Rebel Wilson drops some big personal news at Disneyland

We were delighted when Rebel Wilson came out after finding love with entrepreneur Ramona Agruma in June last year — and now the happy couple have made things official!

Wilson has posted to her Instagram account photos of herself and Agruma announcing their engagement at Disneyland.

“Thank you @tiffanyandco for the stunning ring 💍 and to Bob Iger and the incredible team at Disneyland @disneyweddings for pulling off this magical surprise!” the Pitch Perfect star posted.

The big news from the Aussie actress caused a spike in trending wedding searches with data revealing that Google searches for Disneyland proposals increased by 6,500% in America after Wilson announced her engagement on Sunday night. Nationwide searches for ‘Disneyland wedding’ also rose by 522% in the hour after Wilson uploaded her engagement news to Instagram.

The romantic news comes as Wilson and business partner Carly Steel launched Fluid, a new dating app designed to help everyone find their perfect match, regardless of their sexual orientation, and reflects Wilson’s own journey of discovering love.

“You shouldn’t have to tick a box to define yourself or your sexuality. Love is much more complex and nuanced than that,” said Wilson. “I know firsthand how difficult it is to navigate the dating world, especially when you don’t fit into traditional labels. That’s why I created Fluid. No other app gives people the freedom to just be themselves, wherever they’re at on their journey, and explore new possibilities in a safe space without categorization. It’s a modern way of looking at love and dating.”

According to a 2020 study by The J. Walter Thompson Innovation Group, 48% of Gen Z participants identified as “sexually fluid.” A YouGov survey found 49% of people between the ages of 18-24 identified as something other than 100% heterosexual. 

“You can be on Fluid and be anywhere on the sexuality spectrum,” said Wilson. “It’s for everyone who is open to looking for love and connections in an inclusive space. Whether you identify as LGBTQIA+, straight or you’re just interested in checking out a wider dating pool, we want everyone to feel comfortable using the app and feel like they belong to the Fluid community.”

Fluid doesn’t require users to check boxes defining themselves or their sexuality in the sign-up process. Instead, as users begin to interact with profiles, the advanced filtering algorithm learns about their attraction and preferences and starts suggesting compatible matches. By not requiring people to explicitly state what they’re into, it helps them feel more comfortable in opening themselves up to new possibilities and belonging to a community with intersectionality at its core.

“Fluid is the first app that evolves with you and your preferences,” said Carly Steel, co-founder and CEO of Fluid. “Whether you’re looking for a long-term relationship or something more casual, Fluid is there to help you find your perfect match.

Fluid is available for download in the App Store now.
