Celebrity-spotters, rejoice – 2019 is set to be a big year for celebrity weddings, with a swathe of A-listers expected to make their way down the aisle as the year goes on. Here are 12 engaged pairs whose nuptials we’re waiting on with bated breath.

Lady Gaga confirmed her engagement to talent agent Christian Carino during a speech at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event in October, calling him ‘my fiancé’. However, she’s been wearing the ring for quite some time, so it’s possible that they’ve been engaged for much longer, making a 2019 wedding very likely!

2. ELLIE GOULDING & CASPAR JOPLING

The British singer-songwriter and her New York-based art dealer boyfriend announced that they were tying the knot in the marriage section of the UK’s The Times newspaper last year. Ellie and Caspar have been together for over two years now, so maybe 2019 will be the year they seal the deal.

3. SOPHIE TURNER & JOE JONAS

Wedding bells have been chiming non-stop for the Jonas family, with the youngest of the brothers, Nick, marrying actress Priyanka Chopra in a lavish Indian wedding late last year. Now, middle brother Joe is set to wed Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner in a wedding which will surely be as star-studded as Kit Harington and Rose Leslie’s was. Sophie’s on-screen sister, Maisie Williams, is expected to be Maid of Honour. We can’t wait!

4. ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELY & JASON STATHAM

While model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley denied reports that she and fiancé Jason Statham tied the knot in a secret New Year's Eve wedding, 2019 could be the year they make it happen! The pair have been together since 2010, but wedding plans have taken a back seat to other priorities – their high-profile careers, and raising their one-year-old son, Jack Oscar Statham. You never know, though!

5. RIO FERDINAND & KATE WRIGHT

It’s heart-warming to see that retired Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand, who was tragically widowed in 2015 when his wife Rebecca Ellison died of breast cancer, has found love again. Rio proposed to his girlfriend Kate Wright during a trip to Abu Dhabi at the end of October, with his three children by his side. A wedding date has not yet been revealed, but who’s to say a 2019 wedding isn’t in the pipeline?

6. GINA RODRIGUEZ & JOE LOCICERO

The bubbly Jane the Virgin star confirmed back in August 2018 that she was engaged to fellow actor, Joe Locicero. The two have been dating since 2016, and Joe has also guest-starred on the hit TV show several times. Clearly smitten with each other, a 2019 wedding could definitely be on the cards for these thespian lovebirds!

Bleeding Love no longer! The singer accepted a proposal from her long-time boyfriend, choreographer Dennis Jauch in August after the two celebrated eight years together. She showed off her massive diamond engagement ring in several photos and Instagram stories, and shared a sweet snap of their Christmas together. Bless.

8. MARC JACOBS & CHARLY “CHAR” DEFRANCESCO

Designer Marc Jacobs and his candle-maker fiancé Charly “Char” Defrancesco got engaged at a Chipotle restaurant (yes really) in 2018 – apparently, the Mexican chain restaurant where they celebrate all their anniversaries! Char has said that he’d be happy getting married at Chipotle too, but Marc probably has slightly more upscale plans – which might all be revealed in 2019!

9. IDRIS ELBA & SABRINA DHOWRE

People’s Sexiest Man of The Year for 2018 (and possibly the next James Bond), Idris Elba, has been engaged to his long-time beauty queen girlfriend for nearly a year now! Idris proposed to Sabrina just a few days before Valentine’s Day last year – so it would really bring things full circle if they exchange ‘I Do’s on the lovers’ holiday. No pressure, though.

10. HEIDI KLUM & TOM KAULITZ

Heidi and Tom were among the numerous celebrity couples who got engaged over Christmas. On Christmas Eve, the supermodel posted an exuberant photo of her new ring, captioning with “I SAID YES.” The couple, who are both of German descent, have been dating since at least March 2018, and if they’re truly head over heels, they may not wait too long before making it legal.

11. DEBBY RYAN & JOSH DUN

Actress Debby Ryan and Twenty-One Pilots drummer Josh Dun shared the happy news that they were engaged over the holidays! The musician wrote that he “found a tree house in the woods in New Zealand and proposed to my girl.” “I said yes! Well technically I said ‘NO WAY’ twice but I meant yes,” Debby said. Spontaneity seems to be their trademark, so a wedding may not be too far off!

12. MEG RYAN & JOHN MELLENCAMP

Iconic 90s actress Meg Ryan announced her engagement to her musician boyfriend on Instagram last year. The pair have been dating on and off for nearly a decade – they appeared to call it quits in August 2014, but rekindled their romance in May 2017. 2019 could very well be the year they decide that they’re on again – permanently. Here’s hoping!
