Zoe Sugg got engaged to Alfie Deyes in September 2023.

On Sept. 13, 2023, Zoe posted a black-and-white video to Instagram to announce her engagement to Alfie. In the video, Zoe can be seen kissing Alfie before running happily to the camera to show off her ring.

Folks in the comments section were thrilled. "I think I speak for the people when I say 'it’s about dang time,'" wrote one person, while a longtime fan commented: "I can't stop rewatching this clip. My 13-year-old self is crying!!!"

Zoe has talked about marriage before in her videos, stating in 2018 that she thought Alfie would have the perfect proposal up his sleeve. She said at the time, "I 100 percent know that you will plan [the proposal] ... and you'll do it really nicely."

Fans have also speculated about a potential engagement for the YouTubers in the past, including when Zoe posted a photo in 2018 in which she looked like she was showing off an engagement ring. The photo showed them sitting side by side, with Zoe holding her hand as though showing off a ring. (Although the ring may have actually been on her right hand.)

One Instagram user wrote at the time, "Zoom in on her hand. Tell me that looks like an engagement ring!!" Another wrote, "Are u married, as you have a ring on your left hand?"

Zoe and Alfie welcomed their first child together in August 2021.

In March 2021, Zoe announced that she and Alfie were expecting their first child. Fans immediately congratulated the pair, and many also made jokes about now feeling old (a lot of us watched Zoe back when we were teenagers).

"Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes are having a baby and I feel like my teenage years are over," one Twitter user said.

"Our family is growing! Little girl joining us in December 🤍," Zoe captioned a black-and-white video of her little family together holding up sonogram photos.

"I have a feeling that there’s a proposal coming," someone commented at the time — only to be proven right around two months later when Zoe and Alfie announced their engagement news.

Congrats to this beautiful family!
