Catriona Balfe posed on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes wearing a gorgeous sapphire and diamond engagement ring. It featured a large round diamond, flanked on either side by blue sapphires, set on a yellow gold band.

 

Her Fiancé Tony McGill

Catriona Balfe and Tony McGill kept seriousness of their 2-year relationship under the radar, until the Outlander actress's walk down the red carpet. Nearly a year later, fans yearn for more. Alas, the public must continue to trust Catriona's sole comment to People, "I'm very happy."

Mum remains the word. Of course, a celebrity's silence rarely stops the rumor mill from grinding. Tony McGill has been identified (erroneously) as both an African-American clarinet player and a brawny Scottish snooker player.

(For those not in the know, like me, snooker is a form of billiards in which a player uses the cue ball to sink the 15 colored balls into the pockets in a particular order.)

In reality, Catriona's Tony is the former manager for the Fratellis, a Scottish band known for their grand performances which evoke "unbridled dancing, singalongs and a sweaty sense of fraternity." {source}

He also composes music and co-owns a popular London bar called The Library Pub. The Library promotes itself as Islington's most popular late-night venue, featuring blues and jazz performances, comedy acts, film screenings, and art exhibitions. They serve Thai cuisine and a tasteful drink selection including cocktails, craft beers, wine, and spirits.

 

Catriona Balfe

Born in Dublin, Catriona Balfe moved to Paris at the age of 19, where she began a modeling career. For ten years, she modeled for top names such as Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Armani, Chanel, and more.

During her modeling career, Catriona lived in Paris, Milan, London, Hamburg, New York City, Tokyo, and more. In 2009, she left modeling and moved to LA to pursue her vocation as an actor.

In 2013, Catriona Balfe landed the lead role in the hit TV series Outlander. To portray Claire Fraser, Catriona has drawn upon her experience as a model learning to acclimate herself to the customs and values the many different countries she called home.

Playing such an honest, strong, and resilient character has been a dream for Catriona. In 2016, she told Vanity Fair, "I think that is such a great place to go to in your work every day — to play someone who has such resilience. It can only make you feel better about everything in your life. I feel very grateful to be able to go to work every day and play her." {source}

Rumor has it that Catriona and Tony plan to tie the knot in Italy. We'll see if the rumor mill gets it right this time.
