What's more fulfilling than getting to be with a lady once dated by Captain America? It's being engaged to her!

American artist Ben Shattuck is fortunate enough to achieve both milestones. He successfully proposed actress Jenny Slate and received a big "Yes" in return. The proposal took place in the most cliche way possible in the south of France on 9 Septemeber 2019. 

First, the pair enjoyed a picnic together and took a walk around an abandoned castle. That's when the curator made the proposal, getting down on one of his knees and asked her to be his wife. After the acceptance, he presented his fiancee with an antique prong-set sapphire ring with a halo of diamonds and a gold band.

With the lovely gesture on Ben's part, the adorable duo is now officially engaged.

Post engagement, Jenny immediately shared the joyous news among her well-wishers. The same day, she uploaded several fresh pictures boasting her ring and claimed,

He took me to France and made a picnic and made me feel happy and free and then he asked me to marry him and i screamed YES. I love you @benshattuck_art, you are the kindest and brightest and I am so grateful and here we go and keep going

The pair were first spotted dating in January 2018 after attending Sundance Film Festival together.

Although the upcoming wedding will be Ben's first experience with marriage, the same doesn't hold for his fiancee. She was married to comedian Dean Fleischer-Camp until May 2016.

Further, Ben's fiancee was also in a relationship with Avengers franchise star Chris Evans. The former couple was in an on-and-off romance till 2018. Meanwhile, Ben's dating history remains under covers.

Short Bio: Age, Family

Coming from a family full of artists, Ben was always destined to excel in the field. 

His father Bill Shattuck is a painter and designer based in Southeastern Massachusetts. Meanwhile, the artist's mother is the owner and director of her self titled art gallery where Ben is positioned as the lead curator.

Ben started his passion at a young age as he kept a journal since the age of 12. Reportedly, he even asked for crayons and coloring books as his birthday gifts.

Apart from his love for painting, Ben is a ferocious writer. His list of achievements speaks for themselves. He is the winner of multiple accolades including the 2017 PEN America Best Debut Short Story Award and the Michael Rapuano Memorial Award.
