Mark Ronson, 45, confirms he’s ENGAGED to Meryl Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer, 35, as he discusses their ‘corny’ first kiss
Mark Ronson has confirmed his engagement to Grace Gummer.
The couple sparked rumours they were betrothed last month after the daughter of Meryl Streep was seen wearing a dazzling diamond on her ring finger.
Confessing that he’d popped the question, Mark, 45, told The FADER Uncovered podcast: ‘I got engaged last weekend.’

He went on to recall his first kiss with his fiancée, 35, admitting it was a ‘corny’ experience.
He quipped: ‘There’s a plaque for that somewhere. There’s a first kiss, very corny Hallmark first kiss plaque.
‘But no, it was forever, it will be etched. It’s still my record.’
It was first reported in March that Mark and Grace were in a relationship with the duo said to have been dating since last year.

Earlier this year, it was claimed that Mark and Grace were an item after they were first linked in September during a cosy dinner date in New York.
The relationship comes after Mark split from girlfriend Genevieve Gaunt last year, while Grace became single after divorcing husband Tay Strathairn in April 2020.
A source told The Sun in March: ‘He is definitely dating Grace. Things have become romantic.
‘Lockdown restrictions have made things more difficult, especially when he has been back in the UK, but they are seeing how it goes and are getting along.’
It was also reported that Mark has already met and won over Grace’s famous mother Meryl, who has been married to sculptor Don Gummer since 1978.
The source added: ‘They seemed to like him, which is a good sign. It would be daunting for any guy to try to charm Meryl Streep.’

This isn’t the first time Mark has dated the off-spring of an A-list star, as in 2003 he proposed to music producer Quincy Jones’ daughter Rashida.
Since then the hitmaker has dated actress Genevieve Gaunt and SNL talent executive Rebecca, after splitting from wife Josephine De La Baume four years ago.
The pair filed for divorce back in 2017 after a little more than five years together and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.

Meanwhile Grace, who has starred in Mr Robot and American Horror Story: Freak Show, filed for divorce from her husband Tay Strathairn in April 2020, just 42 days after the pair tied the knot.
Mark previously told how working in the studio ‘fills a void’ inside him as he often forms close relationships with his collaborators, but said he would trade his achievements for children.
He told Radio Times in October: ‘I’ve never thought that [work] was a replacement for having a family of my own, but I definitely think it fills some of that void more than if I was going to an office.
‘I do have these warm relationships that maybe [satisfy] part of my soul that needs fulfilling. But believe me, I’d trade it in for kids.’
