New fiancé alert! Sofia Richie announced her engagement to boyfriend Elliot Grainge in April 2022 after more than one year of dating.
“Forever isn’t long enough @elliot,” she captioned a set of photos from their romantic proposal via Instagram on April 20.
The couple went Instagram official on April 7, 2021, after the Los Angeles native shared a sweet snapshot of her and her man kissing.
In the image, the new pair shared a tender kiss while sitting at a table in front of a window. She wore a brown bikini top and a cow-print bucket hat in the romantic pic. The photo was one of a set of eight which seemed to depict the model’s recent hangouts with friends. She captioned the post with a simple black heart emoji.
An hour later, Lionel Richie‘s daughter posted another photo with her man to her Instagram Stories. In the picture, Sofia was smiling while cupping her new man’s cheeks.
The pair were first spotted together while on a walk in Beverly Hills in January 2021. Since then, they have been photographed together multiple times. The Frankies Bikinis model shared a selfie with Elliot in March that year, but at the time it was still unclear if they were dating.
