2016 has been…a lot. Some say it’s been the worst year ever – and the number of celebrity deaths certainly backs up that unfortunate distinction. But on the flip side, it also appears to be the year of reuniting former couples. Sources say that Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are engaged once again.
It all started when fans and paparazzi spotted the uber-fashionable Scream Queens actress around town with her one-time American Horror Story co-star and boyfriend over Thanksgiving weekend. The two were out and about in Provincetown, Massachusetts for the holiday, looking adorably bundled up against the New England weather.
Most importantly, TMZ photogs spotted the pair very clearly kissing. From there, unnamed sources confirmed to Us Weekly that the two were once again engaged.
“Emma and Evan are engaged again,” a source told Us. “She’s been wearing her ring on set. Everyone on set knows.”
If the news is true, it would come almost precisely three years after their first (broken) engagement over the holidays in 2013.
This news isn’t *quite* as shocking as, say, the similar formerly-engaged/re-engaged reunion that took place between Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus earlier this year. In the case of the AHS lovebirds, it’s been well-known for several months that the two were dating once again.
They weren’t exactly trying to hide their reunion. If anything, they’ve been more open about their relationship than ever recently. They even tagged one another in adorable photos and videos on Instagram earlier this week.
Roberts and Peters have had a notoriously on-again/off-again several-year romance since they first began dating in 2012.
They met on the set of Adult World and continued to date even after an alleged domestic violence incident and even getting engaged for the first time the following year. All the while, their on-screen chemistry was palpable, starring together in American Horror Story: Coven and Freak Show.
After three years together, they ended their engagement and split in June 2015. Just a few months later, they were spotted apparently back together again. That reunion lasted until May 2016. After their second breakup, Roberts went on to briefly date someone else before rumors began to circulate about yet another reconciliation in September.
Despite the ups and downs, Roberts and Peters undoubtedly look very happy to be back together once again. Congrats to the newly re-engaged couple!
