They said yes! Courtney Stodden is engaged to on-and-off boyfriend Chris Sheng.
The movie producer revealed he popped the question on Friday, May 28, during a romantic dinner. "So this happened!" he shared with a picture of Stodden's rock. "Not how I planned but the moment was right."
"I feel so blessed and fortunate," the 41-year-old continued. "We have both grown so much since we first met, and the fact that we have both been able to grow into better, stronger, more secure individuals while still being in a relationship together makes me have faith that this partnership will last a lifetime."
"For the first time we’re both experiencing unconditional love. The truest kind of love. The kind where we may not always like each other but will ALWAYS love and respect each other. I promise to always be your rock, support, and shoulder to lean on — no matter what. I got you," Sheng concluded.
"I said yes ...OH and the ring made me gag it’s so beautiful," the 26-year-old gushed on their page.
Fans and friends took to the comments to congratulate the happy couple.
"Congratulations! Happiness looks good on you ❤️," one fan gushed.
"Aww that is so cute. Yay!! happy for you guys ✨," another said.

"Congratulations Chris and Courtney ❤️" a third fan wrote.
"Chris got down on one knee while I was crying my eyes out!" Stodden told E! News of the proposal. "We returned home from a night out in Palm Springs and in between the rosè and pent up feelings, I needed a good cry!"
Stodden famously married Hutchison when he was 50 and they were 16. While their parents gave permission, they were subject to criticism by many — including Chrissy Teigen, who has since been accused of cyber-bullying Stodden.
After their split from The Green Mile actor in 2017, Stodden opened up about "grooming." Their divorce was finalized in 2020.
"I've been scared to even speak up about feeling groomed or being verbally abused during the almost 10-year marriage because I was a child and he was 50 when we married, but I'm a woman now and it's time for me to put my big girl pants on and speak on this matter," they wrote at the time.
"And to Doug… I'll always love you; yet I'll always be angry," they added. "You've left me — a child woman, feeling belittled and confused. These things I shall overcome. I wish you well. But please don't ever do this to another minor again."
Earlier this year, Stodden came out as non-binary and confirmed that their pronouns are they/them.
