This news comes as a complete surprise, since an engagement between John and Shay did not announce an engagement beforehand. The two have enjoyed a whirlwind engagement since first sparking dating speculation with their date in Vancouver in March of 2019. John was filming a movie, Playing with Fire, in the area at the time, but the couple couldn’t leave their romance behind in Canada!

John and Shay traveled to New York City in October of 2019, where they made their red carpet debut at the New York City premiere for Playing With Fire. John even raved about his plus-one, telling an Entertainment Tonight reporter at the event, “What’s truly special about this one is that, no matter what projects I’m involved in the future, this one will always have a special meaning because I got to film a special project and meet someone special.”
