Kylie Minogue, 47, is engaged to 28 year-old actor Joshua Sasse

Exclusive... Kylie Minogue And Her New Boyfriend Seen Out In London
We haven’t talked about Kylie Minogue’s love life in some time. She’s never been married. She was engaged to Olivier Martinez back in 2007, they split up amid reports that he was cheating (which she denied and she also credited him for helping her through breast cancer treatment). Then she dated Andrés Velencoso from 2008 to 2013, he’s a hot Spanish model and is about ten years younger than she is. Kylie admitted that breakup hit her hard and said that “there’s still heartbreak and emotional sadness and all of the things that come with bad break-ups, even if you’re not married.

Now Aussie Kylie, 47, is engaged for the second time. She met British actor Joshua Sasse, 28, during a guest stint she did on Sasse’s ABC musical, Galavant, in which he plays the lead. They’ve been together since last fall and did the very British thing of announcing their engagement in The Daily Telegraph. (Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter also broke their engagement news in The Telegraph.)

Wonderwall has some more background on this. They allegedly got engaged in January, and Kylie was rocking a giant engagement ring at the NME awards last week:

According to the U.K.’s The Sun, Joshua has been called Kylie his “fiance” and was doing so at the NME Awards.

“Kylie may have been keeping tight-lipped, but Josh isn’t as keen to keep it a secret,” a source said. “He was proudly calling her his fiance to several guests and even joked that being with her meant he wouldn’t have any trouble getting into parties.”

The Sun believes that Joshua proposed while on a Swiss skiing trip in January.

Kylie, in the past, has gushed about her man, once saying, “I have a love of my life which is just a beautiful thing. I am kind of on cloud nine most of the time because of Mr Joshua Sasse, my beau.”

Last year, she told You magazine that the 19-year age gap wasn’t a concern to her.

“I can’t actually put into words how happy I am,” she said. “We just completely fit together. He gets me, I get him.”

I’m younger than Kylie and it’s very hard for me to imagine dating a guy under 30. He’s not incredibly young though, and he seems established in his career. (Plus he’s so hot!) Maybe they just hit it off.

Here’s Kylie’s engagement ring. It looks like a precious stone (is that aquamarine?) surrounded by two lines of diamonds. I’ve never seen a ring like that before and it’s gorgeous. It’s a little big for my tastes but damn it’s pretty. I can’t say the same for that doily dress with those silver platform shoes.

    I love Kylie and I am so happy for her.

  2. Lozface says:

    So happy for my Kylie!!! He seems like such a gorgeous man and I’m so glad she’s finally found the one. They both look smitten. Love the ring too – very unique!

    I love that he was cheering for the Wallabies with her too. That will please her Aussie fans!!!

    So many of her song lyrics are running through my head to go with this, but I guess I will go with ‘it was love at first sight’!

    – a Kylie megafan

  3. GlimmerBunny says:

    He really is super hot ans she looks a lot younger than her age. I wish them the best!

  4. NewWester says:

    Hopefully the relationship and marriage works out for Kylie and she put more thought into it than her acting career. That “blink and you miss it ” part in the movie “San Andreas” was just a waste. As a big fan I felt embarrassed for her

  5. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Congrats I guess,

    But this guy was talking about his wife in magazine interviews last year? So what happened to her? He was talking about her as recently as last August and then was first photographed with Kylie in September?

  6. Nancy says:

    If they’re happy and the twenty year difference doesn’t bother them, good for them.

  7. leigh says:

    YES!!! Lucky Kylie, he’s yummy.
    They seem very happy together.

  8. Lucy2 says:

    Galavant is only 28? I would have guessed mid 30s. She looks great.
    That’s a big age difference, but congrats and good luck to them.

    • ichsi says:

      Yeah, he’s only one year older than I am, I did not expect that. I don’t really see this last, but they’re both successful adults over 25 and I won’t begrudge her the fun.

  9. CFY says:

    LOVE Kylie and I like this guy on Galavant. I think a lot of her fans side eye him because of the age and for whatever reason, they think he’s an Amber Heard type. So the comments on her social media can be pretty rude and a good example of fans thinking they can say whatever they want to their favorite celebs. I wish them both happiness and I hope he treats her like the queen she is!

