Congratulations to actress Anne Hathaway who’s announced she’s engaged to boyfriend of three years, Adam Shulman, after he popped the question with a Kwiat Heritage engagement ring.

The couple started dating in 2008 after Anne’s split from – or should we say traded in – her then boyfriend Raffaello Follieri after he pled guilty to 14 accounts of money laundering, conspiracy and wire fraud.

Speaking about her relationship to Adam, Anne jokingly said Adam “ruined” her plan of staying single.

She explained: “We hit if off immediately but it took us a pretty long time to get together. He thought that I had a boyfriend and I thought that he had a girlfriend, so I thought that I’d better keep my distance because I didn’t want to be that girl. Mellow doesn’t always make for a good story, but it makes for a good life.”

“I am very much in love with him, [only] Adam totally ruined my plan. I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time, and then I fell in love like a fool!”

Anne has previously been against the idea of getting married, but reveals she changed her mind about the institution after seeing her best friend walk down the aisle: “I am open to marriage, actually. I just went through a phase where I wanted to look at it from every angle to make sure that I wasn’t just falling in step with some kind of prescribed fantasy. I was at my best friend’s wedding recently, and I watched this person who I love like a sister, and who has changed my life and continues to change my life for the better, who I feel as close to as I do my family, commit herself to a man who she loves, and I watched how happy it made her. I mean, she looked like she was riding a bubble the whole night. I thought, ‘Weddings are important because they celebrate life and possibility.’ ”

Aww. Anne & Adam, congratulations to you both from the Bridalwave team!

And here’s just one of the Kwiat Heritage engagement rings
