Marc Jacobs and his boyfriend, former fashion model and scented candle brand owner, Charlie Defrancesco, are now engaged. The joyous event happened yesterday in a Mexican restaurant. The 54-year-old fashion designer traditionally knelt down and made an offer to his beloved, to which he answered “yes”.
The engagement was timed to coincide with Charlie's birthday, which the couple decided to celebrate in a Mexican restaurant in New York. Dinner was going on as usual, but suddenly all the workers and visitors got up from their seats and started dancing to Prince's famous song - Kiss. Charlie was surprised and thought that such a flash mob was invented for him by Mark for his birthday. He started filming the action on the phone, but then Mark got down on one knee and made him a marriage proposal. Then Defrancesco understood what all these dances were for. When Charlie said yes, the entire audience burst into applause. The wonderful event ended with a hot kiss.
All this was captured in a video that Jacobs himself soon posted on his Instagram page. "And this is what happened …" Charlie Defrancesco, will you marry me? " Many thanks to everyone who helped make this video happen. And to my fiance, who is always for me. I love you!" - he signed the video.
Mark and Charlie have been dating for a couple of years. Defrancesco used to be a model in the past, and now he has his own company for the production of scented candles. Lovers often travel and often appear at fashion shows, which is required by Jacobs' profession. True, Mark and Charlie do not like social parties - they prefer home gatherings.
As a reminder, this is not Jacobs's first marriage. Prior to that, in 2008, he proposed to his boyfriend Lorenzo Martone, in 2009 they legalized the relationship, but broke up a year later. It is hoped that the second engagement and second marriage will last longer for Marc Jacobs.
Another boyfriend of Mark was Harry Louis, a former porn actor. Harry announced his breakup with Mark on Instagram. “I want to be the first to tell you the news … Mark and I decided not to continue our relationship as boyfriends … Distance and lack of time due to difficult work schedules is not a reality, and Mark is such a wonderful and amazing person that I think is he deserves a boyfriend who at least lives in the same city with him."
Harry added that he and Mark still love each other and the decision to leave was mutual. “We will appreciate every special moment we spend together, but now a new chapter has begun for both of us … We both focused on work. So those who have always supported us - do not be discouraged, life goes on. Well, and those who prayed that such a day would come - please, here it is. Marc Jacobs and Harry Louis are not officially a couple anymore !!!"
