There used to be a time that if you heard the news that two Olsen sisters were engaged at nearly the exact same time, you might picture the makings of a creepy double wedding in which Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen walk down the aisle in conjoined witch couture. That dream died in 2015 when Mary-Kate got married to Olivier Sarkozy. But there’s a possibility that two Olsens are engaged at the same time, it’s just not the two you’d expect. Yesterday we learned that Ashley Olsen might be engaged to her artist boyfriend Louis Eisner. Now People magazine is reporting that Elizabeth Olsen is getting married to her musician boyfriend Robbie Arnett.
It feels like just yesterday when Elizabeth was maybe-dating Tom Hiddleston, but that was four years ago! Since then, 30-year-old Elizabeth has been dating 27-year-old Robbie for about three years. Robbie is the lead singer for the indie band Milo Greene. Elizabeth wasn’t seen out in public with a suspicious ring on her ring finger like her older sister Ashley. This news comes from a source, who claims the two are engaged.
I joked yesterday that Ashley probably won’t confirm her possible engagement because she’s very private, but it’s not like we’re probably going to get much from Elizabeth Olsen either. Elizabeth “confirmed” she was dating Robbie after getting photographed walking arm-in-arm around New York City. She later was photographed with Robbie at an industry party, which clearly made them official. That much subtlety just caused every attention-hungry reality star and Instagram influencer to gasp in distress.
This will be both Elizabeth and Robbie’s first time down the aisle. Nothing else is known about a possible wedding, but one could probably assume that Mary-Kate and Ashley would be bridesmaids. And who knows, maybe Elizabeth and Ashley will do some wedding planning together? It won’t get awkward, because Elizabeth and Ashley are nowhere near the same size, so there’s no way they’ll be fighting over the same dress. Actually that’s not true – there could be some tension if there’s a vintage hanky in the family that Elizabeth wants to wrap around her bouquet, but Ashley already claimed it to use as a cape.
