Each year, dozens of celebrity couples get engaged. Some of the engagements last, others fizzle out quickly. Unfortunately, some of the biggest engagements of the year did not make it.
Many celebrities used their Instagram and Twitter feeds to announce engagements. The moment 2018 started, Ed Sheeran got engaged, and Paris Hilton got a ring from Chris Zylka. Hilton's engagement ended in November, a few weeks after Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's engagement fell apart.
2018 has also had a royal engagement already. While all the attention was on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming wedding in May, Princess Eugenie also got engaged — and then married — at St. George's Chapel in Windsor in 2018.
Here's a look at all the celebrity engagements so far in 2018.
