Why Dakota Johnson's Ring Is Sparking Engagement Rumors

Viva la wedding bells? It looks like Chris Martin may have put a ring on longtime girlfriend Dakota Johnson's finger after the Fifty Shades of Grey star was spotted wearing a huge sparkler on her left hand. In photos obtained by Page Six on Dec. 14, 2020, the brunette beauty was seen rocking a massive emerald green stone as she shopped around West Hollywood one week prior. Although the ring wasn't a traditional diamond, Johnson is known for having unconventional taste and a colored stone seems right up her alley.

The sighting comes months after the musician reportedly purchased a "commitment ring" for the actress in July 2020, according to The Sun. However, theĀ Daily Mail reported that a spokesperson for the Coldplay singer denied that Martin bought Johnson a ring. Discrepancy aside, a source told The Sun, "Chris has bought her a ring as a sign of his intent, and no one would be surprised if an engagement announcement followed."

It's about time Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin tied the knot

Fans have had their fingers crossed for Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin to say "I do" since the couple first linked up in 2018. The pair hit a rough patch in June 2019, but quickly reconciled thanks to the help of Martin's ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow. In August of that year, a source told Us Weekly that The Politician actress, who divorced from Martin in 2016, is "the one who pushed them to do it," adding, "Gwyneth is happy if Chris is happy."

Since their brief hiccup, Johnson and Martin have been going strong. According to The Sun, the couple grew very close while quarantining together in Los Angeles throughout the coronavirus pandemic. "Chris and Dakota have had a great summer and it has really cemented their relationship," a source told the outlet in July 2020. "They've had ups and downs in the past, and although Chris was worried they wanted different things, Dakota is super-happy and ready to commit." It sounds like this couple is ready to take their relationship to the next level.
