Top Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel and fashion designer Sarah Staudinger have reportedly gotten engaged months after reconciling their relationship.
Insiders confirmed the news to Page Six on Sunday. It comes five weeks after Emanuel took public his entertainment and events company Endeavor Group Holdings Inc – owner of the wildly-popular UFC mixed martial arts organization.
A source told Page Six that Emanuel, 60, popped the question to Staudinger, 32, after the IPO that saw Endeavor debut on the New York Stock Exchange with a valuation of $10.8billion.
The source said the couple got back together a few months ago after they split last fall after about two years of dating.
The wedding is sure to have an impressive guest list given the pair’s impressive network of A-listers.
Staudinger’s fashion brand Staud boasts many high-profile fans including Meghan Markle, Kendall Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez and Lizzo.
Emanuel’s half of the list could feature some of the stars he represents – including Charlize Theron, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Martin Scorsese, Larry David, Michael Bay and Tyler Perry.

Emanuel could also invite some heavy-hitters he knows through Endeavor which owns UFC, Hollywood agency WME and the Miss Universe pageant.
Tesla founder Elon Musk is on the board of the company and Patriots owner Robert Kraft is said to be an investor.
At the family table will likely be both of Emanuel’s brothers – former Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and renowned bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel.
Last November reports emerged that Emanuel and Staudinger had ended the relationship they began in 2018 – shortly after he filed for divorce from Sarah Addington, his wife of over 20 years and the mother of his three sons.
At the time sources told Page Six that Staudinger had been living with Emanuel but moved out after the split.
Variety reported that Emanuel had recently purchased a $27.5million mansion in Beverly Hills that could serve as their first home as a married couple.

Staudinger crashed into the fashion scene in 2015 when she and George Augusto co-founded their brand Staud – which quickly drew the attention of stars including Emily Ratajkowski, Alexa Chung, Dakota Johnson, Margo Robbie and Nicole Richie.
Staudinger spoke to DailyMail.com about the vision behind her brand last year.
‘We launched STAUD because we felt that there was a need in the marketplace for elegant chic clothes at an accessible price point,’ she said.
‘We felt like everything out there was overly trend driven or overpriced. Our goal is to create timeless designs with an elevated aesthetic at a reasonable price.’

Asked why she believed her brand was so popular with celebrities, Staudinger said: ‘I think it’s for the same reason the rest of our customers seem to connect to us.
‘Our pieces allow celebs to make a statement that speaks to their style rather than just the garment or designer they are wearing.
‘Most of the girls that wear our clothes have amazing taste and want to express that and we provide them the canvas.’
It’s unclear how Staudinger and Emanuel met, but both have links to many Hollywood stars who could have made an introduction.
Reps for the pair did not return requests for comment about their engagement.
