If you haven’t seen the news yet, brace yourself: Scottsdale native and Oscar-winning actress Emma Stone, 31, and her partner Dave McCary, 34, are engaged.
Well, they didn’t announce it as much as they allowed people across the internet to deduce the information from a picture and heart emoji posted to Instagram. However, CNN reports that a representative for Stone confirmed the engagement.
It was a nondescript Wednesday evening when McCary, a filmmaker and “Saturday Night Live” segment director, posted a photo of himself and Stone cheesing for the camera on Instagram.
The blurry ring on Stone’s finger, however, is what earned the post more than 100,000 likes and numerous congratulatory comments from the likes of Billie Jean King — whom Stone portrayed in 2017’s “Battle of the Sexes” — and Aidy Bryant. Meanwhile, McCary’s Instagram following more than doubled after the post.
For those who haven’t been caught up on Stone’s personal life since her more high-profile romance with “The Amazing Spider-Man” costar Andrew Garfield, we’ve got you covered: Here is an approximate timeline of McCary and Stone’s relationship leading up to their engagement.
When Emma Stone and Dave McCary met
Stone and McCary reportedly met through “Saturday Night Live” three years ago when she hosted an episode in December 2016. She performed in a sketch called “Wells for Boys” that McCary directed.
Word of their relationship spread in October 2017, landing the writer in Google searches across the world.
“Emma Stone has a new boyfriend,” Page Six announced in an “exclusive” report on Oct. 25, 2017.
The couple’s rare public appearances
Stone and McCary’s occasional outings to restaurants, basketball games and movie premieres were documented in paparazzi photos over the last two years. However, the two kept a low profile in 2018.
After a meet-up in the spring with ex Andrew Garfield in May, Stone’s relationship status with McCary was questioned by multiple outlets. But they appeared back on after a source told Us Weekly about Stone’s roller skating party in December of 2018.
What led up to the engagement
Stone and McCary were back in the headlines in 2019.
In January, McCary accompanied Stone to the Screen Actors Guild awards in Los Angeles; the actress was nominated for her roles in Netflix’s “Maniac” as well as awards season darling “The Favourite.”
The two were spotted out on a shopping trip in New York City in April and appeared to be transporting a sack of laundry — because, stars, they’re just like us! Rumors of their engagement spread that month when Stone was pictured with a diamond on her ring finger.
The couple was spotted out in public as recently as Dec. 1 while running errands in New York City.
