Joaquin Phoenix engaged

Joaquin Phoenix has announced he is planning on marrying his yoga instructor girlfriend.

Joaquin Phoenix has confirmed he is now engaged to wed his yoga instructor.

The 40-year-old Her actor revealed the news during an episode of The Late Show with David Letterman, which aired Monday December 8.

And Joaquin confessed he’s shocked about becoming betrothed.

“This is the crazy part of the story,” he recalled to host David. "We started dating, and I think she’s the one. I proposed to her and she said yes. If everything works out [I’m getting married].”

Joaquin claims he fell in love with his future wife while she was teaching him yoga.

The star was blown away by her technique after she demonstrated one pose in particular.

“First we do these breathing exercises and I go, ‘I can do this’…and then she says we are going to get in the first position — the ‘harnessing of the hog,’” Phoenix shared of meeting his fiancée for the first time. “Before I can say, ‘Who is the hog?’ She grabs me — and it’s a compromising and vulnerable position — and she gets a strap and puts it [around me] and she’s thrusting [against] me and I go, ‘Oh, no! My back pain!’ And she goes, ‘No, that’s your emotional back pain.’”

Phoenix did not identify the woman he is going to marry.

The Inherent Vice star has never been married before. He was most recently linked to 20-year-old DJ Allie Teilz and he dated Liv Tyler in the 1990s.
