Surprise: Bella Thorne is engaged! The 25-year-old actor announced the news via Vogue on May 26, showing off candid selfies of her and her fiancé, entrepreneur Mark Emms, posing with her giant 10-plus-carat diamond ring on Instagram.
According to the publication, Thorne and Emms — known as the producer behind Netflix’s “Bad Vegan” docuseries and co-owner of New York hotspot The Mulberry — met on a beach last year in Ibiza, crossing paths at Cara Delevingne’s birthday party. Thorne told the outlet, “It was love at first sight as the sun rose.” Emms then proposed to the “Midnight Sun” star at her California home the day before Mother’s Day, where the two celebrated the happy occasion with family.
It’s unclear when exactly Thorne and Emms started dating, but they made their relationship Instagram official on Valentine’s Day, sharing a sweet photo of them re-creating the famous “Lady and the Tramp” spaghetti scene, only this time with a candy rope. “Find someone u want to share ur candy with 😍,” Thorne captioned the post. “Ps.this sexy tall British man is mine so get yah own cuz I feel like kickin Ass today.”
Prior to going public with their romance, the actor and producer were spotted kissing while vacationing in Mykonos, Greece, in photos published by the Daily Mail. Previously, Thorne was engaged to Italian singer Benjamin Mascolo in 2021 but called it quits a little over one year later, per People. In the past, Thorne has been linked to stars like Mod Sun, Charlie Puth, Tyler Posey, Cody Simpson, and Gregg Sulkin, to name a few.
Already planning ahead for her and Emms’s nuptials, Thorne shared with Vogue that she hopes to have a countryside wedding at a manor in the UK and is eyeing vintage Schiaparelli or Dior for her wedding attire. “Every bride does not need one gown, but four!” she said.
