Australian actress Rebel Wilson, 42, is set to tie the knot with her girlfriend, Ramona Agruma, after the couple announced their engagement on Instagram over the weekend. The surprise proposal was pulled off by the team at Disneyland Weddings, with Wilson expressing her thanks to them and jeweler Tiffany & Co. for their roles in the romantic gesture.
In the announcement post, Wilson shared a series of images showing herself and Agruma wearing matching pink and white striped sweaters, each with a black heart emblazoned on the chest. In one of the images, the couple can be seen sharing a kiss as Agruma extends her arm to display her stunning engagement ring.
The Pitch Perfect actress had previously spoken to PEOPLE about her relationship with Agruma, whom she met through a friend. “We spoke on the phone for weeks before meeting. And that was a really good way to get to know each other,” she said in May. “It was a bit old-school in that sense — very romantic.”
Despite always thinking she was looking for a husband, Wilson was “shocked” at how deep and instant her connection with Agruma was. In an interview with PEOPLE, she explained, “I always was a bit of a girls’ girl and had deep friendships with women, but this was the first time that it was a romantic connection and I was just shocked. And then I was like, ‘Oh, well, what if that was just part of my personality that I was repressing and wasn’t exploring?’ And maybe I should have 10 years earlier. My journey is what it is, but it’s just awesome now to be in a relationship.”
Wilson has always been known for her sense of humor and quirky personality, but the news of her engagement has also highlighted her bravery in exploring her own sexuality and embracing unexpected connections in life. Earlier this year, she launched a new dating app called Fluid, which aims to break down traditional gender and sexuality categories in the world of dating.
In an interview with InStyle, Wilson shared that she’s been reading a lot about sexuality lately, realizing that it is a complex and nuanced topic. “I still don’t know 100 percent what category I would fit in,” she said, “but I’m just in a great same-sex relationship now, and it’s awesome.”
Wilson’s story serves as an inspiration for others who may be struggling with their own identity and desires. As societal norms continue to evolve, more and more people are opening up to the possibility of non-traditional relationships and exploring their sexuality without fear of judgment. Wilson’s openness and honesty about her journey will undoubtedly help to pave the way for others to do the same.
The news of Wilson’s engagement has also been met with an outpouring of support from fans and colleagues alike. Actress and writer Mindy Kaling was among those to offer their congratulations, tweeting, “This is the best news!! Congrats!!!”.
As the world continues to celebrate the news of Rebel Wilson and Ramona Agruma’s engagement, we can all take inspiration from their story and remember that true love knows no bounds.
