WHO IS BENJAMIN MASCOLO?

While the internet celebrates Thorne's engagement, the identity of the lucky guy who won her heart remains vague to most.

Many mistook Mascolo for singer Machine Gun Kelly due to similarities in their facial features at the onset of their relationship.

Those good looks have certainly paid off in her love life.

Benjamin Mascolo, 27, is a singer, like the "Shake It Star," performing as part of the two-man band Benji & Fede. Aside from his musical pursuits, the star has also made his way in acting, starring alongside Thorne in the movie "Time Is Up."

HOW LONG HAVE THEY DATED?

Mascolo and Thorne began dating in 2019, shortly after the actress' split from her ex-boyfriend, Mod Sun. They were first spotted together in April but made their romance Instagram-official in June that year.

During the world premiere of "Her and Him," Thorne's directional debut, the duo proved themselves as the ultimate sweethearts, displaying PDA on the red carpet.

Earlier this month, the actress and singer took to social media to appreciate her fans for their support through the years, especially on her latest song, "Shake It."

She accompanied the heartfelt message with a video of herself lip-singing to the new single while wearing only an oversized red flannel over high-waisted leather shorts.

Her flawless skin, visible underneath the open flannel, left fans gushing about the singer's hotness and good looks.

Those good looks have certainly paid off in her love life, with stars like Gregg Sulkin, Tyler Posey, Scott Disick, Mod Sun, and Tana Morgan making up her romantic history.
