It’s official people, Evan Spiegel has made the giant step to removing himself from our list of world’s most eligible billionaire bachelors. The Snapchat CEO, 26, popped the question to his Australian beau Miranda Kerr, 33, on Wednesday July 20.
The former Victoria Secret Angel took to Instagram to reveal the news with a photo of her hands sporting her new rock. The black-and-white photo also featured a custom Snapchat filter with the words: “Marry Me”. She captioned the post “I said Yes”.
Miranda’s ring is set in what looks like platinum or white gold. It features a giant round diamond with a tapered diamond baguette flanked on either sides. Although the celebrity couple didn’t reveal how much the ring cost, various sources have shed their speculations on the ring. One of such is jewelry expert Michael O’Connor. In his interview with US Weekly, he said
“Miranda’s ring is the quintessence of classic style and understatement. It’s a classic round diamond of about 2.5 carats. The value of the ring would be approximately $55,000.”
A really modest price from a billionaire who per Forbes boasts a net worth of over $2 billion. Maybe he’s saving the millions for the wedding, which we hear would be extremely lavish.
Miranda and Evan who have been dating for about a year now first met at a dinner in L.A. for Louis Vuitton. The model told The Sydney Morning Herald; “We were really good friends for a long time before we started dating.” In May 2015, they purchased a $12 million mansion in Brentwood, Los Angeles.
But while this is the first engagement for Evan, it is Miranda’s second. The Aussie model said yes to a proposal from actor Orlando Bloom back in 2010. They married few months later but separated in 2013. Their marriage produced a son Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom born on 6 January 2011. According to Miranda, Evan has already met Flyn, she said; “Evan met Flynn, so, yeah, things are going well. Orlando thinks he’s great. We’re just a modern family now!”
We eagerly anticipate the wedding…
