Matty Healy & Gabbriette Bechtel Are Engaged & Their Dating Timeline Is So Sweet

Wedding bells are ringing for The 1975’s Matty Healy and model-musician Gabbriette Bechtel. ICYMI, Healy’s relationship with Bechtel started not long after his short-lived fling with singer Taylor Swift ended in June 2023. Healy even served as a muse for Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department, which many were convinced was heavily Matty-coded.  

After just a few short months of dating, Bechtel took to Instagram to announce their engagement on June 11, showing off a black diamond ring on *that* finger. In the Instagram story, she wrote, “MARRYING THE 1975 IS VERY BRAT,” referencing Charli XCX’s latest album “BRAT” and tagging Healy in the caption. Healy then reposted this Instagram story, seemingly confirming rumors of an engagement. 

With Healy and Gabbriette’s confirmed engagement, it’s time to look at just how this couple came to be.

This foodie and musician couple seem to be a perfect match.
