London: Anne Hathaway has announced she is engaged to actor and jewellery designer boyfriend Adam Shulman.
‘The Devil Wears Prada’ star confirmed her engagement after she was photographed wearing a ring with her boyfriend Shulman in Brooklyn.
Shulman, an actor and jewellery designer, collaborated with Kwiat Heritage Jewels to create the sparkler.
Although the pair had been seeing each other since 2008, they were discreet about it and were not photographed together until the next year.
“We hit if off immediately but it took us a pretty long time to get together,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying in the September issue of U.K.’s Marie Claire magazine.
“He thought that I had a boyfriend and I thought that he had a girlfriend, so I thought that I’d better keep my distance because I didn’t want to be that girl,” she said.
She described her union with Shulam as more ‘mellow’ than her previous liaisons.
“Mellow doesn’t always make for a good story, but it makes for a good life,” she said.
Speaking about the relationship the 29-year-old star said that she was looking forward to spending time as a bachelorrette when she fell for him.
“Adam totally ruined my plan. I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time and then I fall in love like a fool,” she said.
Her romance with Shulman followed a disastrous relationship with Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri, who was arrested on fraud charges after claiming links to the Pope while making dodgy deals, and was later sentenced to four and a half years in prison.
‘The Princess Diary’ star would next be playing Catwoman in the new Batman movie, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ alongside Christian Bale.
