Ewan McGregor put on an affectionate display with girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Los Angeles on Wednesday as the couple were seen for the first time since their reported surprise engagement.

The Scottish actor, 51, could be seen linking arms with his Fargo co-star, 37, as they spent time with his parents ahead of their wedding, which is said to be taking place on Friday. 

The pair looked happy and relaxed with Mary flashing a glimpse of her huge vintage engagement ring as she got to know her future in-laws better during the casual day out.

Ewan and Mary are said to have given his parents a tour of Topanga Canyon, stopping to visit the Canyon Gourmet Market, Kinship Station, The Well Refill home store, before heading to lunch at The Topanga Living Cafe.

Carol and James McGregor appeared in good spirits and were joined by their two dogs, after having allegedly flown in for their son’s big day. 

Star Wars favourite Ewan dressed down for the occasion, sipping into a tan shirt, white T-shirt and blue jeans.

He finished off his look with white lace-up trainers and black sunglasses.

His supposed wife-to-be meanwhile looked lovely in a cream cardigan, beneath which she wore a red and white striped top.

She finished things off with jeans, brown boots and of course her sparkling diamond engagement ring. 

The group happily chatted as they walked around the area, with Mary holding one dog, while Ewan’s mum Carol took the lead of the other. 

The outing appears to be the first time Mary has been seen with Ewan’s parents. 

Meanwhile, the pair’s eco-canyon hideaway has been spotted being prepared for their big day, with the couple covering their pool with chairs for 60 guests, indicating an intimate affair.

Trucks and other vehicles could be seen in the drive while workmen are pictured carrying tables to the property.

A number of other tables are seen dotted around, while strings of fairy lights are hung up and outdoor heaters set up, suggesting the couple have opted for an outdoor reception with celebrations heading into the night.

It’s been reported that Ewan and Mary, who’ve been together since 2017, are set to tie the knot at an LA ceremony this week. 

Not having announced an engagement, the actor will allegedly exchange vows with his Fargo co-star on Friday, after they played a couple in the FX show’s 2016 series.

A source told Page Six, ‘They are more in love than ever — and having their first child together last year just strengthened their bond.’

Representatives for Ewan and Mary have been contacted for comment by MailOnline.

He shares daughters Clara, 26, Esther, 21, Jamyan, 20, and Anouk, 11, with ex-wife Eve Mavrakis. They split in 2017 after 22 years of marriage and their divorce was finalised in August 2020. 

The couple, who met on the set of the TV crime drama Kavanagh QC, first confirmed their split in 2017 amid claims Ewan had been seen kissing Mary in a London restaurant.

Eve was pictured without her wedding ring at around the same time.

The Star Wars actor – who blamed ‘irreconcilable differences’ for the split – then began dating Mary. The couple welcomed son Laurie into the world in June.

The couple, who never revealed they were expecting, had their baby news announced by Ewan’s daughter Clara on Instagram.

Clara, whose mother is Eve, shared a heartwarming snap of herself cradling her brother in her arms as she congratulated her father and Mary Elizabeth.

She wrote: ‘Welcome to the world little brother ❤️ congratulations to my Dad & Mary – this is the greatest gift’. 

Esther also shared pictures cradling the newborn as she gushed: ‘Met my little brother looking like a pirate. I recommend! Welcome to the family little Laurie’.

Despite Clara’s well-wishes for the couple, she previously slammed Mary amid her blossoming relationship with Ewan following his spit from Eve. 

She described the actress as ‘a piece of trash’ on Instagram in 2018, which accompanied a photograph of her father and Mary kissing at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.

In the post’s caption, the fan had referred to Mary as ‘the most beautiful and talented woman on earth’ – something Clara was more than ready to refute.

‘Most beautiful and talented woman on earth??? Oh man y’all are delusional. The girl is a piece of trash :),’ wrote Clara in the post’s comment section.

Soon after her reply, another Winstead fan urged her to ‘say it to [Mary Elizabeth’s] face not [on] social media.’

They added: ‘It took TWO to undo this marriage. If a man OR woman is happy w/ their marriage no outside interference can destroy that!’

To the fan’s surprise, Clara firmly agrees with their assessment. ‘Yup it took two!! Mary & my father :),’ she wrote.

In an interview with The Times in August that year, Clara openly acknowledged the immaturity of her Instagram banter, but claimed that her rage was justified.

‘It wasn’t the most mature way to go about things, but I was angry and upset.’

According to Clara, there were things going on behind-the-scenes that became ‘a lot to deal with’ and eventually sent her over the edge.

‘There had been a lot building up to it and a lot to deal with – not to make excuses or anything – but, yeah, it wasn’t my finest moment,’ she admitted.

She also explained that she kept ‘being tagged in the photograph’ and was ‘seeing negative things about [her] mom.’

‘I said how I felt and I didn’t want to apologise for it. It wasn’t the right way to go about things, but it’s a hard thing to wrap your head around when you feel you had this idea of what the family unit is and then to have that shift. It’s very weird.’
