Hilary Swank’s Non-Traditional Engagement Ring Is Shinier Than an Oscar
Engagement news is just as exciting as wedding news and makes us just as happy as baby news, so we’re sending big congratulations to Hilary Swank and boyfriend Ruben Torres. They’ve just announced that they’re tying the knot! The Oscar-winning actress and former pro tennis player have been dating for just under a year but are more than ready to make the big commitment, and you know how much we love a wedding!
Posting a pic of the pair to Twitter snuggling close and Hilary showing off what appears to be a whopper of an emerald engagement ring, she captioned the pic with, “Sooooooo this happened!!! #heputaringonit LOL #loveisintheair.”
According to People, the couple was off on a trip to the BNP Paribas Tennis Open in Palm Springs, when Torres popped the question. Hilary, who also added a pic to Instagram said, “Went on a hike and this happened! I am so happy to share with you all this exciting and incredible news… the engagement to my dear Ruben!!! #Engaged”
We can’t wait for the big day!
