Veronicas star Jessica Origliasso is ENGAGED to partner Alex Smith

Jessica Origliasso and her girlfriend Alex Smith are engaged.

The Veronicas star, 37, announced the good news on Thursday as she and her jewelry designer partner showed off their giant diamond rings.

She posted photos of the couple, who everyone loved, to Instagram with the caption, “WIVES. (still crying a week later.) I’ve waited for you my whole life.”

“I can’t wait to marry you. Thank you everyone for the love and comments over the past week. I’m sorry if we’re not back yet, I promise we’ll be 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 wore a thin gold band with a massive diamond on top, while Alex had a much thicker gold band surrounding her equally sized diamond.

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

Jessica “closed” the Paris Catacombs and proposed to Alex as they toured the tunnels lined with human skulls.

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

In a hilariously lovely moment, Alex also got on one knee to propose to Jessica, which shocked the pop idol — it seemed neither knew the other had planned to pop the question.

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

“Mummy says well done my Jessie,” she captioned the engagement video, before later adding, “PSA: Yeah everyone. I agree!’

Days later, Lisa captioned the picture showing her engagement rings: “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 given “no real explanation” for their split and wanted to “put the relationship behind”.

At the time, the couple had been living apart for almost eight months due to COVID-19 travel restrictions – Kai lived in Los Angeles and Jessica in Brisbane.

“To all the souls that send me messages about Kai – we’re not together anymore,” Jess told fans at the time.

“I wasn’t given any real explanation to clearly address this,” Jessica added, hinting that she was dumped by her former tattooed lover.

“While I appreciate your concern as much of our relationship has taken place on social media I don’t know what to say other than wanting to put this behind me and I’m lucky to have people who love me ‘to support me this time x.’

“Thank you for your enduring love,” the Untouched hitmaker concluded the emotional upload.

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

Jess and Ruby dated briefly in 2008 before rekindling their romance in 2016 on the set of The Veronicas’ music video for On Your Side. In April 2018, they separated again.

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

“Lisa and I haven’t spoken for a year. I was in a relationship that wasn’t good for me. I have been isolated. I didn’t have anyone else, I just had my relationship,” she said.
