Stiles also put her growing belling on display in an August 1 Instagram post.
“Alright, I couldn’t resist,” the actress captioned the pic of herself in a fitted black dress by Tiffany Rose.
Stiles and Cook, who got engaged on Christmas Eve 2015, met on the set of 2015’s Go With Me, where Cook worked as a camera assistant.
“Best Christmas Ever!” Stiles captioned an Instagram snap at the time, showing off her stunning diamond engagement ring.
The Bourne Supremacy star recalled the the proposal during an appearance on Live With Kelly in July 2016.
“We had had a conversation waiting for an elevator one day, where he was randomly like, out of nowhere, ‘With jewelry, you don’t really wear silver or platinum. You’re more into gold,’” she told Kelly Ripa at the time. “And then I went, ‘What is up with this conversation?’”
In an interview with the Today Show in June, the Save the Last Dance star gushed over her love, explaining why Cook was the right guy for her.
“He’s just a really good man,” Stiles told Hoda Kotb.”It’s a gut feeling, I guess. But the more we spend time together, the more that’s confirmed. He’s just really caring and attentive and a solid dude.”
