Star Magazine and the National Enquirer have very similar stories about Evangeline Lilly and Dominic Monaghan this week. Both are claiming that Evangeline and Dominic are engaged again, and this time they’re seriously planning for a wedding. The Enquirer’s version is a lot nicer – they go on and on about how Dominic and Lilly invited his parents to Las Vegas, and announced their engagement all over again:

After an aborted plan to marry two years ago, the on-again/off-again couple is so serious this time about saying “I do” that they recently invited Dominic’s parents to join them in Las Vegas – so they could get their blessing, say friends.

“Dominic and Evangeline have decided that now is the time to make it official,” revealed an insider. “They’ve been through breakups and makeups and feel that their love has stood the test of time.”

Dominic’s parent’s “couldn’t have been happier” with their plans to marry.

I really like them as a couple. I respect that Evangeline, who could be some over-exposed professional “Hot Girl” like Megan Fox, chooses instead to be low-key, with a boyfriend that she seems to have a real connection to. I kind of think their engagement really is back on. They got back together in February of 2008, after a separation of only a few months. Star version of the whole engagement drama is perhaps having a Vegas elopement:

Lovebirds Dominic Monaghan and Evangeline Lilly are thinking of taking a trip down the aisle in Sin City! While [hanging in Las Vegas]… “they were in such great moods, they looked really sweet with each other and started talking about how much fun it would be to have a Las Vegas wedding,” a source tells Star. “They seemed tickled by the idea of eloping and marrying at some place like the Little White Wedding Chapel.”

[They] broke off their original engagement in November 2007 after three years together but reunited a few months later. They’re now stronger than ever.

“The distance between them has been a problem, since she’s shooting Lost in Hawaii and he’s in LA. But it won’t be an issue when the show ends. They can be in the same city,” says an insider. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they wed sooner, though. She can’t wait to be his wife!”

Yeah, I’m not sure. Evangeline is supposed to be pretty religious, and I could see her wanting and needing a big church wedding. But then again, maybe not. She’s obviously got a strain of dirty hippie in there too, so maybe a Vegas wedding is where it’s at!

    Honestly, I didn’t realize their engagement was ever off. This kind of surprises me. I saw her as someone who would always be looking to trade up. She says she’s tired of Hollywood and maybe wants to stop acting, but I’ll have to see it to believe it.

    I really like Evangeline and Dominic, but their characters on Lost drives/drove me nuts!

    Love them as a real life couple though.

    They’re engaged every summer. lol Frankly, I don’t think they had ever broken up. They just let the break up rumors ride so the press would leave them alone. And as for elopement…Dom has said again and again that the fellowship guys will be at his wedding. So if they do marry, look for a convergence of Elijah, Billy, and the other Rings actors to one place. Especially Elijah and Billy. lol

    didn’t she deny, in a recent interview, that she was even with him? odd if she was engaged to him.

    Good luck to them, whoever they are, may the wind always be at their backs, etc.

    Does anyone even care about these guys anymore now that LOST is over? Will they find other work? By the way… the season finale of LOST sucked. Just sayin’
