After Jon Lovitz and Jessica Lowndes posted photos of each other online, implying that they were in a romantic relationship, fans began to wonder if the pair were engaged or even married. However, Lowndes is not Jon Lovitz's wife.
Actor Jonathan Michael Lovitz, known for his comedic stints, is most recognized for being on the hit comedy show "Saturday Night Live" in the '90s.
He also famously voiced Jay Sherman in "The Critic" and appeared alongside fellow comedian Adam Sandler in several films.

However, despite being a public figure, Lovitz enjoyed his privacy and kept his personal life under wraps. That was until 2016, when Jessica Lowndes shared a series of photos with a ring on her finger.
Was the singer and actress, known for "The Haunting of Molly Hartley" and "Altitude," engaged or married to Lovitz?
DID JON LOVITZ AND JESSICA LOWNDES GET TOGETHER?
In 2016, Lowndes left fans curious about her love life after posting several romantic photos of what seemed to be a proposal. The "90210" alum teased her followers that a new man captivated her heart and even added a snap of a diamond ring to her Instagram feed.
In one of her photos, Lowndes snapped an older man's hand placed on her thigh alongside the caption, "His hands are wise and tell a thousand stories." Meanwhile, she revealed in the photo itself, "There's a new man in my life."
The mystery man turned out to be Lovitz, who also posted a photo with Lowndes on his Twitter account. "Easter with my bunny," he wrote alongside three heart emojis.
The joke could have stopped there, but the show included Lovitz's name in the actual “in memoriam” montage.
Unfortunately, they are not a couple. The pair only teamed up to promote Lowndes's new music video for "Deja Vu (Remix)," which features the actor as a sugar daddy. The singer took the role of his love interest, which made sense of all the photos produced.
IS JON LOVITZ ALIVE?
In 2015, news about Lovitz's passing swirled around the internet after "Saturday Night Live's" 40th-anniversary celebration insinuated his death. "SNL" has seen several stars come and go in the past years, changing its cast members.
Steve Martin's opening monologue began by paying tribute to "those SNL greats who are no longer with us." He went on to mention names of departed comedians, including the very much alive Lovitz.
The joke could have stopped there, but the show included Lovitz's name in the actual "in memoriam" montage. NBC later confirmed that Lovitz was definitely not dead and living well.
In fact, the comedian is continuing his career in the entertainment scene and is still performing in Los Angeles nightclubs. He also performed in Nashville, where he called his audience "friendly."
