Steel Magnolia’s Meghan and Joshua Are Engaged!
Is the sound of wedding bells in Steel Magnolia‘s Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones’ near future? According to Joshua, yes! Well … maybe.
“I’d like to do it next year on my birthday (July 10),” he dishes to Country Weekly.
But Meghan isn’t quite sure about her beloved’s date of choice. “We were thinking about it,” she says. “See, he just thinks July 10 because of his birthday and I’m going, ‘Well, do you know if it’s a Saturday? Is it a Tuesday?’ He doesn’t think about those things.”
And apparently, the future groom has had a lot of time to think about those things! Joshua gave Meghan his great-grandmother’s antique engagement ring prior to winning CMT’s ‘Can You Duet’ back in 2009. We’re not sure why (or how) the couple has kept this secret for two years. But we do know the reason they haven’t yet walked down the aisle: a mutual bad habit.
“We’re both bad procrastinators,” Joshua claims.
“We’re terrible,” the bride-to-be confirms. “We went to Vegas for the ACMs, and we went to dinner and we’re sitting there with our friends. We’re like, ‘We should just go get married. Why not?’”
Josh quips, “We ate too much!”
“And we were tired,” Meghan adds. “So we feel like we’re married, because we’re too tired to get married. It’s like an old couple or something.”
Though they’ve been technically engaged for a few years now, Joshua may have to get down on one knee once again. “He’s waited so long that he’s going to have to re-ask,” Meghan jokes.
