Emily Ratajkowski is finally wearing an engagement ring, nearly five months after tying the knot.
The model-turned-actress, who has been wearing a simple gold band since she secretly wed music producer Sebastian Bear-McClard in February (18) after a whirlwind romance, took to Instagram on Wednesday night (11Jul18) to debut her bling.
In a captionless image of her newly-dressed hand, the two-stone sparkler, which includes one teardrop cut diamond and one princess cut diamond on a thin gold band, sits underneath her thick gold wedding ring. Husband Sebastian, 31, can be seen in the background smiling broadly.
The I Feel Pretty star then shared a selfie holding the new sparkler up to her face with a simple star emoji as the caption, and later, posted a close-up of the ring to her Instagram Stories.
Emily wed the producer at a secret courthouse ceremony in New York City.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon in April, the 27-year-old revealed that Sebastian was forced to improvise when he asked her to marry him because he hadn’t bought a ring.
“He proposed to me at Minetta Tavern (a restaurant in New York) and he didn’t have a ring,” she shared during The Tonight Show. “He then took the paperclip that the bill was paid with and made me a ring, which I actually thought was really romantic.”
Emily, who designed her own collection of fine jewelry for luxury brand Spinelli Kilcollin in May, also confessed her wedding band was only supposed to be temporary.
“We walked into Chinatown and bought an ounce of gold and he was like, ‘We’ll melt down the gold and make the rings,'” she shared with Jimmy. “It was supposed to be temporary but I’m now growing attached to it and I don’t wanna get rid of it. I just feel like making it yourself, could it be more personal?”
