It’s a new year and a new decade, and there are plenty of celebrity engagements popping up.
Celebrity relationships seem to move at the speed of light; one minute they’re in, and the next minute they’re out. But sometimes love really can win—even in Hollywood. So to help you keep track of all the new love and the impending weddings of A-listers, we’ve gathered a list all the celebrity engagements in 2020…so far.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are engaged after five years of dating.
The couple announced the news on Instagram Tuesday, October 27. “Hey @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES,” Shelton wrote in his caption alongside a photo of himself and Stefani kissing. She’s holding her left hand up; however, the pic is too far away for us to get a good look at the rock.
“Yes, please!” Stefani captioned her post of the same photo. Check out their announcements for yourself, below:
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, both co-hosts on The Voice, were confirmed to be dating in November 2015. Stefani has three children from her previous marriage to Gavin Rossdale. Shelton, meanwhile, was previously married to country singer Miranda Lambert. They split in 2015.
“It’s not something that anybody could have seen coming, besides God, I guess,” Shleton told Entertainment Tonight in 2016 about his relationship with Stefani. “It doesn’t look like it would make sense, you know? But all I can tell you is, it does. It just makes the most perfect sense for us and where we’re at in our lives. I tell people all the time, ‘Gwen saved my life last year.’ She did, and I think she would probably tell you something similar about me.”
Stefani and Shelton were going through divorces around the same time, something she opened up about to Harper’s Bazaar in 2016. “[Backstage on the set of The Voice] Blake was like, ‘Everybody, before we go out there, I want to let everyone know that by the time this airs, I will be divorced.’” she told the magazine. “It was like being handed this gift of a friend who was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time and then everything flipped. It went from horrible to, like, hopeful and like, ‘Wow, God, you just don’t know what’s gonna happen next.'”
The Selena Netflix series is one of the most anticipated offerings of the TV season. Aptly titled Selena: The Series, the show will chronicle the late Tejano singer’s family life, relationships, and rise to fame. Selena is such a beloved figure and one adaption of her story, starring Jennifer Lopez as Selena, already has the hearts of so many. Will this new TV show have a similar effect?
It certainly has the appropriate elements. Selena’s sister, Suzette, and her father, Abraham, are executive producers, so rest assured her story will be done right. The casting is also spot-on, with the actors looking very similar to the people they play. Below, check out 10 side-by-side pics of the Selena Netflix series cast vs. their IRL counterparts. The resemblance on some of them is uncanny.

Naturally, it also helped that Mahershala Ali was also a Marvel Cinematic Universe alum, as he actually played the role of Cottonmouth on the Netflix series adaptation of Luke Cage. When you’re already in the Marvel family, it doesn’t hurt to ask what other openings are available, especially when Blade is on the books to come back. Those ideas in motion, Ali asked his agent to see what the status was on the dormant intellectual property, and he told that part of the story through the following remarks:
On the one hand, Jason Aldean and his family did have masks, and only removed them briefly. At the same time, the optics of the situation aren’t great. While a family photo of everybody masked might not look good on the living room wall, it would send the right message to social media. And that’s certainly why we’re seeing this critical response.
Keanu Reeves was recently seen outside, giving his girlfriend Alexandra Grant a kiss. In a photo taken of him, he’s carrying two bags and dawning a new haircut—a buzz cut, to be exact. That could only mean one thing really, he’s been unplugged from the Matrix and woken up into the real world. After all, Neo rocked that short look throughout the first movie.
In a year of great loss and tragedy, the passing of a loved one can be even more devastating to anyone who has to endure such sadness. Actor Jamie Foxx is the latest person to share such pain with the world, as he announced that his sister, DeOndra Dixon, has passed away at the age of 36. To commemorate her life, Foxx posted the following tribute to his late sister’s memory:
OK, way harsh Hugh. Anyone else hear the faint sounds of hopeless romantics everywhere pouring a glass of wine? The actor did say he is interested in returning to his 1999 role of William Thacker, but as long as the movie dispels some of the unrealistic expectations about relationships in the process. It’s just a good old fashioned rom-com Hugh, just let us have this.
And yet, because of the involvement of director Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future), and a fantastic cast that involves Hathaway, Octavia Spencer and Stanley Tucci, The Witches works a lot more often than it doesn’t. The cast genuinely seems to be enjoying themselves with the family-friendly but still harrowing horror material. And Zemeckis holds on to enough practical effects to keep the story from flying too far into the ether. When discussing her preparation, Hathaway tells us:
Back in the 80s and 90s, video games often piggybacked on a success of a movie, adapting movies into video games, like the infamous E.T.The Extra-Terrestrial video game for the Atari 2600. With so much history built up since then, a new generation is starting to do the opposite. Ben Wheatley told Polygon he thinks this could be why video games movies are seeing a new resurgence, but also why it’s difficult to do:
