Writer-director Charlie McDowell and actor Lily Collins got engaged! The couple showed that they were dating when they went Instagram-official back in August 2019 and have been together for over a year. Recently, Collins shared the happy news regarding her engagement on her Instagram page. She posted a series of photos that captured the intimate proposal, which happened outdoors in a mountainous setting in New Mexico.
Lily Collins Said She Was Waiting Her Entire Lifetime for Her New Fiance
Lily Collins shared that she has been waiting for Charlie her entire life and can’t wait to spend their lives together. She also wrote that the engagement was the purest joy she has ever felt. On his Instagram page, McDowell wrote that Collins has illuminated his life in this time of uncertainty and darkness and that he will forever cherish his adventure with her.
In the photos that both Collins and McDowell shared, Collins can be seen displaying her new engagement ring with pride. It is an unusual and yet highly chic choice. The ring does not have a classic solitaire diamond, like most engagement rings do, but is instead made with a unique rose-cut diamond, and it is designed by Irene Neuwirth.
In the comments section of the Instagram post, Collins thanked Neuwirth for the one-of-a-kind, pink-hued jewel, thanking her from the bottom of her heart. She thinks the ring is stunning, breathtaking, and perfect.
