Are Vanessa Merrell and John Vaugh Engaged?

While Vanessa Merrell is relatively private about her personal life, she took to her Twitter account in 2021 to announce her relationship with musician John Vaughn! The couple’s Instagram debut showed them celebrating the 4th of July.

More than a year later, John Vaughn got down on one knee and proposed to Vanessa, which she happily accepted and announced through her Instagram account.

Vanessa’s twin, Veronica, also shared the same sentiment and congratulated the couple shortly after.

While several fans were surprised and agreed that the photos and videos of Vanessa and Hootie were cute, many expressed their distaste for Hootie’s actions. Fans also accused him of using Vanessa and their past relationship for clout.
