False alarm! 51-year-old Chris Rock and 33-year-old Megalyn Echikunwoke are definitely not engaged. Recently, the actress was spotted wearing a ring on her ring finger, which led some to believe that they had quietly gotten engaged. In a new interview she says,
Definitely not. Oh no, am I going to get in trouble for this? Why would anyone think that? I’ve never worn an engagement ring. This right here is my alleged engagement ring, which is obviously not an engagement ring so just an FYI. It’s a pearl. It’s not even a diamond.
Despite not walking down the aisle anytime soon, she is totally satisfied with the A-lister and their relationship.
What can I say? I have a boyfriend. He’s a comedian. He’s funny. He’s really wonderful. He’s a very dreamy guy, and I’m a lucky girl.
And whether or not marriage may be in the future, she says,
I’m actually not a huge believer in marriage. If he made a really good case for it, I guess … I guess there’s this misconception about once you’re engaged how could you possibly want anything more than marriage and kids. It’s kind of like lock down a rich guy. I’m here to say that there’s more to life than that, and this common lame notion that that’s all a girl could possibly want in life is completely bulls–t. So, I mean, I have a boyfriend who I love and that’s all I need.