    • Kitten says:

      I mean…Kylie is a beautiful woman. Is it that shocking to people that a younger guy would be attracted to her?

      • Celebwatch says:

        A guy twenty years younger who has a thriving career of his own and wants to marry her, presumably for life? Yes.

      • Kitten says:

        Or maybe he’s an adult who is mature enough to think through those consequences.
        And maybe she’s an adult who knows that this might not last forever and she’s ok with that.

      • Dangles says:

        They’re adults? Thanks for pointing that out.

      • Kitten says:

        @ Dangles- Your sarcasm aside (it must be so exhausting to be you, man) it does seem that the fact that they are old enough to understand the consequences of a May/December romance is being lost on people.

      • Dangles says:

        Exhausting? Nah. I’ve learnt to pace myself. That’s why I don’t bombard this site with multiplie long winded posts.

      • Bridget says:

        But what else will people read while they’re trying to avoid working?

  10. Lucy says:

    I love Kylie!! Congrats to both of them.

  11. Santia says:

    The hypocrisy is astounding. If it were the other way around, the man would have been crucified. But okay …

    • detritus says:

      25/30 seems to be around the age people stop caring.
      Also I’m sorry, but an age difference isn’t equal on both sides from a social commentary perspective.

      One is commonly an abuse of social and economic power. The other is bucking social norms which deride older women as unattractive and sexless.

      • Kitten says:

        But if you ignore this entirely then you get to scream about double standards and that’s always fun, right?

      • Dangles says:

        “One is commonly an abuse of social and economic power. The other is bucking social norms which deride older women as unattractive and sexless.”

        That’s a slick rationalization. But the OP’s point about hypocrisy stands.

        I don’t begrudge Kylie for getting with a younger partner. Just like I don’t begrudge Leo et al for doing the same. But I’m not ageist.

    • Carol says:

      @Santia Totally agree! Still get skeeved out by the age discrepancy. Seriously when he will be 38 and just about to hit mid life crisis, his wife will be 57. But who knows. They do look good together unlike many couples with a 20 year difference. Hope they remain happy for a long time.

    • Alexandra says:

      Good for them, but Johnny Depp got crucified for basically the same age difference. Not saying that his conduct didn’t repulse me, but I am surprised to see how nobody doesn’t seem to mind when it’s the other way around.

    • Kitten says:

      And if it were the other way around, dudes everywhere would be high-fiving him for scoring a hot young piece of ass.

    • Jayna says:

      Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, 28, is engaged to Jason Statham, 48. I never heard an uproar about them.

  12. Tiffany says:

    28 Joshua. That’s what were going with. Really?

  13. He’s a cutie. Good for them! 👏

  14. Ethelreda says:

    19 years is a huge age difference, however you slice it – and yes, I’d say exactly the same thing if the genders were reversed. Sure, she doesn’t look that much older than him, and he’s probably an ‘old soul’ (LOL!) but there’s no getting around the fact that she’s old enough to be his mother.

    So I don’t really see this marriage going the distance. It’s not only the huge age gap, there’s also the fact that celeb marriages seldom last long-term, and supposedly they’ve only been together a few months, which isn’t a good sign. Still, if they’re happy now, and get at least a few years of more happiness out of their relationship, so what? Not everything has to be forever.

  15. Rainbow says:

    When I saw the photos I thought he was the Middleton brother. Lol

  16. TreadStyle says:

    He’s so cute! Saw him on an episode of the Chew and he is very charming and funny. He’s good in Gallavant too, though I only watched season 1.

  17. maggie says:

    Both attractive but this won’t last.

  18. Jayna says:

    Kylie tours a lot. He’s an actor. I can see this falling apart eventually if their schedules stay busy and little time together.

    He looks older, like he’s in his early 30s. Maybe it’s the beard that makes him look a little older. She looks younger, like she’s in her late 30s. They don’t look all that far apart in age. I think she will age beautifully, and he probably will be one of those guys that always looks older than he is as he ages.

  19. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Good for them!

  20. Christina says:

    Oh, sweet heavens! Popped collars, Fedora, beard, prayer beads and deep V neck t-shirt!
