“I can’t wait to marry you. Thanks everyone for the love and comments this past week. Sorry if we’re not back yet, I promise we will be back 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 that encircled her diamond of the same size.

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

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 sweetheart, who shed a few tears before dropping to one knee.

In one comically beautiful moment, Alex also got down on one knee to propose to Jessica, shocking the pop idol – neither seemed to know the other had planned to pop the question.

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

“Mommy says well done my Jessie,” she captioned the engagement video, before later adding: “PSA: Yes, everyone. I approve!’

In a photo days later showing their engagement rings, Lisa wrote: “Bling-a-ling to go with your Jing-a-ling.”

Jessica’s romance with Alex comes after she announced her split from American musician fiance Kai Carlton in October 2020.

She told fans that she “didn’t get a real explanation” for their split and wanted to put the relationship “behind her.”

At the time, the couple had been living apart for nearly eight months amid COVID-19 travel restrictions, with Kai living in Los Angeles and Jessica in Brisbane.

“To all the people texting me about Kai – we’re not together anymore,” Jess told fans at the time.

“I didn’t get any real explanation to answer that clearly here,” Jessica added, hinting that she was dumped by her tattooed ex-lover.

“While I appreciate your concern since so much of our relationship was on social media I don’t know what to say other than I want to put this behind me and I’m happy to have people who love me to support me this time x.’

“Thank you for your continued love,” the Untouched hitmaker ended 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 on the set of The Veronicas’ music video for On Your Side in 2016. They split again in April 2018.

Discussing this period on the twins’ MTV reality show, The Veronicas: Blood Is For Life, Jess choked back tears as she described how her ‘isolating’ affair nearly destroyed her lifelong relationship with twin sister Lisa.

“Lisa and I haven’t spoken in a year. I was in a relationship that wasn’t good for me. I became isolated. I no longer had anyone, I only had my relationship,” she said.

“I had neither my mother nor my father. When it became too much for me… I left,” she added.
