When the interviewer spotted the ring, the actress responded,
Oh yeah, I’m engaged. I haven’t told anyone yet — I mean, I haven’t told the world. I wanted to keep it private.
The lovebirds first met in 2016 at a bar with some mutual friends. Speaking of her partner, Zoe said:
It’s so relaxing to be around someone where you can be a hundred percent how you feel.
A year and a half into their relationship, Glusman decided to pop the question in February 2018. Although the actor initially wanted to propose in Paris, he ended up getting down of his knee in their living room instead. Kravitz recalled,
I was in sweatpants. I think I was a little drunk.
Glusman couldn’t have made the moment more romantic. He lit some candles and put on Nina Simone (her favorite), before laying down and hugging her. Zoe continued,
I could feel his heart beating so fast — I was like, ‘Baby, are you OK?’ I was actually worried about him!
Glusman ultimately dropped to one knee, and Kravitz said, “ ‘Yes, stretch! Stretch to calm your heart down!’ ”
Karl then pulled out a box with the most amazing ring inside. In fact, it was the exact one she had been fantasizing about. The actress stated,
He nailed it. And I love that it wasn’t this elaborate plan in Paris. It was at home, in sweatpants.
On 29th June 2018, Zoe Kravitz tied the knot with her fiance turned husband, Karl Glusman at her father, Lenny Kravitz’s home in Paris.

Recently, the notoriously private personality Zoe Kravitz opened up about her married life during an interview with Elle. She said,
The best part of being married is being able to have the odd fight and knowing neither of us is going to walk out the door. The commitment feels safe.
Kravitz explained her upbringing played a crucial role in solidifying her relationship with Glusman.
I’m used to my family living in different cities, yet we stay close while all doing our own things. Karl has his own career and needs to focus on that, but we’ve been together for a few years now, and we know where we are.
The couple often makes public appearances together, most notably at the Saint Laurent Fall 2017, where they couldn’t look classier. Fans cannot help admire the remarkable fashion sense of this wonderful pair. Meanwhile, the husband and wife duo is yet to welcome kids into their family.
