You know how people always say that engagements and weddings are contagious? Well, I figured that Emma Stone’s turn was coming up after Jennifer Lawrence’s engagement to and wedding with Cooke Maroney. Emma and J-Law are good friends (they were set up for a friendship date by Woody Harrelson years ago) and Emma attended Jennifer’s recent wedding. Emma has been with her boyfriend, Dave McCary, about the same amount of time as Jennifer and Cooke have been together too. So… wouldn’t you know, Emma is engaged now!

Emma Stone is engaged! The 31-year-old actress’ longtime boyfriend Dave McCary revealed the happy news on Instagram on Wednesday, sharing a photo of the couple smiling excitedly as Stone showed off her new ring. McCary, 34, simply captioned the post, “💕.”

A source previously confirmed to PEOPLE that Stone and McCary, a segment director and writer for Saturday Night Live, were dating in October 2017, saying that the pair had been together for at least three months. The pair met when the Oscar-winning actress hosted SNL at the end of 2016 and starred in the sketch “Wells for Boys,” which McCary directed. While Stone and McCary are relatively private about their romance, the duo have been spotted together multiple times and enjoyed a date night in New York City in April, heading out for dinner in the city after SNL rehearsals. Stone hosted the April 13 episode of the variety show.

Congrats to them! I’m happy for her, I guess. I’d also like to point out that both Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone are mostly based in New York when they’re not working. They were in NYC as single girls, living a Nouveau Sex and the City life, and they both nurtured their relationships in the city. In Emma’s case, I feel like post-La La Land, she made a conscious choice to be a lot more private, and Dave was part of that. Also, I have to say this: I hope Andrew Garfield has a good cry today! He really loved Emma but their careers tore them apart, plus I think she just got tired of his bulls–t.

    Love the ring, and this was just a nice story in general.

    Yesterday afternoon I was told our office will be closing in the new year. 200 employees are losing their jobs in the next couple of months. This is a small town without much industry wise. It’s terrifying.

    Happy stories like this are a nice little break though.

    • girl_ninja says:

      I’m so sorry that you’re town is going through this. Sending out good energy and prayers.

    • Lightpurple says:

      So sorry.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      So very sorry, Erinn! Wishing you all the best!! Hugs!

    • C-Shell says:

      Aww, Erinn! I hate hearing about company closures and layoffs announced during the holidays.

      Agree, the ring is pretty (is it a pearl?) and they look so happy. Emma definitely has a type, doesn’t she?

    • Vanessa says:

      Sending support and love to you and your community!

    • Caitrin says:

      Oh Erinn, I’m so, so sorry.

    • Erinn says:

      Thanks guys, it really means a lot. I was super pumped up and positive last night…. but after sleeping for a total of about 45 minutes before heading to work this morning that positive attitude is starting to run dry lol. Right now I’m just focusing on getting as much stuff together as possible with as many backup plans as possible. So fingers crossed.

      • detritus says:

        If they are closing everyone can get EI hopefully? I feel like I remember you being East Coast, so this is brutal. They need more industry. Not less.

        this is just a hiccup on the way to something better, and I hope that better comes soon.

      • Erinn says:

        Hopefully. The town and the province are looking to find a company to replace the one I’m with currently, and they’re hoping that they’ll absorb the staff. But I do wordpress website design/builds … so assuming they’ll be hauling in a call center type of employer, it’s not really much help to me. But the potential of even a short term stint until I can find something else is hopeful.

    • Hotsauceinmybag says:

      Hi Erin, I am so so sorry. Sending you all the positive vibes and a big virtual hug.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Oh, no. I’m sorry to hear this. I hope some solid companies come to town to hire people soon.

    • Renee says:

      Erinn, I’m so sorry. Truly. I hope you find the right fit for you soon. I know workplace disruption is terrible but especially this time of the year. *Hugs* to you

    • Snazzy says:

      I am so sorry Erinn. Sending hugs

    I think Emma is lovely and I’m happy that she’s found her partner. I hope they share a lifetime of happiness. I think it’s interesting that many of these actresses are dating me who are in front of the camera like they are. I do feel for Andrew Garfield, he seemed really wrecked when their relationship needed. I never knew he was a f*ck up tho.

    • bub244 says:

      Is Andrew a f*** up? I’m genuinely interested. I just thought he was a bit (/a lot) pretentious.

