A love story for the ages.
Yesterday, it was reported that singer Phoebe Bridgers and Irish actor Paul Mescal are engaged.
The pair have been dating for some time, having interacted at first on Twitter in May 2020. After finishing Normal People, Phoebe told the world that she was left feeling "sad and horny".
Paul, who played Connell Waldron on the show, replied saying that he was "officially dead", and they've been going from strength to strength since then.
After speculation that they were together mounted, Paul and Phoebe made their red carpet debut last year, and just a few months ago it was reported that they had bought a house in west Cork.
Following reports that the pair are getting hitched, many fans flocked to Twitter to share their reaction to the news, and it made for an entertaining read.
Here are 10 of the best tweets about the impending Mescal/Bridgers nuptials.
