In August 2021, the “Havana” singer shared a TikTok video of herself doing the signature dance from her music video for her single “Don’t Go Yet” — and eagle-eyed fans noticed that Camila was rocking a major diamond sparkler on that finger.
However, during an August 26 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Camila set the record straight. “No, guys! He has not, and I am not engaged,” she assured, adding that she doesn’t actually “know what hand the engagement ring goes on.”
Even so, nearly eight months prior, the Daily Mail obtained photos of the Canadian crooner and the Cuba native walking with the former Fifth Harmony member’s dad in Miamiin January 2021. Days later, rumors started swirling about an engagement after screenshots of an Instagram Stories post went viral on Twitter and claimed the pair had taken the next step in their romance. According to social media users, a tipster revealed Shawn supposedly proposed to the former girlbander and that they were planning to “announce in the coming days.”
Neither Shawn nor Camila commented on the engagement rumors at the time. That said, the “In My Blood” singer has talked about proposing to his other half.
“Yeah, absolutely, I think for me it’s always been if I’m not willing to talk about that stuff then I kind of check out a little bit, and I don’t know, I really think when you know, you know,” Shawn told Entertainment Tonight in December 2020 when asked if he and Camila discuss getting engaged. “She’s been one of my best friends since I was, like, 15 years old. I don’t know, at the same time, I know we are really young so I don’t want to jump, like, insanely fast, but I think when you find your person, you feel and you know that you have found your person.”
The pair first sparked romance rumors in 2015 after releasing their collaboration “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” At the time, they were nothing more than friends, but they went public with their relationship in July 2019 and have been going strong ever since.
“She was always there to look out for me as a human being,” Shawn gushed about Camila during his November 2020 Netflix documentary In Wonder. “She’s got my back and I think that’s what your partner’s for.”
