People keeping their relationships low-key and then popping up engaged (or in some cases, already married) has been a thing for some time now. Taylour Paige is the latest star to surprise everyone by sharing that she’s getting ready to say “I do.” The actress uploaded an image of herself with her arms wrapped around her fiancé. And while we don’t get to see his face, we do get a clear view of her engagement rock.
“Out of nowhere!! You appeared and showed me that the way that I love, was always the way because it’s your way too. #tiffanylock @tiffanyandco,” she captured the image.
Yes, the Zola actress is engaged to a mystery man. Social media sleuths haven’t figured out who he is yet. Some fans speculated that it was simply an ad for Tiffany & Co. because she’s wearing their lock bangle and disclosed such little information. But it’s giving the real thing.
The engagement came as a surprise to fans as many thought the 31-year-old was still dating former Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams. Paige and Williams began dating in 2019 and were seen on several red carpet events together and shared their love on social media. In an interview with GQ, the actor told the story of how they met in September 2018 at a Grammy party.
“I was in the middle of a conversation with a very close friend, and she walked by,” Williams said. “Everything got quiet. I stopped that conversation and said, ‘I’ll be right back.’ I just zoomed in on her. The rest of the night, we were this close to each other, talking, laughing, dancing, and ended up together in conversation until six in the morning.”
And when he turned 40, she honored him in a very sweet Instagram post.
“You leave us all breathless because you are true,” she wrote. “Thank you for the most expansive love I have, I will ever know.”
The two called it quits silently at some point in 2021, but nobody is exactly sure when. By August 2021, there was speculation that she moved on when she was spotted getting cozy with actor and musician Kane Ritchotte. While she never made their thing public public in the same way she did her time with Williams, Ritchotte did post pictures of her on his page, and she left affectionate comments under them.
But back to the present. Paige has been keeping her relationship dealings mute as of recent, so we may not get much more regarding details about her new romance before the wedding day. Either way, we’re excited for her. And what a ring!
