Childhood pen pals in London, actress Carey Mulligan and singer Marcus Mumford lost touch long ago. They recently reunited. They soon will be married.
After five months together, the Mumford & Sons singer, 24, popped the question to the Never Let Me Go star, 26. “They’re a great couple,” a pal says.
Things got serious when Mulligan and pal Jake Gyllenhaal caught a secret Mumford & Sons show in Nashville, Tenn. The rest, as they say, is history.
Mumford broke up with singer Laura Marling in late 2010.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
