Richie announced her engagement to Grainge, 29, almost a year ago in April 2022. Shortly after the news broke, a source told ET that Richie's father, Lionel, and sister, Nicole, had given their full approval of the nuptials. 

"Lionel, Nicole and the rest of Sofia's family are really happy for her and think Elliot is a great guy who fits in perfectly with them," the source said. "Sofia and Elliot are really cute and low-key together. They keep their circle small." 

Grainge proposed to Richie in a romantic beachside setup. "Forever isn’t long enough @elliot," she wrote on Instagram at the time.
