Megan made the engagement announcement on Wednesday by sharing a video of their intimate proposal with her Instagram following, citing that it took place on Tuesday, January 11.

Fox noted in her post’s lengthy caption that she and the 31-year-old musician ‘drank each other’s blood’ to celebrate the occasion.

‘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,’ began Megan, who first became romantically linked to MGK in May of 2020. 

She continued: ‘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 1.11.22,’ concluded the actress.
