Sofia Richie Is Engaged to Elliot Grainge: View Updates!

When Lionel Richie granted Elliot Grainge permission to marry his daughter Sofia Richie, he was on the verge of passing out.

“Poor guy, he was a jittery wreck.” Following the engagement news, Lionel 72 told Access, “I thought he was going to pass out, but he survived.”

“I was going to rib him a little bit,” he said, “but I didn’t want to play because he was going to faint.”

“It was fantastic… They’re really in love, so all I can say is, as a father, that’s what you truly want.”

The “American Idol” judge stated that he is more than happy for Sofia, 23, to marry Grainge, 28, because he has known her now-fiancé since he was a pre-teen.

“I have to be honest with you, it was a bit of a steep slope,” Lionel laughed before admitting, “I love Elliot.” How about that? I’ve known him since he was 12 years old. So it’s one of those situations where I don’t have to go back and look at the kid because I already know who he is.”

“They’re very pleased,” he continued, “and as a daddy and a father…my that’s little girl, so she’s in excellent hands.”

Sofia announced her engagement last week on Instagram, with a photo of Grainge kneeling in front of her, surrounded by white flowers and candles.

After only a year of dating, Sofia Richie has proposed to her boyfriend Elliot Grainge.

“Forever isn’t long enough @elliot,” the bride-to-be captioned photos that were taken at the Four Seasons Hualalai.

Page Six reported in April 2021 that Sofia was dating the music executive, who is the son of Universal Music Group chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge.

“They have been friends for years and Elliot is also close with Sofia’s brother, Miles,” a source told Entertainment Tonight of Richie’s brother. “It’s very nice for Sofia to date someone who her family approves of and likes.”

Sofia Richie is now engaged to be married! Elliot Grainge, the model’s one-year boyfriend, and she recently took their relationship to the next level.

The couple posed against a blue sunset with palm trees in the backdrop, but the location of the lavish proposal was not revealed in the picture. Richie then gave fans a close-up look at her engagement ring in the next slide.

While sharing an intimate kiss with her now-fiance, Richie placed her hand affectionately on her man’s face, and we got to see the blinding emerald-cut diamond ring sitting pretty on her finger. The soon-to-be bride captioned the heartwarming post, “Forever isn’t long enough @elliot.

“I can’t wait to find ways to make this about me,” said Nicole Richie, the young fashion designer’s big sister, in one of the celebratory texts she received from her inner circle.

“She said yes,” Grainge captioned a photo of himself and his woman kissing near an outdoor fire stand on Instagram, to which Richie responded in the comments, “I love you.”

Scott Disick was Sofia’s previous boyfriend.

Although Richie and Grainge’s engagement appears to be moving at a breakneck pace, it’s not surprising given Scott Disick’s ex-girlfriends’ proclivity for doing so.

The 23-year-old has been in a number of high-profile romances, but her affair with Disick has gotten a lot of attention. Disick and Richie started dating in 2017, despite their controversial 17-year age difference.

Fans were critical of the relationship, and it was said that the “Stuck On You” singer didn’t approve of his daughter’s relationship with the “KUWTK” alum. To make matters worse, Richie was only 19 when they first started dating.

The former lovebirds had a three-year on-again, off-again relationship that ended in May 2020. She reconnected with her previous fling Jaden Smith shortly after their breakup.

After Sofia Richie’s engagement, Scott Disick trolls himself: ‘Call me luck,’ says the character.

On Wednesday, hours after ex-girlfriend Sofia Richie announced her engagement to Elliot Grainge, the reality star poked fun at himself on Instagram.

“Aboard the 305, just call me good luck chuck,” Disick, 38, captioned a photo of himself in a speedboat traveling around Miami.

The caption makes fun of the 2007 comedy “Good Luck Chuck,” in which a cursed dentist named Charlie (Dane Cook) discovers that all of his ex-girlfriends find true love after sleeping with him.

Many of Disick’s fans understood the reference and flooded his comments section with various laughing emojis.

“Scott you are too funny at least you’re able to make a joke out of all of this😂😂,” one fan wrote, with another adding, “I’m very happy for Sofia but this is honestly So funny.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Richie, 23, announced via her own Instagram that Grainge, 28, had popped the question to her at the Four Seasons Hualalai after one year of dating.

The model famously dated Disick for almost three years.

The couple split up in May 2020, with insiders telling Page Six that “Sofia got fed up” after “Scott went back to his old ways.”

According to sources, the two were quarantined apart during the coronavirus outbreak, which harmed their relationship.
