Elle king is engaged – and we knew it would happen all along

If you’ve ever creeped on peeked at Grammy-nominated “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer Elle King’s Instagram page, you’ve no doubt seen a flood of images of this man, her boyfriend, affectionately referred to as “Fergie.”

Ahoy mate! Sailin away in my favorite new coat!! Thanks @pamandgela and @ihprteam !

Over the weekend, Elle shared the exciting news that Fergie had proposed to her “on a sailboat under the Golden Gate Bridge,” and that she said yes. So, Elle and Fergie are officially engaged!

Fergie asked me to marry him on a sailboat under the Golden Gate Bridge. I said yes.

But, see, here’s the thing: We knew this was coming. Or, at least, we knew that these two were totally in love and that they were bound to spend their lives entwined in the throes of romance. Here’s the proof.

Back in September, Elle’s song “Ex’s & Oh’s” hit the top of the Alternative Songs chart, making her only the second female artist to go to No. 1 on that chart in 20 years (Lorde was the first). We spoke to Elle about this, and one thing kept coming up throughout the interview — Fergie.
