Carey Mulligan Engaged
She had her fair share of heartbreak following her split from boyfriend Shia LaBeouf last year, when reports claimed he had affairs with both his Transformers co-stars Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. But, after just five months of dating Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford, Carey Mulligan is ready to walk down the aisle. The Oscar-nominated actress was spotted last week with an engagement ring while enjoying a romantic weekend away at the plush Babington House in Somerset, England, with her new folk singing beau.
According to one witness, “Carey looked like the cat that had got the cream. She was wearing a beautiful ring and didn’t seem to mind who saw it. They were stuck to each other like glue. She was doing most of the talking and he was hanging on her every word.”
Carey first met her fiancé at his band’s show in Nashville, Tennessee where he had invited her to watch them play in the basement of a friend’s home. “While he was singing Marcus looked down at Carey and she blushed. It was clear they had chemistry,” said an insider. “Afterwards they went to the City House restaurant and dined with friends but they sat together and acted like a couple.”
Between Shia and Marcus, Carey was briefly linked to Britpack actor Tom Sturridge and actor Eddie Redmayne, while Marcus date singer Laura Marling.
