As fans know, this news came just a few months after Rydel got engaged to longtime boyfriend Capron Funk. Back in February, the R5 member took to Instagram and shared the exciting news with fans and followers. Capron got down on one knee in the middle of a softball game between both of their families, and he even wore a pink baseball tee that read “Capron asked Rydel to marry him.”
“I said, ‘Hell yes,’” Rydel captioned a collection of photos of her and Capron on Instagram. She also gave her 1.3 million followers a closer look at her engagement ring in a separate post.
