It's official! Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp are engaged after a seven-year on and off relationship
This will be Meg Ryan's second marriage and John Mellencamp's fourth marriage but the couple has been dating on and off for the last seven years
It's not just a rumor anymore! Meg Ryan is engaged to a rock veteran John Mellencamp and now it's Instagram official. The 'When Harry Met Sally' star took to the photo-sharing social media site on Thursday to post a hand-drawn illustration of herself and the 'Jack & Diane' singer and simply captioned it: “ENGAGED!”
The rom-com queen was first linked to 67-year-old Mellencamp in 2011 but the couple eventually split in 2014, with the musician telling radio jockey Howard Stern, “Oh, women hate me. I loved Meg Ryan. She hates me to death. I think it’s because I’m a child. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that’s me.”
After the interview aired in March 2017, Ryan and Mellencamp reconciled and were spotted out in New York City again and she began to frequent his concerts. However, in their seven years of dating, they have been on and off for so long. They broke up in 2014, then got back together later that year, called it quits again in 2015 and then reconciled again in 2017 and sparked engagement rumors.

Earlier this year various sources had reported that the duo had started planning a wedding celebration after they were spotted around Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, where Mellencamp owns a home, appearing as though they were planning an event. And now those speculations just turned out to be true. The rumors of her impending nuptials started when on Wednesday, the 56-year-old actress was spotted wearing what appeared to be a wedding band on her left ring finger as she ran errands in New York.
Ryan was previously married to actor Dennis Quaid, the father of her 26-year-old son Jack, and this will be the fourth marriage for 'Hurts So Good' rocker who was previously married to Elaine Irwin, Victoria Granucci and Priscilla Esterline. He shares daughter Teddi Mellencamp with Granucci.