    • bucketbot says:

      same here @bub244, I thought he was a decent guy. The only thing I vaguely remember about them as a couple is that one time Andrew said something negative about women (or something else maybe) at a public event (maybe a Spiderman press event) and Emma ,then and there, called him out on it. But that’s it….To me they were a low key couple (I’ve never watched their Spiderman)

  3. Ariel says:

    I remember Ileana Douglas when talking about Grace of My Heart, talked about the man you may love when you are young that you end up apologizing for often. Oh he’s a genius, – as if that excuses his asinine, selfish behavior. (I think the character was played by Matt Dillon in that movie).
    That’s what I think of when I think of her relationship with Garfield.
    He was probably “brilliant” which was supposed to excuse him for asinine, dickish behavior.

  4. Casey says:

    Her man looks like he home brews craft beer and brings his guitar to house parties.

  5. Louisa says:

    “plus I think she just got tired of his bulls–t”

    Wait, what? I’ve always thought Andrew G got his shit together and that their relationship was alright but life led them to different directions.

    Anyway, congrats Emma and Dave!

    I think I am in the very unpopular minority of Emma Stone non-fans. I do not like her acting. I hated LaLa Land. But I am happy for her.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Bbbut you liked Easy A, right? And Zombieland??

      • Shirleygailgal says:

        hated lalaland also….haven’t seen zombieland, but LOVED easy A and thought she was brilliant in it!

      • Bettyrose says:

        I gave Lalaland a miss but will always adore her for Easy A. I’m also a huge Woody Harrelson fan and thought they were a great team in Zombieland.

    • sammiches says:

      I’m not an fan either, BUT I freaking loved her in the Favourite.

  7. Ela says:

    I love the low key announcement. It looks like they took the pic in a random office. But they also look genuinely happy.

    • Daffodil says:

      I thought it looked like they were in a bowling alley! That thing over Emma’s left shoulder is probably a window, but it looked like a bowling alley scoreboard to me.

  8. Mumbles says:

    Maybe it’s just me but she and Garfield never seemed “real” together. Seemed like a publicist setup. I always got a douchebag vibe from him from his talk show appearances.

    Her friendship with JLaw seems puzzling. I went down a YouTube rabbit hole last night and came across Lawrence basically torturing a foreign journalist at a Golden Globes post-award conference. I had forgotten that and it just reminded me what a bratty jerk she could be. Stone also seems smarter and more cultured than DoritoFart Cheetodust-Fingers.

  9. Onemoretime says:

    I like Emma, think she is a lovely person. Congratulations to her.

  10. Lena says:

    Congrats to them. I think as an actress you do better not to date another actor (and the other Way Around of course)!! Someone completely out of show business or at
    Least behind the scenes like a writer/director like this guy.

  11. Originaltessa says:

    She looks so cute in that pic. Congrats!

  12. MellyMel says:

    Aww congrats to them! She’s my favorite Emma!

  13. smcollins says:

    Congrats to them! I’ve loved her since her small, yet scene-stealing, role in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. She’s adorable and I wish her (them) all the best.

  14. A says:

    They look kinda similar to each other in that engagement pic.

  15. Caitlin says:

    Andrew isn’t a dick at all, he is known in theatre circles to one of the kindest and nicest relatively “big” actors there is. There relationship ran it’s course but what they had was real and was an important relationship for both of them. Congrats Emma!

  16. Miriam says:

    I like Emma and I’m glad she finally found her match(who seems like a down to earth guy).

    “plus I think she just got tired of his bulls–t”- I didn’t follow their gossip so i assumed they amicably separated (remembering he stood up and clapped during her oscar win)!! He always seemed snobby and to be honest confused why she was with him!!

  17. Well-Wisher says:

    Congratulations to the lovely Emma Stone.

  18. Diamond Rottweiler says:

    That style ring suits her beautifully. Though I’d be nervous to have a pearl on a ring worn daily.

    • runcmc says:

      I was thinking the same thing! I am definitely not someone who thinks you have to have a diamond/clear stone, but pearls are so fragile and easy to break! If she’s going to wear it daily, it’s going to get damaged fairly quickly 🙁 I feel the same about opals- very soft stone!

      That said, it’s not like she has to wear it daily/wear it while working/ please anybody else. It’s a lovely ring and I adore pearls!

    • Kebbie says:

      Is it a pearl? I thought it was a blurry diamond. I guess pearl would make more sense than posting such a blurry photo of the ring lol
