Max Parker & Kris Mochrie
The two British actors, who made headlines in 2020 after they started dating after playing brothers in the ITV soap Emmerdale, got engaged in January of 2022.
Parker announced that he popped the question to his boyfriend, now fiance, in a touching Instagram post.
"He deserves the world, but the best I could do was promise him my heart," Parker captioned the Instagram post, which included a carousel of super sweet pics and videos of Parker proposing to Mochrie while the two sat beachside. "HE SAID YES. Happiest moment of my life. [Kris Mochrie], my fiance."

Nico Santos & Zeke Smith
Former Survivor contestant Zeke Smith popped the big question to Superstore star Nico Santos while the two were presenting onstage at the GLAAD Media Awards back in April.
Talking about his history with GLAAD, which helped him after he was outed as trans while appearing on Survivor, Smith talked about representation and how this year's awards had more nominees than ever. But Santos thinks it's still not enough.
"We need more dramas, more comedies, and more love stories," Santos said.
"Speaking of love stories," he said. "Ours began here, four years ago, in our favorite restaurant, the Beverly Hills Ballroom - best roast chicken spot in Los Angeles - and Nico got me, at the afterparty, he got me a Ketel One cocktail, he lured me into his limousine, and he swept me off of my feet."
"Nico, your love has taught me how to love, you are my other half," Smith continued, as he got on one kneee. "And I want to spend the rest of my life with you."
