Shannon Nelson has been showing off her ring finger sparkle courtesy of “Ted Lasso” star Brendan Hunt since June 30. Hunt, the co-creator, and star of the Emmy-winning TV show has had new a goal on the horizon: becoming the husband to his beloved long-time girlfriend. He stunned fans with a beautiful East-West, emerald-cut diamond ring. Read on to learn more about the love story between this couple.
The Bride to Be
Born in 1975 in California, Shannon Nelson is a producer and actress. She rose to fame with roles in “Alice and the Monster” and “Drop Dead Gorgeous.” A television actress as early as 1993, she and was nominated for a Florence Film Award in 2020 for her performance in “Ruth.” Nelson and Hunt have been very private about their dating life, but pictures of them together have been circulating since 2013, when the two actors co-starred in “Absolutely Filthy.” They also share a son, two-year-old Sean Theodore Nelson Hunt. Many previously speculated that the two had already secretly tied the knot, but now we know they haven’t!
The Starry Groom
Brendan just wrapped up his third and final season of “Ted Lasso”, which has enjoyed incredible success. As co-writer, co-creator, and star of the show, he has won multiple Screen Actors Guild Awards, Golden Globes, and Emmys. In its first season alone, the show was nominated for 20 Emmy Awards. Although he must be saddened to wrap up his current profitable project, he expects to enjoy this next adventure just as much, and he certainly started it off right with a brilliant choice of ring.
When asked what’s next, the couple agree that they need some time off to decompress. Brendan has hinted at the possibility of “Ted Lasso” spin-offs, but Shannon has insinuated more than once that they could also decide to be done with the television business altogether. Whether they continue with the “Ted Lasso” story, create a new television adventure, or stay home together to be a family, we’re sure they will relish the next chapter of their lives.
Glimpses Into the Couple’s World
As mentioned, Hunt and Nelson are famous for keeping personal details out of the public eye. We have only seen a few glimpses of their love life and what happens behind the scenes on Instagram throughout the years. However, the family can frequently be seen toasting Shannon on Mother’s Day and hanging out in various spots as a family. Additionally, when their son, Sean, was 14 months old, the couple were filming in the United Kingdom. They had trouble getting their baby back into the U.S. with the correct passport information, and Hunt broke his social media silence to post about it on Instagram.
There’s also one especially heartfelt post on Brendan’s birthday, about Shannon’s feelings for her future husband. She describes him as insanely talented, a football fan, and a hard worker, busting his tail to provide for their family and allow them to enjoy life together. They have been transparent about their struggle to conceive, and the subsequent joy at finally having a baby. Aside from these instances, there aren’t many more occasions where we get to hear about their personal lives.
The Instagram Announcement
Thankfully, the couple did choose to share engagement news with fans. They decided to announce their pending nuptials by posting on both of their Instagram profiles. Brendan first posted a pic of his future bride in her gorgeous ring, smiling and giddy, lovingly captioned “The majestic @snoopshann, so rarely photographed in her natural habitat, captured here in the act of saying ‘yes’,”. Shortly after, they also posted to Shannon’s social media. She mentioned that many people assumed they had already said “I do” but explained that they had other family priorities first. She exclaimed that she was excited to marry Brendan and that together, they are “a wonderful family and will be for always.”
The photo of Shannon accepting Brendan’s proposal is the main clue we have into details of the ring. While further information has not yet been released by the couple, rest assured we will announce any news as it becomes available. We can see in the picture a stunning East-West, emerald-cut diamond, sitting on a detailed, gold band. Some have surmised that the band is encrusted with smaller stones. The ring is classy and elegant, just like their love story. When details become available, we will reach out to Benjamin Khordipour from Estate Diamond to assess the value of this unique ring.

New Jewelry, New Adventures
It is fitting that the precious picture of the couple sharing a joyful moment together showcases her magnificent jewelry front and center. Not only can we see that she loves the stone Brendan chose for her, but that their excitement for the future reflects in its brilliant light. Many fans are hoping that this isn’t the last we’ll hear from the brilliant writer of “Ted Lasso”, and all fans are cheering for this sweet couple to embark on the next phase of their journey together.
