Courtney Stodden and Chris Sheng are engaged! But who is the on-again, off-again fiance who finally popped the question? The 26-year-old Celebrity Big Brother alum is getting hitched to Chris Sheng, 41, a director and producer who worked on quite a few films including Knock Knock 2 and Flipped. Sheng is also a businessman and entrepreneur.
The couple has been dating for about four years, ever since Courtney’s 2017 split with their now ex-husband. Courtney and ex-husband announced their separation in 2017, before filing for divorce the next year. Courtney’s divorce from Doug Hutchison was finalized in January of last year.
“I’ve been dating the same guy for three years, Chris [Sheng],” Courtney Stodden told to Us Weekly in March 2020. “I am working on myself every day.” Chris Sheng, after four years of their on-and-off relationship, finally popped the question. The couple’s May 28th rendezvous ended with a resounding yes!
And the ring is HUGE! Courtney “gagged” over how beautiful it was. It looks to be the shape and cut of a “cushion” ring. Where the cut is square in shape with rounded-out edges. There is currently no estimate on how many carats that ring is packing, but it’s certainly a looker. It’s got quite the shine!
When the pair announced their proposals on social media, Chris Sheng swooned over his new fiancée, writing a heartfelt caption on his Instagram saying, “On Friday, May 28 I proposed to the love of my life and they said Yes!” He continued by saying that he feels “so blessed and fortunate.”
Chris Sheng also wrote that he and Courtney “have both grown so much since we first met, and the fact that we have both been able to grow into better, stronger, more secure individuals while still being in a relationship together makes me have faith that this partnership will last a lifetime. For the first time, we’re both experiencing unconditional love. The truest kind of love. The kind where we may not always like each other but will ALWAYS love each other. I promise to always be your rock, support, and shoulder to lean on – no matter what. I got you. Ily.”
While Sheng’s caption says it all, Stodden kept it simple with their caption, writing, “I said yes … OH and the ring made me gag it’s so beautiful.”
The pair spent their happy engagement day poolside. Congrats, Courtney!
