Allison Janney confirms Anna Faris' engagement Content Exchange

Allison Janney has confirmed Anna Faris is engaged.

The 43-year-old actress sparked speculation she was set to wed Michael Barrett - who she has been dating since 2017 - in November when she was spotted with a diamond ring on her engagement finger, and now her 'Mom' co-star has revealed she previously celebrated the impending nuptials of the couple.

Allison told Us Weekly magazine: "I know she's been engaged for a long time. I kept it very quiet, I'll have you know!

"So, I celebrated with them a long time ago."

Just a few months before engagement rumours swirled around Anna - who has seven-year-old son Jack with second husband Chris Pratt - and the cinematographer, the blonde beauty admitted she had "struggled" with the idea of getting married again because of the divorce process.

The 'Overboard' actress - who was also married to Ben Indra from 2004 to 2008 - said: "I believe in love and monogamy and I believe in the commitment with a relationship, but I do struggle, having been through it a couple of times now, with the idea of our legal system."

And Anna also admitted she wasn't sure if she even believed in the institution of marriage anymore.

She said: "I am a romantic. I believe in a partnership, I believe in companionship. I just don't know if I believe in a ceremony of a wedding."

The actress explained she would "need to figure out what the purpose is" before she got married for a third time.

Elaborating on her concerns, Anna confessed: "Is it safety for your children? Is it convention? Is it so other people respect your relationship more? ... For me, I'm just not quite sure where it fits."
