Miranda Kerr Is Engaged To Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel And They’re Just Perfect
There’s another power couple in Los Angeles now that Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel are engaged. Spiegel, the 26-year-old cofounder of Snapchat, released a statement Wednesday announcing that he had proposed to Kerr, a 33-year-old supermodel, after just a year of dating. Well, isn’t that just great. The only thing making me feel a little less cynical about two very attractive (is it OK to admit I think Spiegel is attractive because of his checking account? I have no shame) and loaded human beings getting married is the completely cheesy and adorably geeky way Kerr announced the engagement: on Snapchat, with a custom filter and Bitmoji cartoon of the couple in the heat of the proposal. Kerr reposted to Instagram and captioned the picture, “I said yes!!!” with way too more hearts and smiley faces than I can normally handle in one post.
The couple met at a Louis Vuitton dinner in New York City in 2014, according to The Daily Mail. But they weren’t publicly dating until June 2015, which is usually how long it takes me to go from an awkward greeting to getting a guy, too, so I feel you, Kerr. Apparently, sources told Us Weekly last week that Spiegel was ready to propose because he was so “smitten” with the Australian model.
This year, the couple also bought a $12 million mansion that Net-a-Porter called “fit for magazines,” in the Brentwood neighborhood of L.A., and live like two, well, married people. Kerr said in a January cover story for The Edit, “He’s 25, but acts like he’s 50.” She continued, “He’s not out partying. He goes to work in [L.A.’s] Venice. He comes home. We don’t go out. We’d rather be at home and have dinner, go to bed early.”
Kerr was previously married to Orlando Bloom, from 2010 to 2013, and they have a five-year-old son, Flynn, together. Kerr told The Edit she has a very “modern” relationship with her ex for the sake of Flynn, which sounds too easy to be totally true, but after their divorce, she did move to Malibu from New York to make sharing custody easy. She and Bloom had a rule about romance and sharing their son with a third partner. “We had to know the person for six months and feel good about them,” she told The Edit in January. “Evan met Flynn, so, yeah, things are going well. Orlando thinks he’s great.”
With Bloom, Kerr, and Spiegel as parents and providers, I sort of want to trade places with Flynn more than the bride to be, just because I bet his room is awesome.
