The couple got engaged on January 11 during their vacation in Puerto Rico. The following day, Fox and MGK announced the news on social media.
They revealed the news with an adorable engagement video that show MGK getting down on one knee and pulling out a diamond ring. Fox falls to her knees and the two embrace with a kiss.
MGK & Megan Fox Open Up About Their Engagement

The video the “Transformers” actress uploaded has multiple angles of the big day, but MGK is saying absolutely NO photographers were hired to film the video.
Many fans beg to differ.
In a new interview with Vogue, the rocker said he captured the video on his cellphone.
“I just recorded it on my cell phone. And it wasn’t like we had photographers or anything. It was just like me setting my phone against a cup,” MGK told the outlet.
Fox and MGK released the video in order to control the narrative about their engagement and relationship.
“We released it to control the narrative,” he said. “As opposed to someone just catching a weird cell phone picture of a ring on our hand and being like, whoa!”
When asked about the social media hype, Fox said she doesn’t check social media so she had no clue their engagement was big news.
MGK Had No Clue His Proposal Would Be A Big Deal!
Mhmm… sure you didn’t!
MGK followed suit adding he didn’t ‘expect’ the engagement to become as big of a story as it is.
Interesting they didn’t think their engagement would make waves in the media. I guess they’re just remaining #humble.
They also revealed they drank each other’s blood after the engagement.
How they didn’t expect at least THAT bit of information to make people talk is baffling to me.
According to Page Six, MGK actually proposed to his future wife outside the Spa Botánico at the Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico.
The Proposal Drew In Criticism From Fans
Of course, it wouldn’t be a “Hollywood proposal” without lights, cameras and a little bit of beautiful scenery.
Megan wore a cute black two-piece number that included a black bralette and black oversized pants.
MGK wore a sequined black-and-gold turtle neck sweater, black pants and black combat boots.
While the engagement news shocked fans, what really got them going was the fact that they drank each other’s blood AND MGK looked like a referee.
We’ll get to the blood guzzling in a minute, but we can’t pass up the humor in Megan’s comment section.
One person commented on the video, “Did he dress like a referee because he wanted to make it official?”
Another wrote, “Why is he wearing a bedazzled referee shirt?”
This person hysterically replied, “Did he just come from his Foot Locker shift?”
Someone else compared MGK to Beetlejuice.
While many had a good laugh with his outfit, others were questioning why the proposal looked so staged and professional.
“Why does this look so staged,” one put off fan commented.
Others expressed their disappointment in Megan and wrote, “Meg this ain’t u,” and “I ain’t gon lie this cringe.”
“Clearly staged with 5 different angles from cameras 😂 👍🏼 keep drinking each other 🙄,” an unimpressed person wrote.
Many thought it felt ‘weird’ that there were so many camera angles and asked questions like, “How many takes was it?”
I have to agree, felt a bit inauthentic and VERRRRY staged, despite MGK’s recent admission.
Kim wrote, So happy for you guys!!!! 💍😍❤️,” while Kourtney left a bunch of red heart emojis.
Alright, now time for the blood!
Megan & MGK Drank Each Other’s Blood
Megan captioned the video, “In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree We asked for magic
We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time.
Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma. Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes. …and then we drank each other’s blood.”
Everything about this caption was sentimental and cute until the blood drinking bit.
Tons of people flooded her comments with questions, shock, disgust and no ‘aweee’ whatsoever regarding the blood drinking.
“What the f**k did i just read,” multiple people commented.
Someone asked, “Nobody reading that last line?!? Wtf 😳.”
One confused person replied, “Y’all drank what,” while another wrote, “you did what now?”
Megan and MGK have always gone for the shock factor. They were literally chained together by the fingernail.
In December, the two walked the red carpet at the launch of his unisex nail polish line, UN/DN LAQR, chained at the literal nail.
Also, Megan gifted MGK a drop of her blood in a vile that he wears around his neck.
Back in February, MGK posted a bunch of pictures to celebrate Valentine’s Day, including one that showed off an orb/vial that seemed to hold a drop of blood.
That drop of blood was Megan’s.
