Bella Thorne is engaged!
The actress and her boyfriend, Benjamin Mascolo, are finally taking their relationship to the next level after being in a steady relationship for two years.
Benjamin, an Italian singer, took to Instagram to announce their engagement. He posted on March 20, “She said YES [diamond ring and black heart emoji]” together with their photos showing the couple celebrating their engagement. The 23-year-old actress even showed her pear-shaped diamond ring.
The 27-year-old singer also posted a video of Bella’s reaction during the proposal. He said, “Thank you for being amazing, baby. I love you so much” and she responded, “I love you so much.”
“Yay! We’re getting married. Celebration in Italy and America both,” Benjamin added. “Yes. I love you so much. Now give me a kiss.”
The post was flooded with congratulatory messages from their close friends. Ruby Rose commented, “Congratulations. You two are the cutest.”
Meanwhile, Chiara expressed her congrats with heart-eye emojis while Sebastian Danzig added, “I LOVE YOU BOTH.”
So how did Benjamin go about the proposal? He did it on the set of their new movie called Time is Up.
He shared a photo of the love letter he penned on his Instagram Stories which he later gave to Bella. He explained, “I wrote the love letter on the back of the script of our movie…at the end of the last scene. She was at monitor watching with the director and…surprise.”
The couple first sparked romance rumors in April 2019 after the actress broke up with Mod Sun. She was in an open relationship with singer and influence Tana Mongeau but they separated in February 2019.
The two have an undeniable chemistry. Bella told PEOPLE in June 2019, “Ben is a cutie pie, and seeing him on FaceTime all the time makes me smile very big. Clearly, he lives in Italy so it’s an interesting thing.” They made their relationship Instagram official on that same month.
Bella opened up that same year that she’s pansexual. As such, she likes beings and it doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl. She explained that she likes personality and that she simply likes what she likes.
She and Ben maintained a polyamorous relationship but in October 2019, she announced that she had a new girlfriend, Alex Martini.
It didn’t last long and now Bella and Ben are ready to finally settle down!
