Michelle Dockery Is Engaged!

Congratulations are in order for Michelle Dockery. The Downton Abbey actress and her Irish boyfriend John Dineen are engaged!


The Express reports 33-year-old Dockery, who plays Lady Mary in the period drama, was seen wearing an engagement ring at a recent script read-through.

"She looked over the moon and was showing it off to all the cast and crew," a source told the newspaper. "It's wonderful news and everyone is delighted. She and John make a lovely couple."

Dockery has been dating Dineen, who works in financial PR, since 2013 after she was introduced to him by her Downton co-star Allen Leech (he plays Tom Branson).

There are no details on when the couple are planning to get hitched, but it sounds like Michelle is keen to make a style statement when she does walk down the aisle.


"I enjoy dressing up much more than I used to," she told M&S Style and Living magazine in December.

"I think I went through a phase when I thought that only a certain style suited me. But I learnt that as you get to know fashion a bit you can mix it up. I've always said my style is classic and simple, but lately, I have started to play around a lot more with colour and style."
