I’m not sure how Here Comes Honey Boo Boo alum and current Mama June: Road to Redemption star Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her family keep popping up in the news and creeping their way back into our day-to-day lexicon (probably has something to do with June “Mama June” Shannon continuing to Mama June), but here we are. Last year, 16-year-old Alana was in the news for going public with her then 20-year-old boyfriend, Dralin Carswell. Lots of people didn’t approve of the age difference since Alana is a minor. It’s technically not illegal for them to be together since the age of consent in their home state of Georgia is 16, but anyone who has been 16 probably remembers being 16 and that making grown-up decisions at that age probably ain’t it. Alana and Dralin are still going strong, though, and Alana was even recently seen wearing a diamond-looking ring on her special freak-out finger which got people talking. But, calm down everyone, she says they are NOT fixin’ to wed.
But wait, summer is practically here! Will I have enough time to put in an order for a hand-engraved toaster for the happy couple-to-be? Because according to a source who spoke with The Sun, Rita Ora and Taika Waititi have informally decided that they’re going to legally become husband and wife sometime in the very near future.
OK! Magazine is reporting that Keanu Reeves and his girlfriend of four years, artist Alexandra Grant, are engaged. According to a very invested source, Keanu “tried to keep a low profile” on March 31, when he was spotted in L.A. “eyeing diamond rings” at a jewelry store. The insider claims that 57-year-old Keanu asked 49-year-old Alexandra to marry him after they spent an extended period of time together in Europe, where he was shooting back-to-back movies, including John Wick 4. Ahhh, nothing more romantic than playing a tortured killer hell-bent on revenge.
Jennifer Lopez has been dating Ben Affleck for a little less than a year in technical time (but what feels like an exhausting incalculable number of days in emotional time). As such, there has been plenty of talk about whether or not Ben and JLo will do what they did way back when and get engaged again. But according to JLo, the general public would never get to bear witness to Ben dropping down to one knee in the middle of a crowded street, transferring his Dunkin’ iced coffee into the crook of his elbow, and presenting a ring box to Jennifer Lynn Lopez. Because JLo wanted a private proposal. But she never said anything about a big public engagement ring reveal. And that might have been what JLo did when she was recently photographed shopping for home goods with one of her kids.
It’s been a minute since we checked in on the status of Jennifer Lopez’s wedding ring finger, and the last time we held a magnifying glass over that digit, it was still vacant and empty. But fear not, JLo’s wedding ring finger, for your time might soon be coming again! At least, according to a source who spoke with Entertainment Tonight, who claims that Ben Affleck is so close to popping the question.
We all know that Rihanna is currently pregnant with her first child, thanks to regular reminders in the form of her maternity style. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child, but it might not be the only big life milestone they have to look forward to in the future. Rihanna was recently seen with a big-ass diamond on the hand and finger one would usually associate with the location of an engagement or wedding ring. And so, naturally, a whole lot of people are speculating that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky might also be planning a stroll down the aisle, as well as having a bun in the oven.
