Matty Healy proposed to his girlfriend Gabbriette Bechtel with a decidedly unique diamond engagement ring.

The 35-year-old singer’s mother, actress Denise Welch, confirmed that the pair got engaged on a Wednesday, June 12, episode of her show Loose Women.

Welch, 66, revealed that Healy proposed to Bechtel, 26, with a black diamond ring, which he had “made for her.”

Welch said that although the pair have been engaged for “a few weeks” now, they became “Instagram official” after Bechtel posted photos of the engagement ring to her Instagram stories on Wednesday, June 12. Although Healy has yet to comment on their engagement, he did seemingly confirm the news by reposting Bechtel’s photos of the engagement ring to his own Instagram story.

Following the news, fans did some digging and found that a similar-looking ring was sold for $10,800 on the e-commerce website The ring in question featured an 18 karat gold black diamond with a sparkly pavé diamond band. It is not immediately clear if this is the exact sparkler Healy had reworked for Bechtel.

Healy and Bechtel first sparked romance rumors in September 2023 when they were photographed kissing and holding hands in New York City. Shortly afterwards, the pair were seen at a New York Fashion Week event in Brooklyn and have been seemingly inseparable ever since.

Swift, 34, has since immortalized her entanglement with the 1975 singer in her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department.

“He loves the attention it’s brought to him, [but] he also thinks it’s hilarious because at no time [were they] ever serious,” a source close to Healy told Us last week. They added that although Healy feels “completely blindsided” by her “lyrical content,” he is “taking it in stride.”
