American actress Emma Roberts is reportedly engaged to boyfriend Evan Peters.

According to Extra, the 26-year-old actor proposed to the Wild Child star over the holidays in New York City with a pink and gold diamond ring. They later celebrated New Year in London.

Photographer Tyler Shields took to Twitter to congratulate the newly engaged couple, also posting a picture of Peters trying to catch Emma.


The 22-year-old star, who is the daughter of American actor Eric Roberts and niece of actress Julia Roberts, and Peters have been dating since 2012, after meeting on the set of Adult World.

In July, Emma was arrested after allegedly attacking Peters and leaving him with a bloodied nose and a bite mark. She was taken into custody in the Canadian city of Montreal following a physical altercation with Peters in a hotel room.

"It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding. Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it," representative for the actors told Us Weekly in a statement at the time.

"They're a couple of young kids," a source told the publication of the two. "Their romance is pretty extreme. They just behave in a way that's very passionate."

Emma had talked about her relationship with Peters during an earlier interview with Nylon magazine.

"We first met at a dinner party, and then we worked together on a movie [Adult World], which we did not date during," she said, "We didn't get along, actually – he wouldn't speak to me. But it turned out that we both liked each other, so months later, we started dating, which worked out for the best."

Emma and Peters currently star together on the hit FX series American Horror Story: Coven.
