Surprise! Laura Prepon and Ben Foster are engaged.
The two made their red carpet debut as a couple at the premiere for The Girl on the Train, and Prepon was wearing one big, sparkly diamond ring on a certain finger. But if you weren’t even aware that the two were dating, you’re not alone.
They’ve been kind of rumored to be a couple ever since they were seen hanging out together in New York City back in July. But they’ve been buds since they were 18 — Foster is good friends with Prepon’s That ’70s Show co-star Danny Masterson — so while there was plenty of speculation, they were never confirmed to be in a relationship. Plus, there was the added drama of Foster being in a long on-again, off-again engagement with Robin Wright.
But now, we apparently have our answer. The two are headed down the aisle — a source confirmed to People magazine that the engagement is legit.

So here’s where some new speculation begins. What will their wedding look like? It’s no secret that Prepon is a big name in the church of Scientology. Foster’s involvement in the church (or lack thereof) is a little murkier. He has plenty of ties to Scientologists (like Masterson and his family), but he’s never confirmed or denied whether he’s a member of the church himself.
So, if Prepon and Foster do decide on a Scientologist wedding, what would it look like? The Church of Scientology offers five different kinds of ceremonies, ranging from pretty typical Western weddings to “traditional” weddings that are full of ’50s-inspired gender roles — that one also includes a vow that the husband must buy a cat for his wife if she wants one.
While there’s not a lot of information publicly available about Scientologist weddings — the church is notorious for being secretive around outsiders — we’re sure Prepon and Foster’s will be beautiful regardless. Cheers to the happy couple!
