Actress Kat Dennings and her rocker boyfriend Andrew W.K. turned to Instagram last Thursday to tell the world — in very few words — that they were officially engaged.
In a post that included closeups of the 2 Broke Girls star wearing her new three-stone engagement ring, the 34-year-old simply wrote, “Don’t mind if I do.” On his Instagram, Andrew W.K., 42, included the same three photos and captioned them with no words, just a diamond ring emoji. Dennings’ commented on her fiancé’s post with a string of 22 heart emojis.
Dennings has 4.5 million Instagram followers and Andrew W.K. (whose initials stand for Wilkes-Krier) has 151,000. Their posts also caught the attention of high-profile media outlets, such as pagesix.com, whowhatwear.com, refinery29.com, purewow.com and insider.com.
Dennings’ understated post earned 781,000 likes, many of which included heartfelt congratulations and positive comments about the bling, which was called “one of the most unique celebrity rings” of the year thus far by a diamond expert interviewed by pagesix.com.
The actress’s new ring features a large emerald- or elongated cushion-cut diamond flanked by two trapezoid-cut diamonds in a platinum or white gold setting. Jewelry-industry experts believe the center stone weighs between 2.5 and 4 carats and may be worth $75,000 to $150,000, depending on the size and quality of the stones. The three-stone setting — with a classic, tapered look — bucks the trend of solitaire styles chosen by most of the celebrities who popped the question in 2021.
Dennings currently co-stars with Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn in Wandavision, a miniseries that can be seen on the Disney+ streaming service.
