Sometimes, love hits you fast and hard and when you know, you know. Here are 23 celebrity couples who got engaged very fast.
After confirming rumors of a reconciliation (the couple briefly dated and split in 2016) by going on a PDA-filled vacation to the Bahamas, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are reportedly engaged. The duo—who have only been an item for a few weeks—have yet to announce the news themselves, but according to two eye-witnesses, Justin publicly popped the question in the Bahamas in between salsa dancing and making out.
Although Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard have reportedly known each other for years, the duo only dated for a few weeks before tying the knot in 2018 with a surprise ceremony at City Hall in New York City. “He proposed to me at Minetta Tavern and he didn’t have a ring, so I was like mmm, nah,” the 27-year-old said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “And then he took the paper clip that the bill was paid with and made me a ring, which I actually thought was really romantic.”
Khloé and Lamar knew very fast. They got engaged after two weeks of knowing each other and were married two weeks after that, in September 2009. They divorced in 2016.
Rob and Chyna got engaged after just four months of dating, but ultimately split before tying the knot. They have a daughter, Dream Kardashian, together.
Kardashian and Humphries’ infamous 72-day marriage was preceded by a swift-as-hell engagement—the NBA player popped the question three months after the duo went public with their relationship in 2011. Post their very-public divorce, Humphries auctioned off the engagement ring for a whopping $749,000 in 2013.
The man who was once considered Holllywood’s most notorious bachelor surprised the world when he proposed to Alamuddin in 2014 after just seven months of dating.

Vergara and Manganiello were an official item for six months before confirming their engagement in December 2014—the Magic Mike actor reportedly popped the question during a Christmas vacation in Hawaii. Despite a baseless claim in 2017 that the two were divorcing (which Vergara epically shut down on Instagram), the couple remains together today.

The duo eventually split in 2011 and share two children together, twins Max and Emme.

During a recent appearance on the HFPA in Conversation podcast, Thornton said of the divorce, "We just had different lifestyles. Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle...that’s the only reason we’re probably not still together, maybe. There was a different path in life we wanted to take."
