Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner have never officially declared themselves a couple, but it seems the teens might be ready to take the big leap into marriage.
There were reports this week that Jaden may have proposed to Kylie, who is still just 16 years old.
Kylie Jenner sparked the engagement rumors on Thursday when she posted to Instagram a picture of herself posing in the mirror and showing off a shiny rock on her left ring finger.
Fame, the agency responsible for the photograph, helped push the engagement rumors further with a caption that read:
“Rumors are starting to swirl that Kylie’s boyfriend Jaden Smith proposed to Kylie after she recently posted an instagram photo of herself wearing a ring!”
As J-14 notes, this isn’t the first time that Kylie has posed wearing an engagement ring, but the site notes that this time it looks serious. To further the speculation, Kylie later posted a picture of the two of them together and wished Jaden Smith a happy birthday.
Even though they don’t call themselves a couple, Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner have gotten quite close lately. Jaden flew out to Europe in May for the wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and a witness told E! News that the young couple were seen making out during the reception.
If there is a wedding in the future, there might need to be some work between the Jenner and Smith families. Recent reports said that Will and Jada Smith have barred Kylie’s older sister Kendall from coming to the house due to her bad attitude.
“Jada took an instant dislike to Kendall; she’s got a rude mouth on her,” a source close to the Kardashian family told Star magazine. “The way she spoke to Jada’s housekeeper was atrocious and arrogant.”
If Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner are engaged, they aren’t giving any indications publicly. Neither teen has spoken up to either confirm or deny the proposal reports.
