Chrissy Metz DENIES she is engaged to beau Bradley Collins after wearing ring on wedding finger

She set fans speculating after she was seen out with a ring on her wedding finger.

But now Chrissy Metz has cleared up the confusion and revealed the sparkler was only a honeycomb-shaped ring that her boyfriend Bradley Collins bought her for Christmas.

‘I’m obsessed with bees,’ the 40-year-old This Is Us actress said Tuesday on SiriusXM’s The Covino & Rich Show though she did not explain why she wore the ring on her wedding finger.

According to Chrissy, the ring was an innocent present and not a sign of impending marriage. ‘So let’s be very clear,’ Chrissy began as she took the ring and held it up to her webcam. 

‘So Bradley bought it for me — I’m so glad that you’re clearing this up… So we went crystal shopping for a friend and I also love crystals as well, but I was like, wait, this is a ring that he bought me for Christmas,’ she explained.

Anyone close enough to get a good look at the ring likely would not have mistaken it for an engagement ring due to its distinct pattern and lack of any stones. 

‘It’s a honeycomb. I’m obsessed with bees. I love bees. I’m like, who thought that this was an engagement ring, first of all?! And like, what?!’ she said with a laugh.

The singer complained that there were more important news stories to focus on than her possible engagement.

‘It’s definitely not a slow day in the news. Let’s talk about some real stuff. Okay? About like what’s going on in our country as opposed to a ring that I might be wearing. I’m like, “y’all, goodness!”

‘Anyway, thanks for clearing it up. It’s a honeycomb ring and I love it very much, but it’s not an engagement ring,’ she said definitively.

On Monday, Chrissy revealed on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show Radio Andy that she met her boyfriend Bradley on the dating app Bumble.

She said that she intentionally set up a sparse profile ‘because I thought it sort of weeds out the people who want to maybe talk to me for any other reason than a genuine reason.’

Perfect match: 'Bradley and I have all the same friends — he knows all the same songwriters, he's [been] in music publishing for 16 years,' she revealed

She recounted seeing one man who was ‘an aspiring writer’ who had a ‘This Is Us coffee cup,’ which she thought would be ‘too weird.’

But she and Bradley hit things off almost immediately, and it didn’t hurt that they unknowingly shared the same social circle.

‘You like to think the best of every situation, but interestingly enough, Bradley and I have all the same friends — he knows all the same songwriters, he’s [been] in music publishing for 16 years,’ she said. ‘And so we’ve been in the same rooms, but we had never met… I feel like it was meant to be, for sure.’ 

Chrissy confirmed their relationship in October on Instagram.

‘Happy #nationalboyfriendday to my dreamboat!’ she wrote. ‘Bradley, from the first moment I laid eyes on you I wanted and needed to know you. Now I feel so lucky to love you. You can #Collinsmesmitten for sure! Thank you for being the absolute wonder that you are, I love you.’
