Celebrity hairstylist, Chris Appleton, and White Lotus star, Lukas Gage are engaged just a few weeks after their red carpet debut.

In March, the pair attended the Vanity Fair and TikTok event celebrating young Hollywood where they were seen on the carpet together for the first time. Gage stunned in an all-white ensemble next to Appleton who looped just as dapper, matching his beau in a black suit with a silk cream button-up shirt underneath.

The two have managed to stay quiet about their relationship as they were getting to know each other but have recently opened up more about their love for one another. The most recent and exciting news is them taking this next step, engagement!

When It’s Meant To Be It Becomes


We’re often told that love happens at the time right time and often when we least expect it.

One source close to Appleton told PEOPLE, “Chris has been looking for something real for a long time. This has moved fast but he is dazzled by Lukas.”

Another one shared, “Friends in their circles are definitely shocked at how quick it happened, but they’re happy for them. They seem like the real deal.”

Earlier in the month, Gage himself told PEOPLE at the launch party for Tequila Don Julio, “You’re going to find the perfect person when you’re least expecting it because I was very single for a long time and never thought I would have that happen and it does. It’s going to happen.” And, just days before that, he opened up on the Today show saying,  “I feel very happy, very lucky, and very much in love.”

Appleton, who has clients including Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, gushed over his partner to Drew Barrymore as a guest on her show.

Barrymore asked if he has anyone in his life that he wanted to share and he didn’t hold back from talking about Gage. ”

“Actually, yeah. Listen, I’m very happy,” he said. “Very much in love, and I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special. Love is a really special thing, and I think meeting someone you connect with is really, really special so.”

So, How’d We Get Here?

Dating rumors of the two began back in February when they traveled together to Mexico and shared a carousel of photos on Instagram. Although no verbal confirmation came from the two, sources close to them were spilling the beans to multiple publications about Appleton and Gage dating.

March 8th, their red carpet debut, was the [unofficial] couple’s first outing together however, there was still no confirmation that they were in fact the real deal. In fact, just two days later when Gage was asked about his potential relationship with Appleton he responded, “I’m a pretty open book about most things in my life, but I have a problem with the culture of everyone needing to know everybody’s business and nothing can be sacred. It’s a weird line that I’m still trying to figure out.”

But, 5 days later, Appleton gave the public what they were asking for and confirmed his relationship with Gage during his time on the Drew Barrymore Show.

March 23, Appleton also made things Instagram official by posting a photo with Gage captioned, “Apple of my eye.” Gage responded to the post with several comments including, “Forget the apple, you [are] the whole orchard,” “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” and “Bake me into a pie.”

And, the most recent news comes yesterday, April 5th, that Appleton and Gage are reportedly engaged.

Congrats to the happy couple!
