Who is Charly Defrancesco, Marc Jacobs’ New Fiancé?

The happy couple got engaged last night

Marc Jacobs might be a darling of the New York high fashion scene but his surprise proposal to boyfriend Charly Defrancesco was anything but over-the-top. For one, it was at a Chipotle. Two, there were sweatpants involved. But before you assume that it was a spur-of-the-moment proposal over burrito bowls, it was certainly planned… because he hired a flash mob for a little performance set to Prince’s “Kiss.”

It may seem like a surprising setting to some but Defrancesco seemed floored, emphatically nodding yes when Jacobs got down on one knee and presented him with a ring. So there you have it—they’re officially engaged. We may not know much about the man who Jacobs calls his “ride or die fiancé”— besides the fact that he’s a model and entrepreneur who runs a candle company called Get Lit—but they seem utterly in love. Here, a look at the couple’s sweetest Instagrams over the years.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the love of my life!!! @chardefrancesco
