Call the wedding planner! Kate Bosworth and Justin Long are engaged, a source confirmed to ET.
“They’re both thrilled, and their loved ones are incredibly happy for them,” says the source. “They are an amazing couple and they are so excited.”
ET has reached out to representatives for Bosworth and Long for comment.
The confirmation comes days after Bosworth and Long sparked engagement speculation when she wore a diamond ring on that finger to the Vanity Fair Oscars after party.
Bosworth and Long were first rumored to be together in 2021 when they worked together on the film The House of Darkness. Last August, Bosworth announced that she and Michael Polish, her husband of nearly eight years, were separating. She officially filed for divorce on July 15.
Bosworth and Long have remained quite private about their relationship. In April, they were spotted mid-kiss while lounging on a Hawaiian beach, confirming rumors of their romance for the first time. That same month, Dulgia picked on his girlfriend Viall files podcast – although he didn’t mention Bosworth by name, he confirmed that he had found “the one”.
Later in May, a source told ET that the couple’s relationship was quickly getting serious. “They both went into this relationship with no expectations or pressure — it was just fun and easy — but things quickly got serious,” the source said.
Around the same time, Bosworth and Long were spotted together in New York, which is said to be one of their favorite getaway destinations.
“Justin has been living in New York and likes to take Kate to some of her old favorites in the East Village,” the source said.
Just a week later, Long finally named Bosworth on an episode of Chelsea Handler’s podcast, Dear Chelsea, saying, “I’ve never had anything like this before.”
While first circling the subject, Handler asked, “Can I say her name?” To which Long assured with a smile, “Yes, yes, yes!”
Discussing the nature of public celebrity relationships, Long mentioned Handler’s relationship with stand-up comedian Joe Coy and how the couple shared their romance with the world.
“I love how open you are about your happiness and joy,” Long said. “But there’s something about it, for me, that I feel like I have to protect and keep sacred because it feels sacred.”
A few days later, the pair made their romance Instagram official, with Long posting a series of travel selfies, with Bosworth writing in the comments: ‘I’m the luckiest. 🍀✨😘.”
In June, Bosworth opened her own Instagram account to celebrate Long’s 44th birthday.
“You were born today and the world lit up brighter than you knew and years later I met a girl whose life was torn apart/rearranged but you were patient and in time she fell in love, now there’s a glow (one that was forgotten long ago) she is so grateful *more than you will ever know 💛 Happy birthday @justinlong you make me smile so wide my face hurts xx Thank you for bringing peace to my heart since the day you we met,” she wrote.
He returned the favor in January by beaming at the actress on her 40th birthday, calling her “the best part of my day, every day — even when we’re not together.”
“She laughs with abandon. She makes me laugh the same way – all the time. She sees beauty everywhere and in everyone. She thanks everyone – even when she’s suffering, she’s kind. She was grateful to the nurses, while in real pain. She’s deeply compassionate and can’t hurt anyone, but she can be a con. She loves to tease. She has the best, softest lips I’ve ever kissed,” Long wrote. “She loves beer and football more than I do (and I love beer and football). She is the strongest person I know.”
“She is strongly committed to the truth. She is so much fun to work with. It’s the most fun to do everything with her. She is genuinely curious about people and the world. She makes everything in my life better — all my favorite songs and movies and vacations and sunsets and Chinese food,” he continued. “She strives to be better, but she’s the best person I know. She will do anything for her friends. She’s so generous it makes my parents feel a little uncomfortable around the holidays (she also makes the best cookies). She’s the most beautiful human being I’ve ever seen. She’s pure good. She’ll stand up to anyone who isn’t. She has real integrity and courage. She has, by far, my favorite smile.”
