‘I can’t wait to marry you. Thank you to everyone for the love and comments the past week. I’m sorry if we haven’t got back yet, I promise we will xx,’ she continued.   

The lovebirds shared a kiss as they held up their ring fingers in a pseudo rude gesture, showing off their engagement rings. 

Jessica sported a thin gold band with a massive diamond on top while Alex had a much thicker gold band which encompassed her diamond of the same size.

The newly engaged couple first announced the big news in an Instagram video last Friday. 

Jessica ‘closed down’ the Catacombs of Paris and proposed to Alex as they toured the tunnels lined with human skulls.

She read out a speech to her Los Angeles-based love, who shed a few tears, before getting down on one knee.

In a comically beautiful moment, Alex also got down on one knee to propose to Jessica, shocking the pop idol – it seemed neither knew the other had planned to pop the question. 

Jessica’s sister – and the other half of the pop band Veronicas – Lisa commented on both posts. 

‘Mummy says well done my Jessie,’ she wrote on the engagement video before later adding: ‘PSA: Yes, everyone. I approve!’

On the picture days later, which showed off their engagement rings, Lisa wrote: ‘Bling-a-ling to go with your Jing-a-ling.’

Jessica’s romance with Alex comes after she announced she had split from her American musician fiancé, Kai Carlton, in October 2020.

She told fans she ‘was not afforded any real explanation’ for their separation, and wished to put the relationship ‘behind her’.

At the time, the pair had been living apart for close to eight months amid COVID-19 travel restrictions – with Kai residing in Los Angeles and Jessica based in Brisbane.

‘To all the souls messaging me about Kai – we are no longer together,’ Jess told fans at the time.

‘I was not afforded any real explanation to address this with clarity here,’ Jessica added, hinting that she was dumped by her former tattooed lover.

‘While I appreciate your concern, as much of our relationship was on social media, I don’t know what to say except that I wish to put this behind me, and I’m lucky to have people who love me to support me through this time x.’

‘Thank you for your ongoing love,’ the Untouched hitmaker concluded the emotional upload.

Prior to Kai, Jessica was in a relationship with actress Ruby Rose.

Jess and Ruby briefly dated in 2008 before rekindling their romance on set of The Veronicas’ music video for On Your Side in 2016. They split once again in April 2018.

Discussing that period on the twins’ MTV reality show, The Veronicas: Blood Is For Life, Jess choked back tears as she described how her ‘isolating’ romance almost destroyed her lifelong bond with twin sister Lisa.

‘Lisa and I didn’t talk for a year. I was in a relationship that wasn’t good for me. I became isolated. I had nobody anymore, I only had my relationship,’ she said.

‘I didn’t have my mum or my dad. When it became too much for me… I walked away,’ she added.
