Meg, 56, and John, 67, first began their relationship in 2011, before breaking up in 2014. The same year, the pair rekindled their love, and broke up again in 2015. The duo have been back together since 2017 – sparking engagement rumors around the same time. Prior to confirming their relationship that year, the Jack and Diane singer opened up about Meg’s feelings towards him during an interview with Howard Stern


After saying that the actress “hates him to death,” he added: “Oh, women hate me. I loved Meg Ryan. She hates me to death. I think it’s because I’m a child. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that’s me.” Meg sang her love’s praises during an interview with Porter magazine in 2015.


“He’s world class. There’s not one speck of music that’s not his,” she said. “He’s got some kind of magic touch.” This trip down the aisle will be Meg’s second. The You’ve Got Mail actress was married to Dennis Quaid from 1991-2001 whom shares 26-year-old son Jack.
