  • Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly did an interview with Vogue that was published on Monday.

  • Kelly, 31, told Vogue that he designed Fox's engagement band with thorns.

  • Fox, 35, and Kelly announced their engagement with an Instagram post on January 12.

Machine Gun Kelly revealed that Megan Fox's engagement ring was designed with thorns, "so if she tries to take it off, it hurts."

Kelly, 31, whose real name is Colson Baker, and Fox, 35, sat down for an interview with Vogue published nearly one week after their engagement. The couple was dating for a year and a half before Kelly popped the question.

During the interview, Kelly shared details about the engagement ring he co-designed with British jewelry designer Stephen Webster. Kelly previously explained in an Instagram post that the ring was set on magnetic bands and features a diamond and an emerald stone — his and her birthstones, respectively.

"It's a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment. It was just carved into the teardrop, straight out of the mine. And the diamond was directly from Stephen," Kelly told Vogue. "The concept is that the ring can come apart to make two rings. When it's together, it's held in place by a magnet. So you see how it snaps together? And then it forms an obscure heart."

Kelly also noted that the ring features a thorn design.

"And you see this right here? The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts," Kelly said before adding, "Love is pain!"

The couple also said during the interview that they chose to share the news on social media to "control the narrative."

"As opposed to someone just catching a weird cell phone picture of a ring on our hand and being like, whoa!" Baker said. "But yeah, I didn't expect it. I just recorded it on my cell phone. And it wasn't like we had photographers or anything. It was just like me setting my phone against a cup."

On January 12, Fox posted a lengthy engagement announcement to her Instagram account alongside a video of the moment Kelly dropped on one knee.

"Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him," Fox, 35, wrote. "And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes."

"… and then we drank each other's blood," she added.

The couple initially met in March 2020 while filming "Midnight in the Switchgrass" before confirming their relationship in June 2020.

Fox was previously married to Brian Austin Green for ten years and they share three children. Fox and Green finalized their divorce in October 2021, Entertainment Tonight reported.

Kelly shares one daughter with his ex, Emma Cannon.
