Meg Ryan announces engagement to John Mellencamp


That's right, the "Sleepless In Seattle" star and musician John Mellencamp are engaged, news the actress herself confirmed with a beautifully weird drawing of the two on her Instagram page Thursday morning.

Meg, 56, and John, 67, first began their relationship in 2011, before breaking up in 2014.

By December 2017, things looked pretty serious once again when Ryan's 25-year-old son, Jack Quaid, and Mellencamp's 23-year-old son, Hud, joined the couple at a New York Knicks game. Thursday's engagement confirmation comes days after a tabloid report claimed the couple just Wednesday in an intimate ceremony in Indiana.

They've been dating on and off since 2010.

After saying that the actress "hates him to death", he added: "Oh, women hate me".

The three-time Golden Globe-nominated star of "Sleepless In Seattle" and "You've Got Mail" confirmed the news by posting a quirky sketch of the couple on Instagram Thursday.

Mellencamp's comments on the Howard Stern Show were rare as neither he nor private Ryan have shared much publicly about their romance.

There was a rumor earlier this year that Meg and John had tied the knot, but Ryan's rep told it wasn't true. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain.

Meg is also mother to her adopted her daughter Daisy.
