16 Celebrity Couples Who Wasted No Time Getting Engaged
July 27, 2018
If you stay on top of celebrity news, you know that celebs fall in and out of love all of the time. Sometimes they date for several years, and other times they encounter a whirlwind romance that leads them down the aisle sooner rather than later. Of course, many high-profile relationships don’t work out in the long haul, but when the
engagement is short, there’s a greater risk that the love story will fall apart.
Still, celebs fall victim to the romance of it all, accepting engagements and setting the Internet on fire. Recently,
had every single one of us shook to the core over their Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson engagement, especially since they were only first rumored to be dating around a month ago. Although the jury’s still out on whether many of these speedy engagements will lead to lasting relationships, take a look at which celebs said yes faster than you can bat an eyelash:
1 of 16
Kaley Cuoco & Ryan Sweeting
Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting's relationship is the definition of a whirlwind romance. After an unforgettable summer together in 2013, Ryan proposed to the Big Bang Theory actress after just three months of dating.
Unsurprisingly, the couple didn't wait too long to get married either. In December of that same year, Kaley and Ryan tied the knot. Unfortunately, just shy of two years later Kaley filed for divorce from Ryan, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason they were calling it quits.
Since then, it seems like the blonde has completely moved on. She's engaged to be married yet again, this time to equestrian
. Congrats, guys! Karl Cook

Naya Rivera & Big Sean
The first time
Glee actress Naya Rivera and rapper Big Sean made their red-carpet debut as a couple was way back in April 2013. Looking back, it seems like so long ago that these two were a pair, but that's just because it started and ended extremely fast.
A mere six months after they hit the carpet for the first time, the couple announced that they were — you guessed it — planning on getting married. A year later, though, the couple called off the wedding and, according to
TMZ, it was because there were unresolved issues that therapy just couldn't fix. Yikes!

Evan Ross & Ashlee Simpson
Similar to Naya and Big Shawn,
Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross only dated for six months before getting engaged. The couple first made their debut as a couple in July 2013, and January 2014 was when Evan got down on one knee. Aww!
As far as we know, they have been happily married since 2014, so clearly, this time around is going way better than her first marriage. Originally, Ashlee was married to
Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, but the two got divorced in 2011. Nowadays, it looks like everyone's with who they're meant to be with. Wouldn't you agree?

Lamar Odom & Khloé Kardashian
NGL, we were all totally shocked when
Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom announced their engagement after only two weeks together. However, if you watched Khloé & Lamar religiously like we did, it was clear from the get-go that these two were totally obsessed and in love with one another.
Sadly, the couple officially divorced in 2016, after years of back and forth and Lamar's health complications. Khloé now shares a daughter with her boyfriend
Tristan Thompson. Considering the cheating scandal that occurred just days before she gave birth, though, there's no telling how long that relationship will last. But, who knows?! Maybe they'll get engaged, too!

Kevin Federline & Britney Spears

2004 was a big year for
. Why? Because it was the year she met the man that would change her life forever. After just three months of dating, the singer reportedly asked her boyfriend Britney Spears Kevin Federline to marry her. Although he said no at first, he later reversed his decision and proposed to her instead. Then, in September of that same year, the two tied the knot.
Although they divorced in 2007, a lot happened during the time that they were together. In 2005, for example, they welcomed their first son together,
Sean Preston. Then, in 2006, they welcomed their second son, Jayden James. Hey, their relationship may have gone south, but at least they got two beautiful sons out of it!

Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries
As we all know,
is now Kim Kardashian happily married and shares three gorgeous kids with rapper Kanye West. However, it wasn't that long ago that she was married to pro basketball player Kris Humphries for a whopping 72 days.
If you're wondering why their marriage was so short, it may have something to do with the fact that they had a pretty short engagement. Kris proposed to Kim after only 6 months, but she began to regret her decision shortly after the wedding. TBH, we don't blame her.

Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson
Just because celebrity couples sometimes have short engagements, that doesn't mean the marriage is necessarily going to end badly. Look at
Jessica Simpson and her hubby, Eric Johnson, for example!
Back in May 2010, Jess and Eric first began dating. Six months later, they got engaged! While many may say they moved too fast, the couple recently celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary, have two kids together and are still going strong. Congrats, you guys!

