In one of the biggest celebrity engagements of 2023, Vanessa, who is best known as the star of High School Musical, and Cole, a professional baseball player for the Colorado Rockies, announced they were taking the next step in their relationship.

PEOPLE had first confirmed their engagement earlier in February. Both Vanessa and Cole put out a joint post on Instagram on 9 February to confirm that they were indeed officially engaged.

The pictures showed the couple posing in Paris with Vanessa showing off her diamond engagement ring in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Reports suggest that the couple were dating for at least two years before their engagement announcement.

This is one of the major celebrity engagements of 2023 that is yet to be confirmed by the pair themselves. But news mills worked overtime in late March reporting that the two are now engaged.

“Dylan and Barbara are engaged,” ET reported, citing a source on 21 March.

Dylan, who is best known for Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and Barbara, a Hungarian supermodel, have been together since 2018. While Dylan is not very active on Instagram, Barbara has often posted the couple’s pictures on her feed.  

Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro

Grammy Award winner Rosalía and musician Rauw announced their engagement in a unique way — with a new music video for their track, “Beso.”

The music video was released on 24 March. It is towards the end of the video that Rosalía can be seen revealing her diamond engagement ring. She then kisses Rauw and says, “Te amo” (Spanish for “I love you”).

According to a PEOPLE report, it is not clear when they first met, but dating rumours started swirling when they were spotted leaving a Los Angeles restaurant in August 2021. The following month, they made their relationship public with several posts on social media.

They have since walked the red carpet at major events such as Los40 Music Awards in November 2021 and the Latin Grammy Awards in November 2022.

Lana Del Rey and Evan Winiker

On 29 March, Billboard reported that singer Lana Del Rey and music talent manager Evan Winiker were engaged.

According to the report, it is not clear when the pair first met. Though very private about their relationship, the two were sometimes spotted together in public since September 2022, when they attended the Malibu Chili Cook-Off festival with a group of friends.

In March 2023, just before the news of their engagement, Billboard reported that they were seen enjoying dinner and drinks at Pappy and Harriet’s restaurant in Pioneertown in California, US.

Neither Lana nor Evan has since commented on the reports of their engagement.
