Gwyneth, 45, and American Horror Story creator Brad, 46, went public with their romance back in April 2015 at Robert Downey Jr.'s 50th birthday bash. But in March last year, the actress made their romance Instagram-official by sharing a sweet picture of the pair whilst wishing her partner a happy birthday. She simply captioned the snap, "Happy birthday, handsome."

The award-winning star has previously enjoyed a string of very high-profile romances, with the likes of Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck and her ex-husband Chris Martin, with whom she shares two children.

Rumours of an engagement first swirled in November, with Us Weekly claiming that the pair have been engaged for a year. "They both knew it would happen, but it wasn't a big thing to them because they were both in long marriages before. There wasn't a rush," a source told the publication.

The mother-of-two met Brad on the set of Glee, shortly after her "conscious uncoupling" from Coldplay musician Chris in 2014. Gwyneth has previously discussed her friendship with the singer, admitting that she is proud of their relationship as co-parents.

"As anybody who has been divorced knows, you have to put a lot aside to maintain the family and the practicalities of what that might mean and sometimes that’s quite tough on a personal level," the Hollywood star told Page Six, adding, "It's a commitment I make every day to my children and their father even though we're not in a romantic relationship."
