Mark Ronson has confirmed his engagement to Grace Gummer.
The couple sparked rumors that they were engaged last month after Meryl’s daughter was seen wearing a dazzling diamond on her ring finger.
Mark, 45, confesses to asking the question, telling the podcast The FADER Uncovered, “I got engaged last weekend.”

He recalled his first kiss with his fiancée, 35, and admitted it was a “corny” experience.
He joked, “There’s a plaque for that somewhere. There’s a first kiss, a very corny Hallmark first kiss plaque.
“But no, it was forever, it will be etched. It’s still my record.’
In March, it was first reported that Mark and Grace were in a relationship with the duo who have been dating since last year.

Earlier this year, it was claimed that Mark and Grace were an item after they first paired up over a cozy dinner in New York in September.
The relationship comes after Mark split from girlfriend Genevieve Gaunt last year, while Grace became single following the divorce from husband Tay Strathairn in April 2020.
A source told The sun in March: “He’s definitely dating Grace. Things have become romantic.
“Lockdown restrictions have made it more difficult, especially now that he’s back in the UK, but they’re seeing how it goes and getting along well.”
It was also reported that Mark has already met Grace’s famous mother Meryl, who has been married to sculptor Don Gummer since 1978, and has been won over.
The source added: ‘They seemed to like him, which is a good sign. It would be disheartening for a man to try to charm Meryl Streep.”

This isn’t the first time Mark has dated the offspring of an A-list star, as in 2003 he proposed to Rashida, the daughter of music producer Quincy Jones.
The hitmaker has since been in a relationship with actress Genevieve Gaunt and SNL talent manager Rebecca, after they split from wife Josephine De La Baume four years ago.
The couple filed for divorce in 2017 after just over five years together, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.

Meanwhile, Grace, who starred in Mr Robot and American Horror Story: Freak Show, filed for divorce from her husband Tay Strathairn in April 2020, just 42 days after the couple tied the knot.
Mark previously shared how working in the studio “fills a void” in him as he often forms close relationships with his collaborators, but said he would trade his achievements for children.
He told Radio Times in October: ‘I never thought that [work] was a substitute for having a family of my own, but I definitely think it fills some of that void more than going into an office.
“I have these warm relationships that maybe… [satisfy] part of my soul that needs to be fulfilled. But trust me, I’d trade it in for kids.’
