On Wednesday, April 20, Richie shared the exciting news with her fans via an Instagram photo, showing off her massive diamond ring!
Elliot Grainge and Sofia Richie have gotten engaged!
Two photographs of her stunning outdoor proposal were published by the social media star. Richie wore a modest yellow flowery sundress with beautiful slippers and minimal jewellery
As Grainge dropped down on one knee to pop the big question, the daughter of iconic musician Lionel Richie seemed obviously stunned. The lovebirds were surrounded by a lavish candle display, with numerous petals of flowers thrown around the tiled floor.
The couple was photographed against a blue sunset with palm trees in the backdrop, but the location of the lavish proposal was not revealed in the post. In the following slide, Richie gave viewers a close-up look at her engagement ring.
Richie placed her palm gently on her now-face fiance’s while sharing an intense kiss, revealing the stunning emerald-cut diamond ring on her finger. “Forever isn’t long enough @elliot,” the soon-to-be bride captioned the sweet picture.
“I can’t wait to find ways to make this about me,” wrote Nicole Richie, the young fashion designer’s big sister, in one of the happy comments she shared.
“She said yes,” Grainge captioned a photo of himself and his woman kissing beside an outdoor fire stand, to which Richie replied, “I love you,” in the comments.
Months had passed since the engagement was announced
Despite the fact that Richie and Grainge have only been dating for a year, a source close to the pair stated that they had been planning to move forward for months.
“They have talked about getting engaged, and it’s something that Sofia wants and is looking forward to,” the insider told E! News as long back as November 2021. They’re a fantastic match, and everything is going swimmingly for them. Sofia and Elliot have been living together for a while now, and the transition has been effortless.”
According to the insider, the model, who has worked with companies such as Michael Kors, adores the bond she has with Grainge and how drama-free it is. “She admires Elliot’s calm and collected demeanour, and they have a lot of fun together, even when they’re just chilling at home,” the source said.
Richie’s father, on the other hand, has been a huge supporter of their relationship since the start. In April 2021, Grainge, the son of Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge, initially started romance rumours with Richie, and the two went Instagram official a few days later.
