Meg Ryan, John Mellencamp engaged, confirmed by Meg Ryan Instagram photo

Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp, pictured here in 2013, are engaged.

The couple has been dating on and off since 2011, but sparked engagement rumors back in October 2017 when Ryan was spotted wearing a diamond ring on that finger. "You know, I love Meg Ryan", Mellencamp declared. Thursday's engagement confirmation comes days after a tabloid report claimed the couple just Wednesday in an intimate ceremony in Indiana.

"Oh, women hate me". The happy news comes after years of an on-again, off-again romance with the pair.

Why the animosity? The 65-year-old musician elaborated, "I think it's because I'm a child. She was just an angel sent to me at the right time", Mellencamp told radio personality Howard Stern at the time. Prior to confirming their relationship that year, the Jack and Diane singer opened up about Meg's feelings towards him during an interview with Howard Stern. "I'm moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that's me". This trip down the aisle will be Meg's second.

Congratulations are in order for Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp! Ryan was previously married to fellow actor Dennis Quaid from 1991 to 2001.

Mellencamp has been married three times before, most recently to fashion model Elaine Irwin, whom he divorced in 2011 after 18 years of marriage.

Ryan has a son named Jack with Quaid, as well as a daughter, Daisy, whom she adopted after her divorce.
