The 51-year-old cinematographer flashed the ring while dining with the 44-year-old actress and her son Jack, eight, at Tallula’s Mexican restaurant in Santa Monica.
Though the exact date of Barrett’s proposal is unknown, the Scary Movie star confirmed the engagement during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in February 2020.

According to Us Weekly, the lovestruck 51-year-old singer and the 48-year-old actor ‘are spending almost every night together when they’re not working’ and laughing at ‘anyone who says they’re rushing things.’
On Friday afternoon, the pair were spotted with Ben’s son Sam, 9, and J-Lo’s daughter, Emme, 13. The blended family grabbed lunch together at a Country Mart in Brentwood, Long Island amid reports that both J-Lo and Ben want to be ‘involved’ in the lives of each other’s children.

IT’S REALLY OVER: Comedian John Mulaney, 38, and his wife Anna Tendler, 36, look to be calling it quits for good, two months after the Mulaney asked for a divorce. According to Page Six, the ‘heartbroken’ Tendler has spent the past few days ‘quietly’ moving out of their marital home in Los Angeles, while Mulaney goes public with his new girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, 41.
While Tendler has kept a low profile in recent months, Mulaney was seen out enjoying a date with new girlfriend Munn at an In & Out in LA last week. The comedian laughed alongside his new leading lady as they dined al fresco after sources reported the couple is ‘going strong’ despite his divorce. Munn is reportedly convinced she found her ‘dream guy’ nearly one month into their relationship, which became public just a few days after news broke that Mulaney had left his wife of six years.
ZACH BRAFF PAINTS PUGH AS A SPY: Florence Pugh’s boyfriend Zach Braff, 46, has commissioned a portrait of his girlfriend, 25, as the enigmatic spy Yelena Belova in Black Widow. The portrait, which was revealed on social media on Thursday, saw the Scrubs star enlist the help of ‘legendary’ painter Phil Noto to create the new artwork in honor of the film’s release.
Zach originally met Florence in August 2018 when he directed her in his 12-minute Adobe Creative Cloud short film, In the Time It Takes To Get There. Last week, the Oscar-nominated star admitted she avoids sharing couple snaps with her ‘magical’ boyfriend because she knows it ‘bugs people’ as he’s ‘not who they expected’ her to date. ‘It’s my life and I’m not doing anything to please people or to make it a better headline or story,’ the actress, who has a 21-year age difference with Braff, told The Sunday Times Style magazine.
SPEAKING OF UNEXPECTED FRIENDSHIPS….Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were ‘spotted on another secret date’ at a private concert in Los Angeles over the weekend amid ongoing romance rumors. Images of the stars attending Mustafa’s private concert appeared on the Instagram account Deuxmoi, which showed The Weeknd with a group of friends and Angelina sitting with daughters Shiloh, 15, and 16-year-old Zahara. Earlier this month, the Oscar-winning actress and The Weekend set the internet into a frenzy after they were seen dining at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. They have since continued to heat up speculation with their latest outing.
It has been three months since the single mother to Suri Cruise and the chef-turned-actor split up after a year of romantic al fresco dates in Manhattan. It was reported that ‘different schedules and different commitments,’ were partially to blame, with Katie filming an untitled romantic feature upstate and Emilio trying to nurture his own acting career on top of working at his family’s restaurant. And after the split, Emilio was said to be leaning on friends for support but as the breakup was confirmed he was glimpsed by single New Yorkers on the celebrity dating app Raya. ‘It’s not just Raya — he’s on a bunch of other dating apps too. He didn’t exactly hide the fact that he’s broken up from Katie,’ an insider told Page Six at the time.
Despite Michael rocking a new addition on his ring finger, Anna was still proudly sporting her yellow cushion-cut diamond engagement ring.
The stunning ring is estimated to be ‘worth somewhere between $25,000-$50,000,’ according to Brides.
As they dined, Michael kept one armed wrapped around Anna, who looked edgy in a striped polo top and a pair ultra skinny jeans.
She wore her bleach blonde hair down and a parted to one side, while seemingly going makeup-free for dinner.
The House Bunny actress had a black hoodie slung over her arm and a brown leather coin purse in hand as she strolled through the restaurant’s parking lot.
The engaged pair were joined by Anna’s darling son Jack, who she shares with ex-husband Chris Pratt.
Anna and the 42-year-old Marvel star famously split in August 2017 after eight years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in October 2018, as reported by TMZ.
Pratt went on to date Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter Katherine, who he would propose to in January 2019.
‘Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you,’ Chris wrote in an Instagram post confirming the proposal.
The pair wed on June 8, 2019 and welcomed their first child together, daughter Lyla, in August 2020.
Faris first met Barrett on set of her 2018 comedy flick Overboard. The pair reportedly started dating sometime in 2017.
They were first pictured out together in September 2016, with a source divulging to People at the time that Anna had been ‘hanging out with Michael for weeks’ and had just ‘started seeing each other more frequently.’
Anna and Michael have kept their relationship extremely private.
It was Faris’ Mom costar Allison Janney who first spilled the beans on the pair’s secret engagement.
‘They’ve been engaged for a long time,’ revealed Janney in an interview with Us Weekly in January 2020. ‘I kept it very quiet, I’ll have you know! So, I celebrated with them a long time ago.’
She noted to the outlet that she had no knowledge of the proposal until she ‘saw the ring one day’ on set of her and Anna’s now-canceled CBS sitcom.
‘I went into her room to work on lines, and then I was like, “What is that ring on your finger?” she recalled.
‘I think she was waiting for everyone to notice. “Oh, that’s it,” and then, yeah, it was fun.’
