Elon Musk’s ex-wife, Talulah Riley, has announced that she’s engaged to Love Actually star, Thomas Brodie Sangster.

Riley, who first met Musk back in 2008 at a bar in London, got married to the Tesla founder two years later.

The pair were married twice. First from 2010 to 2012, and then again between 2013 and 2016.

Riley, who has starred in Inception, St Trinians, and Pride & Prejudice, has been open about her relationship with Musk since going their separate ways.

After separating for good in 2016, Riley has said that Musk remains ‘a great friend’ and that they shared a ‘very deep love and connection’.

Now, Riley has revealed she’s engaged for the third time.

Riley met her new fiance, the actor, Thomas Brodie Sangster, on the set of Pistol where Sangster plays the radical and eccentric manager of the Sex Pistols, Malcolm McLaren.

Riley herself featured in the show, playing iconic fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood.

Speaking last year, Riley revealed that the pair hadn’t even acknowledged one another as a romantic possibility until the show had wrapped up production.

Now the happy couple have decided the time is right to take things to the next level, announcing their engagement on social media.

Sharing the news on Musk’s very own, X, Riley wrote: “Very happy to share that after two years of dating, Thomas Brodie Sangster and I are engaged.”

Musk himself responded to the tweet after just five minutes, commenting ‘Congratulations’ alongside a heart emoji.
