Ryan announced the pair's engagement on Thursday via Instagram.

Rather than posting a photo of her ring or a photo of her with Mellencamp, Ryan opted to post a Tim Burton-esque doodle of the two, with Mellencamp's figure holding a guitar in one hand.

Ryan, 56, was previously married to actor Dennis Quaid from 1991 through 2001.

Meg Ryan posted a sketch of the couple with a caption that simply said "ENGAGED!"

In an unforeseen twist, Ryan allegedly had an affair with her co-star Russell Crowe and this led to the demise of her marriage. Thursday's engagement confirmation comes days after a tabloid report claimed the couple just Wednesday in an intimate ceremony in Indiana. "She just doesn't want anything to do with me, and I don't blame her". In March of last year, Mellencamp went on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show and implied that there was no way that he would ever have a shot at getting back with the 55-year-old actress.

After saying that the actress "hates him to death", he added: "Oh, women hate me". When asked why, he told Stern: "I think it's because I'm a child".

'I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. They became a couple as his marriage to Elaine Irwin was ending, although it hasn't been without problems. Mellencamp has five children from three past marriages.
