Anthony Ramos and Jasmine Cephas Jones' love story is straight out of a movie. The two Hamilton stars met on the set of the Lin-Manuel Miranda–created Broadway show, and from day one, sparks flew. From co-stars to friends to lovers to fiancés, Ramos and Cephas Jones have proven that you can mix business and pleasure.

The two entertainers have been going strong for five years now and got engaged on Christmas Eve in Paris in 2018. ET is taking a look at the couple's relationship, from early beginnings to soon-to-be husband and wife.

2014: Where It All Began

Ramos and Cephas Jones met during Hamilton rehearsals in 2014. Ramos took on the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton, while the actress portrayed Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds. According to Miranda, Ramos left "sneaking glances" at Cephas Jones during the first table read. The two kept things friendly, even snapping pics and spending New Year's Eve together.

2015: Their Big Debut

Their careers were beginning to take off when the Off-Broadway show premiered at the Public Theater in early 2015, and the two rising stars were starting their own personal love journey. Ramos and Cephas Jones appeared to make things official around Valentine's Day, after Ramos celebrated their 2-year anniversary on Feb. 15, 2017, with an Instagram post dedicated to his "incredible" lady love.

By April, the pair were making their relationship public and sharing special moments together.

A day Ramos and Cephas Jones will never forget is Aug. 6, 2015, the day Hamilton opened on Broadway.

2016: The Big Leagues

The entertainers continued to ride Hamilton's success. In February, the pair took home their first GRAMMY Award after the Broadway show cast won Best Musical Theater Album. They also performed the opening number during the telecast.

In March, the cast got invited to the White House. "It was one of those moments, it’s like two kids from Brooklyn just in the White House, in love, chilling," Ramos recalled in a YouTube video. "That's really special…That's a moment in time."

The icing on the cake that year was when Ramos and Cephas Jones celebrated Hamilton's 11 wins, including Best Musical, at the 2016 Tony Awards.

By the end of the year, in November, Ramos departed the Broadway show. Cephas Jones bid her love farewell with a sweet note.

"Happy Trails to the love of my life @anthony_ramos_nyc. You give your heart and soul every night 8 times a week and I'm going to miss sharing the stage with you," she wrote on Instagram.

2017: Carving Their Own Paths

Not working together for the first time since they met, Ramos went on to co-star in the Netflix series She's Gotta Have It, as well as have a guest role on Will & Grace. He also had a role in Patti Cake$.

As they worked on their own careers, Ramos and Cephas Jones continued to be each other's biggest supporters.

"This is your year Jas. I thank God everyday for the Blessing it is to walk behind you on this journey. Go get em baby," Ramos wrote on Instagram on his girlfriend's birthday in July. 

Cephas Jones also celebrated her beau with a heartfelt birthday message in October of that year.

"Words can’t describe how proud and inspired I am of your work ethic and how you still have time to give to others and love unconditionally. You have a special light that shines so bright and you bring out the light in others. That is why I love you," she penned.

2018: Reunited and Thriving

With their love going strong, the two reunited on the film Monsters and Men. This was their first project together since Hamilton.

"Working with Jasmine, being able to work with my other half, that’s the dream…We’ve been together for three and a half years now and it’s been amazing," Ramos expressed in an interview with Blackfilm.com at the time. "And then now, fast forward, you’re working with your girl on this film and we’re in this apartment and I see her come out the room after she changes into her costume for the first time with this pregnant belly and you know, we ain’t got a kid. But there was this level of excitement and nervousness and joy that came over me."

When ET spoke with Ramos while he was promoting the film, he reiterated those same sentiments, adding that seeing his girlfriend with a fake belly was "wild."

"It's a dream. It was wild, I'm not gonna lie. When she had the belly and we were playing around and she put on the fake belly and I touched it I was like, [wow]," he recalled with a smile. While he said that their careers are "just popping off," he would be open to having a baby in their future.

The couple took their love to the next level when Ramos proposed to Cephas Jones on Christmas Eve 2018. The pair, however, didn't share the news until after the new year.

Ramos began his post with lyrics from Johnnyswim's "Take the World," adding the date of their engagement and thanking his beloved for "saying yes to writing stories together for the rest of our lives."

On her end, Cephas Jones shared a collage filled with photos of the happy couple, including a snap where her stunning engagement ring can be seen.

My beloved Anthony, On Christmas Eve you got down on one knee and proposed to me in front of my favorite castle in Arundel that I used to visit all the time as a child. It brought tears to my eyes because I don’t get to see my family in England that I’m so close with that much because we are an ocean away, but they got to witness this amazing event in our lives. And what a moment it was!! All because of you. I will NEVER forget this magical trip for as long as I live. Thank you to all the family and friends that have literally just showered us with so much love and support. We see you, we feel you, and we are so blessed to have you all in our corner. SOOOO heres to more Basquiat paintings in Paris, Castle adventures in England, deep convos over a cup of tea, making more movies together, writing and singing songs together, walks with Nala, dancing under many moons in Puerto Rico and MOST of all loving each other for a lifetime through the bad and the good. I love you beyond words and am so excited to continue this awesome journey with you. -Your Fiancé, Jas xo ❤️💍💫

Full circle!!! Man oh man, you deserve it all and more. What an incredible moment in time for you my love."

As they were preparing for their wedding day, Ramos said in an interview with Vogue in October, they hoped to have a major dance party. "Jasmine and I both love music, so the DJ’s gotta be on point,” he shared. “I want people sweating, suit jackets off, chancletas on.”

The two ended the year on a high after the trailer for In the Heights debuted. Ramos stars in the Lin-Manuel Miranda–created story as Usnavi.

"Every time I see this I get goosebumps. This is for the culture, the people, the dreamers. This is for us. So beyond proud of you," Cephas Jones wrote.
