Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman – aka #couplesgoals – are engaged. But, unlike many in celebdom, the actors did not rush to share the news across their social media platforms. In fact, they have been engaged since February.
“Oh yeah, I’m engaged,” Kravitz confirmed after a Rolling Stone journalist enquired about her ring. “I haven’t told anyone yet — I mean, I haven’t told the world. I wanted to keep it private.”
Glusman, it transpires, had been planning to propose on a trip to Paris, but, due to interfering work schedules, switched to their living room – with candles and a Nina Simone soundtrack to set the mood instead. “I was in sweatpants,” recalled Kravitz. “I could feel his heart beating so fast — I was like, ‘Baby, are you OK?’ I was actually worried about him!”
Glusman’s response was to drop down on to one knee, which prompted Kravitz, in turn, to quip back, “Yes, stretch! Stretch to calm your heart down!”, before she realized what was happening. Needless to say, Glusman nailed the ring choice. “And I love that it wasn’t this elaborate plan in Paris. It was at home, in sweatpants,” she added.
The couple met two years ago through mutual friends. Glusman, 30, had a crush on Kravitz, 29, from afar, so an evening at a bar where both would be in attendance was orchestrated. “I can be my weirdest self around him,” said Kravitz. “It’s so relaxing to be around someone where you can be 100% how you feel.”
