Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Miranda Kerr is set to get married for the second time around as she just announced on Instagram that she said yes to the proposal of Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel and the billionaire co-founder of Snapchat are now engaged. The announcement showed the ring given by Spiegel to Kerr in a black and white snap. The photo was superimposed with a bitmoji proposal and the words “Marry Me!” The caption on the photo reads: “I said yes!” Details about how the proposal went down have not been released.
Spiegel and Kerr first met last 2014 then started dating the year after. They have been on the low since they began dating but sources said that Kerr and Spiegel seemed to have become comfortable around each other and that they bonded quite quickly. Last summer, Kerr brought Spiegel as her date at a VIP party and she reportedly introduced him to her friends. They also had a lot of PDA moments but were not caught on camera as they have been attending private events with a small crowd.
They also recently purchased a $12 million mansion at the Brentwood neighborhood in Los Angeles. It is unclear if they have been living together and if her son, Flynn, stays with them. Just last week, a source shared that Spiegel is getting ready to propose to Kerr as he has reportedly started looking at rings.
As for the wedding, an insider said that the couple will have an extravagant ceremony as Spiegel wants that kind of style. Kerr, on the other hand, do not mind the plans of Spiegel.
Last January, Kerr was interviewed by The Edit and she gushed about her then-boyfriend. She said that Spiegel is only 25 but he acts like he is 50. She said that Spiegel is not out partying after work. Kerr also revealed that they would rather stay home and have dinner then go to bed early.
Flynn is the son of Kerr to Orlando Bloom. The pair was married from 2010 to 2013. The Australian model shared during the January interview that her son has met Spiegel and things are doing well. Bloom also met Spiegel and the actor thinks the Snapchat CEO is great.
Before being linked to Spiegel after her divorce from Bloom, she was spotted out and about with Australian billionaire James Packer. Packer is now engaged to Mariah Carey and they are soon getting married.
An insider shared that Kerr loves how down to earth and smart Spiegel is. They reportedly also have great conversations and they just talk for hours about anything. Another reason why she easily connected and fell in love with Spiegel is that he comes from a close-knit family.
The two are yet to announce their target wedding date.
