Is Ryan en­gaged or even mar­ried?

The Mercury News Weekend - - NEWS - By Martha Ross mross@ ba­yare­anews­group.com CELEBRI­TIES

Meg Ryan took to In­stra­gram Thurs­day to an­nounce that she’s en­gaged to her long­time rocker boyfriend John Mel­len­camp.

“EN­GAGED!” the 56-yearold “Sleep­less in Seat­tle” star cap­tioned an im­age of two hu­mor­ously drawn stick fig­ures that pre­sum­ably show her and Mel­len­camp, 67.

The In­sta­gram post fol­lows re­ports that she and Mel­len­camp had tied the knot in a re­cent pri­vate cer­e­mony. The Daily Mail posted pho­tos of Ryan out and about in New York City Wed­nes­day, sport­ing what ap­peared to be a di­a­mond ring and wed­ding band on that fin­ger. Ac­cord­ing to the tabloid OK!, the wed­ding took place at the rocker’s ranch out­side Bloom­ing­ton, In­di­ana.

“(They) re­al­ized they can’t live with­out each other,” a source told OK!, adding that the cer­e­mony took place in front of 20 close fam­ily and friends. “There was a buf­fet and a band, and John even ser­e­naded Meg with a new bal­lad he wrote,” the source said.

How­ever, OK! doesn’t spec­ify when this sup­posed cer­e­mony took place.

Ryan was pre­vi­ously mar- ried to Den­nis Quaid from 1991 to 2001, but broke up be­cause, Ryan told In­Style, he was un­faith­ful to her. Their son, Jack Quaid, 26, has fol­lowed in his par­ents’ foot­steps and be­come an ac­tor.

Ryan’s tabloid-style af­fair with Rus­sell Crowe, her “Proof of Life” co-star, may have tar­nished the “Amer­ica’s Sweet­heart” im­age that sur­rounded her af­ter she starred in such pop­u­lar 1980s and 1990s rom-coms as “When Harry Met Sally,” “Sleep­less in Seat­tle” and “You’ve Got Mail.”

Mean­while, Mel­len­camp, the Grammy-win­ning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in­ductee, has been mar­ried three times and has five chil­dren. The “Hurt So Good” singer and Ryan were first ro­man­ti­cally linked in 2010 and have bro­ken up and got­ten back to­gether sev­eral times since, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Dur­ing a pe­riod when they were sep­a­rated in 2015, Mel­len­camp dated su­per­model Christie Brink­ley. Ryan, mean­while, fo­cused on rear­ing Daily, her 13-year-old daugh­ter whom she adopted from China in 2006. Ryan and Mel­len­camp rec­on­ciled in 2017, and be­came qui­etly en­gaged, ac­cord­ing to OK!
