Update (January 7, 2014):

Emma and Evan may have yet to publicly discuss their supposed engagement, but that hasn’t stopped one famous friend from spreading the happy news.

“Congrats to @RobertsEmma and Evan Peters for getting engaged,” actor and celebrity photographer Tyler Shields tweeted January 6.

He also shared a dramatic photo of the couple with Emma mid-flight and Evan standing by to catch her. “It’s important to marry someone who is there to catch you when you fall,” he quipped. 

Original story (January 6, 2014):

Emma Roberts and Evan Peters decided to ring in the New Year with an actual ring. The 22-year-old actress (and niece of Julia Roberts) and her 26-year-old boyfriend are engaged, according to Extra.

Evan reportedly got down on one knee while the couple were celebrating the holidays in New York City. Emma said “yes” and the couple (along with her new diamond ring!) flew to London for New Year’s. No details yet on when or where they plan to tie the knot.

The American Horror Story co-stars began dating in 2012 and seemed to have one of Hollywood’s sweetest romances until last summer. In early July the pair made headlines after a heated dispute in a Montreal hotel that ended in Emma’s arrest.

The July 7 fight left the actress with bruises on her legs while Evan reportedly had a bloody nose and bite mark. Emma spent the night in jail; she was released after Evan declined to press charges.

“It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding,” the couple’s reps said at the time of the altercation. “Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.”

And boy, have they seemed to move past it...

What do you make of the news? Think they should give it more time, or was July just an isolated incident? Share your feels (and wedding suggestions!) in the comments.
