

However her mother Mary Hudson sort of confirmed the news when she wrote on Facebook: "Look who got engaged on Valentine’s Day!"

The proud mom even included several images of the couple and Katy’s ring but later deleted the post.

Katy was previously married to comedian Russell Brand while Orlando shares a son, Flynn, with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney

US Weekly confirmed the couple’s engagement in early February. This came after Jen was spotted with a diamond ring on her left hand while the lovebirds were out for dinner in New York City.


Tim Tebow and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

Just six months after they started dating, Tim got down on one knee and proposed to Demi.

Tim confirmed their relationship in an interview with ESPN in July 2018 and a month later Demi made it Instagram official when she posted a sweet birthday message to her man for his birthday.
