ET has reached out to Mellencamp's reps.

The couple has broken up once before. They began dating in 2010 but split five years later. In March 2017, Mellencamp went on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show and implied that there was no way that he would ever have a shot at getting back with Ryan. "Oh, women hate me. I loved Meg Ryan," he said at the time. "She hates me to death."

"I think it's because I’m a child," he continued. "I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that’s me."

But in July 2017, a source told ET that the two were back together. Ryan confirmed she was engaged in November 2018, after she was snapped wearing a sparkly ring on her left ring finger while out and about on Halloween. The actress announced their engagement on her Instagram with a funny drawing of the pair and a simple caption that read, "Engaged!"

Ryan recently talked to InStyle magazine about her engagement, and she said she was in no rush to get married to Mellencamp.

"Yes, I’m going to get married at some point," she said. "But for now this engagement thing is a state of grace."

In February, the actress talked about the perks of getting engaged in her 50s.

"What’s great about now is that John and I are so free to have fun," she said in an interview with The New York Times Magazine. "Maybe that freedom is about being a million years old. But I sometimes think relationships are for aliens. Who does it? Who can do it? I don’t know how any of us ever do."
