Former Disney star Bella Thorne took to Instagram on Friday to announce her engagement to TV producer Mark Emms and to show off what is estimated to be a 10-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring.
Thorne posted a series of romantic photos along with the simple caption, “my love.” In the first photo, Thorne’s 25.2 million followers got to see a close-up of the ring, which highlights a large center stone flanked by tapered baguettes.
Emms — who is best known as the producer of the Netflix series, Bad Vegan, and the co-owner of The Mulberry, a trendy bar in New York’s SoHo district — popped the question on May 13 at Thorne’s home in California, according to Vogue. The publication reported that after the proposal, Thorne and Emms celebrated the momentous event with family.
Vogue noted that the couple met last August at model Cara Delevingne’s birthday party in Ibiza, Spain.
“It was love at first sight as the sun rose,” she told the publication.
The actress is already working on the arrangements for a countryside wedding in the UK, where Emms resides and works. She also told Vogue that she plans to make a number of wardrobe changes on her special day.
“Every bride does not need one gown, but four!” she exclaimed.
Thorne’s latest engagement comes nearly a year after the actress split from her former fiancé, Benjamin Mascolo, in June of 2022. Thorne and the Italian singer were engaged in March of 2021.
Less than a month after accepting a 4-carat, pear-shaped diamond engagement ring from the Mascolo, Thorne reciprocated the loving gesture by giving her then-fiancé a diamond engagement ring of his own — a diamond-studded, openwork gold ring.
Might Emms have an engagement ring in his future? Stay tuned.
