Bella Thorne started engagement rumors after sharing a post about her "big announcement."

In January of 2020, Bella shared a sweet photo of Benjamin looking into the camera and captioned the pic: "Big announcement coming soon. I’m so happy, Boats in Venice." The caption was accompanied by ring emojis and hearts, which fans quickly took to mean an engagement.

This wouldn't be the first time that pregnancy rumors have surfaced about the actress. In 2018, after she shared a photo of her ex-boyfriend, Mod Sun, kissing her stomach, fans got suspicious and asked if she was expecting. It definitely didn't help matters when Mod Sun responded with "Love u mamma" in the comments, but in the end, those pregnancy rumors turned out to be false.

Fans are now wondering: Who is Bella Thorne engaged to?

Bella has not confirmed that she's engaged to her boyfriend, and after she shared her Instagram post about her mysterious announcement, she hasn't been seen with a ring on her finger. It's possible that the vague caption was meant to get fans excited for one of her newer projects, because just a few days later, she shared an article that announced her upcoming film, The Uncanny.

She said: "So excited to work with the producers from 1917 and rocket man, not to mention our lovely director @mitzipeirone who graced Tribeca with her first movie. Even more honored to say I locked down mitiz to direct a project I wrote...and she will make sure it’s a screen stealer. GROUP OF BADASS LADIES."

Aside from directing her own horror short, No Service In The Hills, and partnering with FOX to produce new content, Bella is also starring in the highly anticipated crime-thriller, Infamous.

When does 'Infamous' come out?

Bella and Jake Manley will be playing the modern-day Bonnie and Clyde in the film Infamous. According to director Joshua Caldwell, it "explores the lengths people will go to achieve relevance in the wild world of social media." 

He also explained why Bella was perfect for the lead, saying that "she’s a boundary-pushing, driving force online and off, and her performance elevates this film into a neon candy adrenaline thrill ride." 

Infamous, which also stars Amber Riley and Marisa Coughlan, is set to release on June 12, 2020 by Vertical Entertainment.
