Former Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr and Snapchat co-founder and chief exec Evan Spiegel are engaged, she confirmed Wednesday with a picture of her ring — posted on Instagram. 

Ouch. 

But never fear, she did dress up the blingy photo with a Snapchat-style filter showing Bitmoji versions of herself and her beau, with cartoon Evan down on one knee offering a smiling cartoon Miranda a huge diamond and saying, “Marry Me!”

“I said yes!!!,” she wrote.

It’ll be a second wedding for Kerr, 33, who split with actor Orlando Bloom in October 2013 after three years of marriage. She and Spiegel, 26, met in L.A. in 2014 at a dinner for Louis Vuitton and were friends before they started dating in 2015. They kept the relationship private until earlier this year, and according to TMZ, moved into a $12-million, 7,100-square-foot Brentwood house together in May. 

Spiegel founded Venice-based Snapchat — which started out as a way to share self-destructing photos and has evolved into a social-media platform with a multibillion-dollar valuation that Kim Kardashian used Sunday night to tear the rug out from under Taylor Swift — when he was attending Stanford University. While at Stanford, he memorably participated in the Greek system. Last September, he showed up in Forbes 400 as the world’s youngest billionaire

Kerr, meanwhile, has for years been among the world’s top-earning models, though she dropped to No. 6 on Forbes’ ranking in 2015, when she earned an estimated $5.5 million. 

The Aussie native is also a mother of one, sharing 5-year-old son Flynn Christopher Bloom with her ex-husband.
