Meg Ryan inadvertently inspired countless "Jack & Diane" and "When Harry Met Sally." puns this week by announcing her engagement to John Mellencamp.

Meg Ryan is ready to say "I do".

Talk of an engagement began after Ryan was spotted wearing a new sparkler on her ring finger on Wednesday in NYC (inset above). The actress took to her Instagram on Thursday, November 8, to share the news in a cheeky post. He and Ryan started dating in 2010 and broke up five years later. "She hates me to death".

Why the animosity? The 65-year-old musician elaborated, "I think it's because I'm a child".

In March of 2018, the Page Six gossip column reported that Mellencamp and Ryan were scoping out sites for a wedding on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, where the IN rocker owns a mansion. She posted a doodle of herself with Mellencamp and captioned the post "ENGAGED!" "I'm moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that's me".
