Do you hear that? It’s the sound of wedding bells ringing! We’re so ready for 2022 to be the year of love — and so are some of Hollywood’s hottest couples. 2022 could be the year that longtime partners finally take a major step in their relationship by getting engaged. Or perhaps some stars will surprise us by revealing that they said “yes” and kept it hush-hush for months. Regardless, we can already feel that love is in the air, and 2022 is bound to see a slew of Hollywood couples and stars get engaged.
Now, we’re not saying that we have too many high hopes for who will pop the question and who will say “yes,” but if there’s one A-list pair we have our eyes on (and let’s be real, our eyes have been on them for a while) it’s Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. This couple was already engaged back in the early aughts, but since they got back together in the spring of 2021, we’ve been waiting to see if the two will finally walk down the aisle.
First thing’s first, though: This new and improved version of Bennifer will probably get engaged before they officially tie the knot. There have been signs the couple could get engaged this year, and plenty of reports seem to suggest that this is the time for Bennifer. But we’ll just be over here, waiting patiently and envisioning Lopez’s reaction when Affleck proposes. So, who else could we see on this list? Maybe Halle Berry and her steady beau Van Hunt? Or maybe Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles will surprise us with a new relationship milestone. Oh, to live vicariously through these stars!
Check out our round-up of celebrity engagements of 2022 below.
