Kat Dennings & Andrew W.K. are engaged after only becoming IG-official a month ago

Granted, I don’t pay much attention to Kat Dennings, but the news of her engagement really surprised me. My lack of attention towards her is neither bad or good – I think she’s pretty and she seems nice, but she’s just one of these people I rarely keep up with. So I didn’t even remember that Kat and Josh Groban broke up at some point, nor did I know that Kat has apparently been seeing Andrew W.K. for a while. It doesn’t seem like anyone knows how long they’ve been dating? They only became “Instagram Official” recently, when she began posting photos of him about a month ago. Had their couple status been widely rumored or known before then? How sudden was this??

Kat and Andrew both posted the same lowkey engagement photos on their separate IGs. It looks like he got her a nice-sized diamond ring. It looks like an emerald cut with baguettes. It’s very classic and my guess is that she knew something was coming, just because she seems to have a fresh-looking manicure.

I mentioned Kat’s relationship with Groban – they dated for two years and broke up in 2016, which was a long time ago, wow. Andrew was married to Cherie Lily from 2008 to 2019. In late 2019, they apparently began “amicable divorce proceedings.” Kat apparently follows his ex-wife on Instagram, so maybe everyone gets along.

P.S. His watch is ugly but he seems to have a seriously great body.

    The long hair is a lady boner killer.

      Yes …on him it is not a good look

    • Nina says:

      Gotta disagree. The pictures above are not so flattering but he has nice hair.

    • JEM says:

      I just…his hair is NOT GOOD.

    • lucy2 says:

      Agreed. I love her ring though, beautiful!

    • AMA1977 says:

      Agree, the hair is Not Good. Ring looks fine, and I would like the color she has on her nails for my next pedicure. They are currently lilac because I let my daughter pick my color, but I prefer red. That’s all from me.

    • Charfromdarock says:

      The Not Good hair looks like some attempt of an ironic take on those romance novel covers.

      Kat’s hair looks like the brunette version of mine, ha ha. Salons are open here but I’m not going until I’m doubled vaxxed.

      I only wish the rest of me looked like her!

  2. Mandy Purr says:

    He really likes kissing her in photos. That’s all I got.

  3. Watson says:

    A gshock watch is pretty indestructible. You see them on chefs a lot. More functional than a Cartier, or Patek Phillipe if you care about scratches and getting banged up. Also more in line with an Andrew wk concert.

    This is a nice very tasteful ring.

  4. SusieQ says:

    I love her ring. It’s gorgeous!

  5. Lucy says:

    The watch is probably not great, but he did pick a lovely ring, which you don’t see often around here.

  6. EduBois says:

    He’s a Proud Boy adjacent tool. Don’t follow her and DEFINITELY do NOT support this yokel.

    • Normades says:

      At first I was like that’s nice but when do we get the Darcy/Woo spinoff, but then I saw your comment. I had to google who this guy is but still don’t understand the context here.

    • Humbugged says:

      He was friends with Gavin McInnes back in the day and was and he has appeared on conservative talk shows, but as the token liberal , but they fell out a long time ago
      The only political candidates Andrew has publicly aligned himself with are Democrats: Obama and some Democratic NYC city council guy.
      He makes it an imperative never to disclose his political leanings so the source of “libertarian ‘classical liberal'” is unknown – he’s never identified that way. He says in a Salon article that he neither identifies as “conservative or liberal.”
      While I’ve always thought Gavin McInnes to be a racist asshole, I think it’s only recently that people have considered that his “ironic racism” wasn’t that ironic. WK has at least unfollowed him on Twitter in the past couple years, so it looks like he may be quietly distancing himself.
      Anyone who listened to the Blaze radio show should know that it was deliberately apolitical. Glenn Beck made it a point to describe Andrew as a “liberal”. Andrew said he did the show in order to bridge a gap, and volunteered to donate all of his earnings from the show to families in need.
      One of his first bands, Kathode, has a 7″ called We Are Anti Nazi, Anti National War. He’s also guested on a compilation for Food Not Bombs and participated in an Artists Against Apartheid collaboration. He absolutely has radical ties, perhaps stronger than his alleged “right wing” ties (which, frankly, all seem to involve him getting paid).
      If you watch the Fox News broadcasts, he hasn’t ever said anything appalling. He’s defended Muslims and people of Middle Eastern descent, he’s defended drug legalization, he’s talked explicitly about his “party philosophy”, he’s called Glenn Beck out on his sexism

      And she is super liberal and a Jew and her best mates are Brenda Song and Bowie’s daughter in law Rodene

    She’s dated Josh Groban AND Tom Hiddleston. I’m jelly.

    • Case says:

      And somehow ended up with this guy, which does not totally add up to me, lol. But good for her if she’s happy!

  8. kimmy says:

    Fun fact…he walked right past me at a Warped Tour circa 2002 maybe.

    That’s all i’ve got.

    • Meghan says:

      The highlight of my limited time on Twitter was when I posted that I was listening to one of his songs and he responded with “Meghan is beautiful! Meghan is beautiful!”

  9. Onomo says:

    My friend worked as a teacher for Bank Street preschool in NYC and said Andrew WK came in to teach a music class for the kids, donated to the school (despite not having kids attend) and was just all around super nice and great. She seems nice, he seems nice – why not? That’s all I got.

  10. Vavavoom says:

    I like her, she’s so cute and her character in Thor is fun. I loved his songs from the album “I Get Wet”. I hope he gets to do a song for a Marvel soundtrack out of this!

    • Dlc says:

      She had SO much more charisma than Natalie Portman in thor. She should have been the lead.

    I got into a weird WK hole earlier this year?last year? and he used to be a model in NYC and planned out this whole weird Andrew WK persona as a weird like performance art piece or something… I think he’s strayed from his initial plan. But whatever. Anyways, good for them!
