Kate Bosworth and Justin Long Are Reportedly Engaged
Kate Bosworth and Justin Long are engaged, according to recent reports. After 40-year-old “Blue Crush” star Bosworth debuted a 10-carat ring at the Vanity Fair Oscars party on March 12, People reported on March 24 that multiple sources said the couple are set to tie the knot.
Reps for the stars did not respond to POPSUGAR’s multiple requests for comment, but one insider close to Bosworth told People the actor is “on cloud nine” about her engagement. “She is showing off her engagement ring to friends,” the source added. “She is being coy about details, but she is beaming. Everyone is happy for her. Justin is a great guy. He adores her. It’s just amazing to see them together.”
Bosworth seemed to hint at the relationship milestone when she shared an Instagram album with film photos of her and Long getting ready for the Academy Awards on March 15. In the caption, she thanked nail artist Ashlie Johnson for “the most important manicure to date.” Johnson also posted photos from Bosworth’s night on her Instagram, calling out Bosworth’s “new bling” in the caption.
Bosworth and Long were first romantically linked in May 2021 after they wrapped up filming for their 2022 horror film “House of Darkness.” Bosworth shared photos of them on Instagram and praised Long, writing, “Holy moly @justinlong you are a truly spectacular / fun / funny / kind / rare / thoughtful / totally. fckn. rad human being.” Seven months later, Long confirmed he was in a relationship on his “Life Is Short With Justin Long” podcast, but he didn’t reveal the name of his other half. According to People, the couple were then spotted together on several occasions throughout 2022.
Then, during an April 2022 appearance on Nick Viall’s show “The Viall Files,” Long said he had found “the one.” Without disclosing Bosworth’s name, Long said, “I want to [talk about it], but I also want to be protective. I want to scream it from the rooftops, but I also want to be protective. It’s sacred.” That same month, the pair were seen kissing on the beach in Hawaii in photos obtained by People. And the rest is history!