Katy Perry & Russell Brand
Back in 2009, fans of
were here for her whirlwind romance with Katy Perry Russell Brand. The couple made its first appearance together at Paris Fashion Week in October 2009, and less than three months later he presented her with a diamond ring.
Katy and Russell officially said "I do" in October 2010, but they ended up divorcing in July 2012. In an interview with
, the comedian explained the split, saying, "The marriage didn't last for a very long time, and I think that is to do with the undulating nature of fame." Hmm... maybe that's why a lot of celebrity relationships don't last! Billboard

Chad Kroeger & Avril Lavigne
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are yet another couple that got extremely serious, extremely fast. They got engaged in August 2012 after just six months of dating. Of course, the engagement only had fans wondering when and where the two would officially become Mr. and Mrs. Kroeger.
In July 2013, Avril and Chad said their vows in the South of France. While that sounds super romantic to us, they sadly didn't last and got a divorce two years later. These days, though, it seems that the Canadian crooner may have her sights on someone, well, richer. According to
People magazine, she may be dating Phillip Sarofim, the son of Egyptian American billionaire Fayez Sarofim. Whatever the case may be, we hope she's happy!

Josiah & Lauren Duggar
Short engagements are pretty typical when it comes to the Duggar family, which is why it's not all that surprising that TLC star
Josiah Duggar proposed to his now-wife Lauren Duggar after a mere six weeks of dating.
The good news is, Josiah and Lauren are still going strong to this day. Hmm... maybe people are right when they say, "When you know, you know." Here's to a long and happy marriage!

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna
As we all know,
's had it rough over the past few years. However, when he began dating Rob Kardashian in January 2016, it seemed like perhaps he was starting to do better. The 31-year-old thought the 30-year-old was the woman of his dreams because, after four short months of dating, he asked her to marry him. We know... we were SHOOK! Blac Chyna
Unfortunately, these two make another celeb couple who never made it to the altar. Instead, a bunch of drama ensued, which included Rob calling out the model in a social media rant, and Chyna allegedly
getting physical with Rob. Needless to say, the end of this relationship wasn't pretty, and it crashed and burned a month after they welcomed their daughter, Dream Kardashian, in November 2016.

Carey Mulligan & Marcus Mumford

In what is definitely the most adorable love story on this list,
Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford were actually pen pals back when they were kids. After getting to know one another so well on paper, it appeared they didn't need much time after they started dating to know that they were the perfect match.
Five months after they officially started dating, the couple got engaged and said "I Do" in 2012. Now, they have two children together and they're still going strong. Sounds like destiny to us!

Amal & George Clooney
For several years, movie star
George Clooney insisted that he would never get married again after his first marriage and subsequent divorce to Talia Balsam. Lo and behold, he changed his mind rather quickly when he found the actual love of his life, now known as Amal Clooney.
George and Amal dated for only six months before he did the unthinkable and popped the question. Since it seemed like he was dead set against marrying again, this came as quite the shock, but still, the couple got married and then had — wait for it — TWINS! NGL, we're
obsessed with this fam!

Pete Davidson & Ariana Grande
If you've been following
Ariana Grande's relationship with Pete Davidson, chances are you were speechless when you saw their matching tattoos and the additional Ari-inspired ink he got a couple of weeks later. In hindsight, though, the tattoos were hardly the most shocking thing to come out of their month(ish)-long relationship.
The Internet let out a collective gasp when the news surfaced on June 11, 2018, that, after not even a whole month, Pete asked and Ari said yes. From her recent Twitter activity, it seems like she's super excited to be engaged, but honestly, we're still trying to figure out why they made such a rash decision.

Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin
If you're like us, then you're shook by
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's romance. Granted, the two did date for a bit back in 2015 and we know how much of a fan Hailey's been of the "Friends" singer, but their recent engagement — which came only after a few weeks of being back together — definitely caught us off guard. After making their relationship official once again on May 27, 2018, Justin popped the question to Hailey on July 7 and, of course, she said yes!

We totally did not see this one coming! Even though
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have been on our radar recently, we had no idea that they would get engaged in only two months! TBH, we shouldn't be so surprised, though. It is the summer of quick engagements, after all. Now the question is: When will they tie the knot?
