Emma Stone, 31, is engaged to her partner, Dave McCary, 34, after two years of dating.

The couple’s engagement was announced earlier today in an Instagram post shared by McCary, a ‘Saturday Night Live’ writer and segment director.

It features a photo of the pair smiling, with the ‘La La Land’ actor holding her hand close to the camera to show she is wearing an engagement ring.

McCary captioned the post with simply a heart emoji.

The post includes a rather blurry shot of Stone’s engagement ring, which appears to be a large clear-cut diamond set on a slim, diamond-studded band.

Well-wishers rushed in to congratulate the couple.

“Wow yes love exists!!,” wrote actor Ryan Simpkins.

“Congratulations to two of the most wonderful, loving, and creative people we know. Ilana and I are so happy for you!” wrote American tennis star Billie Jean King, whom Stone depicted in 2017’s ‘Battle of the Sexes’.

“Nice and blurry!!” joked comedian Julio Torres.

Either the pair didn’t realise the ring was blurry before uploading the photo or they simply didn’t mind.

With other celebrity - and non-celebrity - couples, the engagement ring ‘reveal’ is often the focal point of the image shared on social media.

Brides-to-be including Jennifer Lopez, Princess Beatrice and Miranda Kerr have even shared separate close-up shots of their rings.
