Machine Gun Kelly marks one-year engagement anniversary to fiancée Megan Fox with a throwback clip


Machine Gun Kelly took to Instagram on Wednesday to mark the one-year anniversary of his engagement to actress Megan Fox.

The rocker, 32, shared a throwback video of him putting the exquisite $340K two-stone ring — which features bands that are ‘thorns’ — that he proposed to the Transformers star, 36, with onto her finger.

‘One year ago under a banyan tree,’ he wrote in a text overlay, referring to the special location where he got down on his knee at the Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach resort in Puerto Rico.

The video had no sound, but simply saw his fingers — which featured silver nail polish — gliding one of the bands onto Megan’s fingers.

The actress did not post anything to her social media for the occasion, after recently joking that she is ‘seeking a girlfriend’ last month.

At the time the Rap Devil hitmaker was quick to respond with a witty comment, writing: ‘I don’t think you have the filing capacity for this request.’

Following their engagement, Kelly revealed a bizarre quirk of the ring he helped design for his new fiancée.

‘The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts,’ he told Vogue, explaining: ‘Love is pain!’

His remarks went public a week after they sealed their engagement by drinking each other’s blood after his dramatic proposal.

Megan announced their big news with a three-camera Instagram video that showed her beau down on one knee. 

She revealed that ‘we drank each other’s blood’ after he proposed under a banyan tree – the same spot where they previously had ‘asked for magic’ in June 2020. 

Kelly then shared on his own Instagram page that he designed the ring in collaboration with British jeweler Stephen Webster.

Alongside a video of the ring on Megan’s finger, he wrote: ‘i know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.’

The couple first met while shooting the crime thriller film Midnight in the Switchgrass in March 2020, and then started dating just a couple of months later. 

Kelly has never been married before but does co-parent a 12-year-old daughter called Casie with his ex-girlfriend Emma Cannon.

Megan meanwhile shares three sons of her own – Noah, nine, Bodhi, seven, and Journey, five – with her sizzling ex-husband Brian Austin Green.

She filed for divorce from Brian in 2015 citing irreconcilable differences, but she was back with him and pregnant with Journey the following year, and filed to dismiss the petition.

In May 2020, Green announced that he and Fox had separated after nearly 10 years of marriage. In November 2020, Fox filed for divorce for a second time. It was finalized the next year.

‘Each pear shape stone appears to be approx. 3cts on two magnetic diamond pave set bands shaped like thorns, signed Stephen Webster, the gem expert explained.
