Remember early 2023? Deuxmoi was diving deep on the January 26th podcast episode of Deux/U into the will-they-won't-they saga of Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson. Remember that giant emerald sparkler Dakota was sporting? Engaged? Maybe engaged-ish? The world needed answers!

Well, buckle up, because things haven't exactly gotten clearer. Back in 2023 our trusty sources gave us the intel: a resounding "YES" on the engagement front, but with a twist. Apparently, these two lovebirds are the epitome of low-key. Elopement? Private ceremony under a full moon? Totally their vibe. One exclusive Deuxmoi source told us, “Yes, she is engaged to Chris. They’re so low-key and have talked about eloping or having a small private ceremony.” A second exclusive source added, “Yes, they’re engaged, but it’s not really an official thing.”

Fast forward to present day, and the plot thickens! A Chris Martin fan encounter this week threw a wrench into the whole narrative. Apparently, Chris himself spilled the tea (or maybe chamomile?), declaring himself single to a fan who was hitching a ride with the friendly rocker who later recounted the meeting on X.

Here's the thing: we still think they're engaged. But here's the kicker: it's their engagement, their rules. Maybe it's an unconventional, open kind of thing, like the whispers in our DMs suggest. Or maybe, just maybe, that summer wedding rumor is actually true, and they're planning a low-key bash to rival Beyoncé's secret ceremony (remember that one?).
